The Institute of Internal Auditors plans to open a new American Center for Government Auditing in early 2014 and has hired a new director to run it.

The ACGA will offer specialized services to meet the needs of public sector internal auditors. James Pelletier, city auditor for Palo Alto, Calif., will leave his current post and begin working at the IIA’s global headquarters in Altamonte Springs, Fla., next month, the IIA announced Monday. Pelletier has more than 15 years of internal audit experience in both the public and private sectors. He previously served as chief auditor for the county of San Diego and has been an active IIA volunteer for several years, including serving as a member of the International Public Sector Committee.
