Tonia Lediju, a board member of the American Center for Government Auditing (ACGA), was recently recognized for her significant accomplishments as Director of City Audits for the City and County of San Francisco. Lediju received the David M. Walker Excellence in Government Performance and Accountability Award from the National Intergovernmental Audit Forum (NIAF) at the 21st Biennial Forum of Government Auditors in Kansas City. Mo.
Lediju has more than 20 years of experience in government auditing, at both the local and state levels. She has led her nationally recognized audit department to improve transparency, increase efficiency, and better manage risk.
“Tonia is instrumental to the success of her department, transforming it into a highly reputable and efficient internal audit function, and setting a high standard for leading practices among government audit functions,” said John Wszelaki, director of the ACGA, which serves public sector U.S. members of The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA).
The David M. Walker Award recognizes government audit professionals at the federal, state, and local levels. The award is given to individuals who have made “sustained contributions to improve government performance and accountability through their leadership in transforming government organizations.”
Established in 2014, the ACGA works to advance the professional practice of auditing in the public sector by advocating its value through timely and relevant thought leadership, communication, collaboration, and education.
