Area of Expertise
"Government interests me because of the need for accurate, meaningful information for elected officials & other users to assist them in making decisions. Because of the complexity of government audits and the related compliance auditing mandated by the federal Single Audit Act for federal grants, firms need to invest a considerable amount of resources to maintain a top-notch level of professionalism. Our firm had a history of making that kind of investment because we considered the government auditing and consulting area of prime importance."
When his schedule allows for a little fun, Duane enjoys rowing, gardening, attending hockey games and watching rugby.
