LOS ANGELES, CA – The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors formally commended Assessor Jeffrey Prang today for pioneering innovation in assessment administration and for working to ensure excellence in service to the public – the combination of which has resulted in the Office of the Assessor earning the highest accreditation.
“Congratulations to Assessor Jeffrey Prang and the Office of the Assessor for this tremendous accomplishment,” said Los Angeles County Supervisor Hilda L. Solis. “The IAAO Certificate of Excellence is a reflection on the entire County family and the work we do on behalf of our constituents. This award recognizes the County’s shared commitment to the highest standard of public service.”
The Certificate of Excellence in Assessment Administration (CEAA) was presented to the Los Angeles County Assessor’s Office on September 27th by the International Association of Assessing Officers (IAAO), making it the first and only jurisdiction in California to receive this prestigious award.
“I am proud to accept this commendation on behalf of the more than 1,300 employees who make up the Assessor’s Office,” said Assessor Prang. “I especially want to thank the Board of Supervisors and the Chief Executive Office for supporting our ongoing efforts to make this the premier property assessment agency in the nation.”
The CEAA is awarded only to agencies which integrate best appraisal and administration practices and meet the highest professional standards as established by the IAAO. More than an award, it is an accreditation that serves as the benchmark for measuring success. Worldwide, a mere 41 jurisdictions have earned this distinction out of over 18,000.
During Prang’s tenure as Assessor, the Office has been recognized by a range of other organizations, including Government Technology magazine, the National Association of Counties, and Los Angeles County’s Quality and Productivity Commission.
