Audit shops compete against other shops of the same size. Teams of judges, comprised of seasoned audit professionals, review the report submissions against the established criteria, and recommend performance audit reports for awards in each award category. Gold, Silver, and Bronze awards, as well as Honorable Mention recognition, may be presented to the audit shops issuing the best performance audit reports.
The Gold award recipients from each size category are provided the opportunity to share their report with ALGA members during a concurrent session at the ALGA Annual Conference, and during a webinar sometime after the conference. If the audit shop agrees to present their winning audit report, they will receive: > Travel costs to the Annual Conference, including: - Airfare at the 21-day advance coach fare - Three nights hotel accommodations - an additional night of hotel accommodations (total number of nights not to exceed four nights) may be paid if it is more cost effective for ALGA. - Airfare and hotel expenses are not to exceed $1,000. > One Conference registrationPlease note that the ALGA Conference Chair (the President-Elect) has the discretion to modify or limit the airfare and hotel accommodations when it is in the best interest of ALGA.

You should contact your Coordinator six (6) months in advance of the date when you would like your review.
