The Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting has been awarded to the City of Concord by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (CFOA) for its comprehensive annual financial report (CAFR).
The certificate of achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of government accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management, note GFOA officials. This is the twenty-second consecutive year that Concord has received the award.
Concord’s CAFR was judged by an impartial panel to meet the high standards of the program including demonstrating a constructive “spirit of full disclosure” to clearly communicate the City’s financial story and motivate potential users to read the document. The document is available online at www.cityofconcord.org/citygov/finance/reports.
The GFOA is a nonprofit professional association serving apprximately17,500 government finance professionals with offices in Chicago and Washington, D.C.
