Governmental Entities

A city or county is a complex business. Layers of constituents, a nontraditional workforce and the scrutiny of the general public are blended together with rigid rules and regulations. Working with a CPA firm that is familiar with the complexities of government work is of critical importance. Our decades of specialization in this area allow us to provide the guidance and resources you need to meet the expectations and requirements of your audience.

In addition to having more than 35 years of experience as a leading CPA firm offering government entity audit services, we have worked with various sizes of city and county government agencies, many of which we’ve established long-term relationships with.

Partnering with Gardiner + Company helps you navigate the often-difficult landscape of rules and regulations with a firm that has been there, understands the territory and is invested in your success.
