City Receives Award for Distinguished Budget Presentation
WILSONVILLE, Ore. — For the 21st consecutive year, the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) has recognized the City of Wilsonville’s Finance Department with the “Distinguished Budget Presentation Award” for the fiscal year 2018-19 budget document.
The recognition from GFOA reflects the commitment of the City Finance staff to meet the highest principles of governmental budgeting standards. To qualify, a budget document must be rated proficient as a policy document, a financial plan, an operations guide and a communications device; additionally, it must satisfy 14 mandatory criteria within those four categories.
“This award demonstrates the hard work put in by the City’s Finance department to effectively present the City’s budget to the community year after year,” City Manager Bryan Cosgrove said.
The GFOA award recognizes that the City has met or surpassed nationally recognized accounting guidelines for effective budget presentation; the GFOA delivered a Certificate of Recognition for Budget Presentation to the City.
In 1984, the GFOA established the Distinguished Budget Presentation Awards Program to encourage and assist state and local governments to prepare budget 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 succeed in achieving that goal. The City of Wilsonville has received this award continuously since fiscal year 1998-1999.
