Pittburgh Federal Executive Board Honors Auditors

By DCAA Staff Writer

DCAA Auditors Angela Botti and Natallia Vasilkova were honored by the Pittsburgh Federal Executive Board with the Silver and Bronze Rookie of the Year awards, respectively.

Ms. Botti, Silver Award winner, has worked in the Pittsburg Office for two and a half years, starting as an intern and rising to auditor. During her brief career, Ms. Botti has accepted the lead role on various types of audits quickly expanding her knowledge and skills. In each audit, her attention to detail allowed her to find discrepancies, which may result in saving to the government.  In addition to her work efforts with DCAA, Ms. Botti is also very active in community service and charity efforts. She actively participates in The Relay for Life, the national fundraiser of the American Cancer Society. She has been active in this capacity since the age of 13 and continues to remain active in these events.  Ms Botti’s work ethic, communication skills, eagerness to learn, and willingness to help others makes her a great asset to the Pittsburgh office and DCAA.

Mrs. Vasilkova, winner of the Bronze Rookie of the Year Award, has worked at the Pittsburgh office for just over one and a half years. Mrs. Vasilkova has a desire to achieve beyond the normal expectations of a Junior Auditor. In 2019, she was part of a team who audited approximately $68 million in contract costs, provided outstanding services to the Department of Defense, and saved taxpayers approximately $754 thousand. Mrs. Vasilkova performed a range of audit tasks from performing incurred cost audits to verification of time and attendance records to teaching the office administrative team the process for reviewing vouchers for adequacy. Mrs. Vasilkova’s professionalism, communication skills, and perseverance result in on time, quality products. Her ability to learn new techniques and apply them to her audits, along with her independence, teamwork, diligence, and ability to market DCAA services make her an extremely valuable asset to the Pittsburgh office and DCAA.
