​"After three finance directors in 18 months, our records were in disarray and we didn’t have the information we needed to make decisions. Plante Moran’s government accounting professionals (PMGAP) got our records up to date and helped us balance our annual budget through some very difficult times. I strongly suggest anyone in our situation think about this alternative.”
