Finance and budget awards


The Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) recognizes government units and public employee retirement systems whose comprehensive annual financial reports achieve the highest standards in government accounting and financial reporting. The GFOA also awards the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award to state and local governments that prepare documents of the very highest quality that reflect both the guidelines established by the National Advisory Council on State and Local Budgeting and the GFOA’s best practices on budgeting and then to recognize individual governments that success in achieving that goal.

For the CAFR award, the GFOA staff and members of the GFOA's Special Review Committee perform reviews of submitted Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports (CAFR). The award reflects the commitment of the governing body and staff to meet the highest principles of governmental budgeting. For the Distinguished Budget Award documents submitted to the Budget Awards Program are reviewed by selected members of the GFOA professional staff and by outside reviewers with experience in public-sector budgeting.

The CAFR award requires that organizations supplement their financial reports with data and research to provide a wider scope of information contained in an annual financial report. The Distinguished Budget award is the highest form of recognition in government accounting and financial reporting, and signifies that Garfield County is clearly communicating its financial bottom line to the taxpayers of Garfield County.
