    AICPA Statement on Nomination 

    Published September 23, 2010

    NEW YORK  (Sept. 23, 2010) — The following is a statement by AICPA CEO and President Barry Melancon on President Obama’s nomination of Gene L. Dodaro to be Comptroller General of the United States, General Accountability Office:


    “We have a long working history with Gene in his role as acting Comptroller General and Chief Operating Officer at the GAO.  As a 37-year veteran of the GAO, Gene will provide the leadership needed as our nation wrestles with massive and unsustainable budget deficits.  While we believe the Comptroller General should be a Certified Public Accountant, if a non-CPA is to have this role, Gene's background and experience makes us comfortable going forward.”
