National Intergovernmental Audit Forum

The National Intergovernmental Audit Forum (NIAF), created in 1973, is an association of audit executives from federal, state and local governments. It exists to improve coordination, communication, and cooperation among its members, private sector firms, and other accountability organizations to address common challenges, increase public trust, and enhance government performance, accountability, and transparency.

The NIAF works with 10 Regional Forums throughout the United States. These forums provide a means to exchange views and solve common problems, promote audit standards, and coordinate audit guides.

2017 National Intergovernmental Audit Forum & Cybersecurity Forum, July 18-19, Washington, DC.
