The Government Accountability Office has opened a new center for excellence to mentor U.S.-based and overseas audit organizations that aim to increase the transparency and accountability of government agencies.

GAO said Thursday the Center for Audit Excellence will offer training, technical assistance and evaluation service offerings to auditors.

“The center will allow us to leverage GAO’s broad institutional knowledge to help audit shops hone their skills,” said Gene Dodaro, U.S. comptroller general and chief of GAO.

The agency enlisted several of its former senior executives to manage the center’s operations.

GAO wants to help state, local and foreign accountability organizations in work areas such as financial and performance auditing, internal controls assessment and audit oversight through the center.
