According to the American Public Works Association (APWA), the purpose of the accreditation program is to provide a means of formally verifying and recognizing public works agencies for compliance with the recommended practices set forth in the Public Management Practices Manual. While it is requires self-motivated involvement, and is voluntary there are many benefits to being an APWA accredited public works program.

Audits, Inspections, Investigations... OH MY!
Audits, inspections, investigations... Although they mean slightly different things to different people, no one really gets excited about these words. Rarely do they bring happy thoughts to mind.
