Every year since 1995, the District has received a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting award for its comprehensive annual financial report. The Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) issues the award as the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting.
Attaining the award represents significant accomplishments by a government and its management. The reports are 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 comprehensive annual financial report.
The GFOA is a nonprofit professional association serving more than 20,000 government finance professionals with offices in Chicago, IL and Washington D.C.
