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. “Our vision,” explains 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.”

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.

The National Association of Construction Auditors' inaugural Annual Conference was a huge success!

Over 160 attendees participating in sessions related to the control environment of construction projects, fraud, government contracting, and ethics. Attendees represented a wide variety of firms in the construction, auditing, and accounting industries.
