Does anyone have a good case study or class exercise they are willing to share related to auditing/financial reporting and transparancy? I am teaching a grad level class on Governing Public Money and would like to do a case study on this topic if I can find a good one.

Thanks!

Hi Leslie,
To answer your question about case studies relating to financial reporting and transparency ICMA has a few examples of their website!
• Arlington, TX won an award from the state of Texas for achieving the highest standards in financial reporting and transparency. You can read more about what they did and the award they won here http://icma.org/en/A..
• Phoenix is also promoting transparency in their city by creating a public report and posting it online called the City of Phoenix Condition. This is a like to the story about Phoenix which also contains a link to the report itself http://icma.org/en/A..
• This is a previously answered question on a similar topic where various local government officials chimed in about great transparency programs either in their community or ones they knew about in other communities. This might be a good resource for you to check out to get names of more cities doing innovative things with financial reporting. http://icma.org/en/i..
• This is an article from ICMA’s website about anti-corruption and transparency which also contains a like to ICMA’s report Building Transparent Communities: ICMA’s Approach. These two documents should provide useful background information as well as a few more case studies for you to look into. http://icma.org/en/i..
I hope these provide you with adequate examples for your class!
