The National Association of Construction Auditors (NACA) has been approved as a registered sponsor on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors.
“This approval by the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) is a critical achievement for our association,” comments NACA Secretary/Treasurer, Larry Baker. “It enhances our ability to offer first-class training programs to the construction auditing and construction management community. What’s really exciting is that our association already includes as members, the recognized industry training leaders such as, Rich Townsend, Ron Risner, Robert McDonald, and Denise Cicchella.”
Training courses expected to be offered including various roundtables, are:
- Construction Auditing – An Overview
- Construction Auditing – A Beginner’s Guide
- Government Construction Auditing – A Beginner’s Guide
- Construction Auditing – A Practical Guide
- Government Construction Auditing – A Practical Guide
- Construction Auditing – An Expert Guide
- Construction Audit – What Can a Contractor Expect?
Additionally, the NACA has begun planning for their first annual Construction Auditing & Control Management Conference in 2010.
The National Association of Construction Auditors (NACA) was created to enhance the control environment related to construction projects, by addressing the needs of:
1. Those auditors/accountants who spend a significant amount of their efforts auditing and/or controlling construction projects; and
2. Owner construction/facilities management personnel who want to improve their knowledge base of contracts and process controls resulting in their construction projects being better managed and controlled; and
3. Project Managers/construction management personnel who want to improve their knowledge base of process controls, thereby improving the overall product delivered to their customers.
“Our vision,” explains NACA Chairman & Founder, Brian Felix, “is to bring all the project team members together to exchange knowledge and ideas to improve the overall control environment for the Owners, delivering them greater value. Auditors/accountants can improve by increasing their knowledge of the construction, architecture, and engineering disciplines; while facilities development/management and construction management personnel (Project Managers/Cost Engineers/Project Accountants) can improve their product by increasing their understanding of project cost controls.”
As stated on their website (http://www.thenaca.org), the NACA mission is to unite those individuals and be recognized as the authority on construction project controls by:
- Providing a forum through which the Association’s members can meet to exchange ideas and share insight into each others related area of expertise.
- Providing members with the resources, information, and leadership that enable them to provide valuable services in the highest professional manner to benefit the public as well as employers and clients.
- Developing and coordinating programs dedicated to the purpose of improving professional standards of construction auditors.
- Enhancing the role and promoting the image of the construction auditor and construction control professionals.
- Providing the professional Certified Construction Auditor (CCA) designation to instill confidence in employers and clients when they secure the services of a professional construction auditor.
- Providing the Construction Control Professional (CCP) designation to increase the confidence in customers that they will receive the best value when they secure the services of a contractor/construction manager.
An Advisory Board has been established by the National Association of Construction Auditors to seek out experts in the fields of auditing, construction management, real estate development, architecture, and engineering to help serve the association and its members by providing expert counsel and guidance.
The NACA grants the designation of Certified Construction Auditor (CCA) and Construction Control Professional (CCP) to the individuals with the expertise in these areas. The National Association of Construction Auditors is committed to providing resources, information, and leadership for NACA members, their clients, and the public to ensure the highest standard of construction controls possible.
For a limited period of time, the National Association of Construction Auditors (NACA) is currently accepting applications under the grandfathering provision for the Certified Construction Auditor (CCA) and Construction Control Professional (CCP) designations, setting the standard in these fields (http://www.thenaca.org). The provisions are a point-based system based upon education, training, and experience.
