CHICAGO—Truth in Accounting announces its partnership with Denver University’s Daniels College of Business which will bring together these two organizations’ focus on ethical leadership. A pilot program concentrating on government budgeting and accounting will be created at Daniels’ School of Accountancy.
Since 2002 Truth in Accounting, a think tank that analyzes government financial reporting, has educated and empowered citizens with understandable, reliable, and transparent information. The organization was instrumental in bringing better financial disclosure to governments, especially in the area of state and local government pensions and other retirement liabilities.
“We are delighted to partner with Daniels and the School of Accountancy in this way,” says founder and CEO of Truth in Accounting Sheila Weinberg, CPA. “Truth in Accounting looks forward to working with the School of Accountancy and the university to help further our mission of encouraging government entities to be more ethical and transparent about their finances.”
The partnership between Truth in Accounting and the Daniels College of Business will provide faculty and students with research, mentorship, and other opportunities. This partnership will allow students and faculty to gain an in-depth understanding of government accounting and budget processes at the city, state, and federal level. Concurrently, they will also assist with analyzing and extracting data from government financial documents to help produce the annual flagship reports of Truth in Accounting: The Financial State of the States and the Financial State of the Cities.
This partnership and the Truth in Accounting project at Daniels is made possible by a generous donation from Daniels’ alumni Jack and Sheila Weinberg.
