AGA Director (At-Large)
The Honorable Suzanne Bump just concluded a 12-year tenure as Massachusetts’ elected State Auditor. Having previously served as a state representative and cabinet secretary, Auditor Bump has consistently shown herself to be dedicated to effective and efficient state service. As State Auditor, she conducted performance audits and public assistance fraud investigations, and reviewed privatization proposals and state mandates on local governments, and served on numerous other state agency boards.
Taking office after a failed peer review, she made auditing excellence a priority and instituted a wide range of programs that promoted professional development, quality control, and the deployment of new technologies. Her efforts resulted in award-winning reports in Medicaid auditing and police training assessment, as well as in IT development. They also identified more than $1.5 billion worth of improper payments and prompted major administrative and legislative reforms in special ed collaboratives, Medicaid administration, child welfare, veterans’ services, public safety, and regional transportation funding.
Auditor Bump currently serves on AGA’s national governing board, and she is a past president of the National State Auditors Association. She is a graduate of Boston College and Suffolk University Law School.
