Annual Comprehensive Financial Report

The Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) established the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Report Program (CAFR) in 1945 to encourage and assist state and local governments to go beyond the minimum requirements of generally accepting accounting principles to prepare annual comprehensive financial reports that evidence the spirit of full transparency and full disclosure and then to recognize the individual governments that succeed in achieving that goal.

Each year the Finance Division assists the city administration with the preparation and presentation of the city's annual budget. The GFOA's established the Distinguished Budget Presentation Awards Program in 1984 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 recongize individual governments that succeed in achieving that goal.
