Committee on Internal and External Audit
Jenet Adem, Director of Finance and Administration
From the late 1970’s through his retirement in 2002, Dave Campbell was a driving force behind the Administrative Subcommittee for Internal and External Audit. Serving first as secretary and then as committee chair, he was instrumental in developing relationships with ACEC and USDOT OIG and having FHWA appoint a liaison to the committee. He worked towards his vision of a vibrant, relevant committee by encouraging all states to attend our annual conference and to participate in work groups and task forces. In addition, he was the champion for the initial Consultant Audit Guide.
The Dave Campbell Quality Award (DCQA) is presented by the AASHTO Committee on Internal and External Audit in recognition of significant contributions to the State DOT audit community.
