The National Association of Construction Auditors was created to enhance the control environment related to construction projects, by addressing the needs of:
Auditors who spend a significant amount of their efforts auditing and/or controlling construction projects; Owner construction/facilities management personnel who want to improve their knowledge base of contracts and process controls resulting in their construction projects being better managed and controlled; and Project managers/construction management personnel who want to improve their knowledge base of contracts and process controls, thereby improving the overall product delivered to their customers.
The NACA grants the designation of Certified Construction Auditor (CCA) and Construction Control Professional (CCP) to individuals with the expertise in these areas.
