The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) is awarding the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting to the Village of Wellington’s Office of Financial Management & Budget for the Fiscal Year 2016 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR).
This certificate is the highest form of recognition in governmental accounting and reporting. Its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management.
The CAFR has been judged by an impartial panel to meet the highest 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. This year’s Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting is the 21st continuously earned by the village.
This accolade reflects the commitment the village staff has for meeting the highest principles and best practices in governmental accounting and reporting. The GFOA is a major professional association serving nearly 19,000 appointed and elected local, state and other finance practitioners. It provides top quality publications, training programs, services and products designed to enhance the skills and performance of those responsible for government finance policy and management.
