Audit of Prosper Portland wins national award

We work hard to make all of the audits we produce excellent. But we’re pleased to announce that one, Prosper Portland: Disciplined property management needed to achieve future revenue goals, received special recognition: a 2017 Exemplary Knighton Award.

The Association of Local Government Auditors created the Knighton Award in 1995 to recognize the best performance audit reports produced by local government audit shops. Local governments from across the United States and Canada submit their best reports each year to be judged against five criteria:

  1. Potentially significant impacts
  2. Persuasive conclusions
  3. Recommendations that are feasible and will make government more effective and efficient
  4. Clear and concise communication
  5. Innovation.

According to these criteria, the judges found that the Prosper Portland audit was among the best of 2017. The judges noted that the report was timely, with Prosper Portland in the midst of a transition to becoming a more equitable organization. They wrote that the report “stands out among other audit reports for its engaging flow of information and effective use of graphics and multimedia.”

We produced highlights, a report, and a video to share the results of the audit.
