Accountability - Citizen Centric Report (CCR)
Who best to initiate a powerful yet simple example of an easy-to-read document that demonstrates to the public a governmental entity's openness and willingness to be publically accountable than the persons that do the work ensuring that the entity is accountable. AGA has initiated a four-page document that clears out all the confusing information in government reports and highlights just the important issues. The AGA Topeka Chapter has completed such a report as an example of how easy it is to do.
This four-page report is currently being used on an annual basis by States and Municipalities across the United States. Let's get it to use in your governmental entity.
- A Certificate of Achievement was awarded by AGA's National President!
