M110 - M110 - Natural Disasters – How Governments Can Mitigate the Risks of Costly Recovery


Jul 22, 2019 2:05pm ‐ Jul 22, 2019 3:20pm

Description

Planning ahead to mitigate natural disaster risks can help protect public funds by reducing the need for costly recovery. The session looks at opportunities and challenges decision-makers face when attempting to promote resilience investment.

  • Estimates from the National Institute of Building Sciences show that, on average, investments in disaster resilience save $6 for every $1 spent. A panel of state and local officials and GAO will discuss the benefits and challenges of building and evaluating the state of disaster resilience, the federal role in helping to facilitate resilience investments at every level of government and outside government, and a framework GAO has developed to help evaluate those federal efforts.

Speaker(s):

  • Kathryn Godfrey, Assistant Director, U.S. GAO
  • Asif Khan, CGFM, CPA, CISA, FCCA, Director, Financial Management and Assurance, U.S. Government Accountability Office
  • Andrew Love, Performance Audit Manager, State of Oregon
  • Melinda Miguel, CIG, CFSA, CICA, PMP, Chief Inspector General, State of Florida
  • Kelly Russell, PPM, Manager of Construction Auditing, LA Legislative Auditor
