On July 7, 2016, the USA Today published an article entitled Puerto Rico Debt Crisis is a Lesson for Guam. One of the sources of information used in the article was Crawford & Associates Performeter® financial analysis tool. Each year, the firm prepares a Performeter® analysis on the financial health and performance of the various nations and territories that comprised the former trust territories of the US. This financial analysis by the firm is used by the US Department of Interior to assist them in monitoring the financial management of these nations and territories. We are proud to be a part of the financial management process of these entities and also proud to see The Performeter® being effectively used in the process.

In August 2016, Performeter® results were also the basis for two news articles in Saipan and the Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands regarding the financial health and performance of the CNMI government. Click here to see these articles.
