(Chicago) – The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) has awarded the City of Dublin the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting.
The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting. It represents significant accomplishment by a government and its management.
The award was established by the GFOA to encourage government to go beyond the minimum requirements of generally accepted accounting principles and prepare financial reports that evidence the spirit of transparency and full disclosure
“This program ensures that our constituents have the information they need to assess our financial statements,” said Director of Finance Angel Mumma. “I am very proud of the work our staff put into preparing the 2015 CAFR.
The CAFR has been judged by an impartial panel to meet the high standards of the program, including demonstrating a constructive “spirit of full disclosure” to clearly communicate its financial story and motivate potential users and user groups to read the CAFR.
The GFOA is a nonprofit professional association serving approximately 17,500 government finance professionals with offices in Chicago, IL and Washington, DC.
