KPMG Consulting Gets High Marks from Georgia Teachers
KPMG Consulting has been awarded a $22.5 million contract to set up a software system to administer the pension fund of the Teachers Retirement System of Georgia (TRSGA).
The group chose KPMG Consulting because of the "extensive experience with the public retirement systems and large-scale systems integration projects" of the firm's National Retirement Practice.
TRSGA serves approximately 250,000 members and manages $38 billion in pension funds.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
