Clemson comptroller appointed to Governmental Accounting Standards Advisory Council
CLEMSON — Clemson University comptroller Charles A. Tegen has been appointed to serve on the Governmental Accounting Standards Advisory Council (GASAC).
The 30-member council provides input to the Governmental Accounting Standards Board, the independent, not-for-profit board that establishes and improves accounting standards used in federal, state and local governmental accounting and financial reporting.
Nominated to the Governmental Accounting Standards Advisory Council post by the National Association of College and University Business Officers, Tegen has been in his current role since 1991. Prior to that, he served Clemson in the finance and internal audit areas. Before joining Clemson, he was a senior auditor with a local public accounting firm.
Tegen currently serves on the National Association of College and University Business Officers board of directors. In 2004, he was awarded the organization’s Daniel D. Robinson Award, which recognizes excellence and leadership of an individual who demonstrates a continuous commitment to the advancement of college and university accounting and reporting.
In his role with the Governmental Accounting Standards Advisory Council, Tegen joins other members who are broadly representative of preparers, auditors and users of financial information. The council is responsible for consulting with the Governmental Accounting Standards Board on technical issues on the board's agenda, project priorities, matters likely to require the board's attention, selection and organization of task forces, and such other matters as may be requested by the board or its chairman.
“Charles Tegen’s experience as a comptroller and auditor in the public university system makes him an ideal and welcome addition to the GASAC,” said Robert H. Attmore, chairman of the Governmental Accounting Standards Board. “His expertise and perspective will be an asset to the council, and we look forward to working with him.”
Tegen’s term on the Governmental Accounting Standards Advisory Council extends until Dec. 31, 2013.
Tegen earned his bachelor's in business administration from Southern Wesleyan University in Central and a Master of Professional Accountancy degree from Clemson. He lives in Central.
