The LBJ School has been honored to collaborate with the Texas Association of County Auditors on the annual County Auditors Institute (CAI) since the 1970's. The institute is designed to provide three full days of current and relevant information to Texas county auditors and their staff on a variety of topics including audit programs, grants management, fraud detection, governmental accounting standards and personnel management. Our goal is to ensure that the staff of any county auditor's office is prepared to provide excellent service to the citizens of Texas.

Added in the last 15 years, the New County Auditors Training (NCA) provides an introduction to the duties and resposibilites new auditors face. This program is held the day before the official start of the County Auditors Institute and runs from 8:00 a.m. through 5:00 p.m. and includes a working lunch. It provides opportunites to learn from new and seasoned auditors and develop lasting professional relationships.
