The most prestigious recognition for government assessment agencies has been awarded to the Los Angeles County Office of the Assessor. Assessor Jeffrey Prang was presented with the Certificate of Excellence in Assessment Administration (CEAA) by the International Association of Assessing Officers (IAAO) on September 27, 2017. The CEAA is awarded to those agencies which integrate best appraisal and administration practices and meet professional standards set by the IAAO. In receiving this honor, Los Angeles joins only 38 other jurisdictions out of more than 18,000 in the world. In California, Los Angeles is the first county to receive this honor. The accreditation was a year-long process that included an intense evaluation of all operational and administrative aspects of the Assessor’s Office. Congratulations to each member of the Office, whose service to the public and outstanding work in meeting the highest standards made this award possible.
