Government

We understand the complexities.

At BerganKDV, we understand the underlying complexities of government finance and bring a wealth of experience to bear on audits and assessments for municipalities, school districts, charter schools, colleges, universities and law enforcement agencies.

As a result of the economic recession and cuts in state aid, cities are facing increasing pressures more than ever. Our goal is to help cities better manage their finances by providing talented CPAs and staff who have extensive government experience. We are proud members of the Governmental Audit Quality Center of the American Institutes of Certified Public Accountants, which helps ensure we are informed of developments in communities.

Services

BerganKDV assists law enforcement agencies with risk assessments for their property and evidence rooms. In 2011, the Minnesota Office of the State Auditor (OSA) issued best practices for handling evidence. Law enforcement agencies are now faced with the challenge of adhering to these best practices. We review operations and security measures to help police departments mitigate risk and maintain the integrity of their property and evidence rooms. Through a customizable approach, we can offer a wide variety of services tailored to meet your department’s specific needs along with a menu of options to fit your budget.
