CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA — Jim Boudreau, staff auditor with Chesterfield County’s Internal Audit department, recently received recognition as a CPA from the Virginia Board of Accountancy. This board regulates certified public accountants in Virginia through a program of examination, licensure, consumer protection, continuing professional education audits and peer review oversight.
The CPA exam tests knowledge in four areas: Auditing and Attestation, Business Environment and Concepts, Financial Accounting and Reporting, and Regulation. While the exam is the same nationally, every state has its own education and experience requirements individuals must meet. Boudreau, who was previously licensed in another state, completed requirements to be licensed in Virginia.
“I appreciate Jim’s commitment to the profession and his effort to be recognized in Virginia,” Greg Akers, Internal Audit director, said. “Having his Virginia CPA license compliments and strengthens our team.”
The Chesterfield County Department of Internal Audit’s mission is to provide objective analysis and information to management and those charged with governance. This helps to provide residents an efficient, customer-oriented government with the highest ethics and integrity. Boudreau’s new credentials add to the many professional credentials held by Internal Audit’s 10-member team, which include five certified public accountants, a certified internal auditor, a certified information system auditor, three certified fraud examiners, one certified government auditing professional and a chartered global management accountant.
