The city of Santa Clarita has received the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada.
The city earned the award for its Comprehensive Annual Financial Report for Fiscal Year 2017-18.
This year marks the 30th consecutive year that the city has received this prestigious award.
“The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management,” wrote Michele Mark Levine, director, Technical Services Center from the Government Finance Officers Association, in a letter congratulating the city.
The CAFR has been judged by an impartial panel to meet the high standards of the program, which includes demonstrating a constructive “spirit of full disclosure” to clearly communicate its financial story and motivate potential users and user groups to read the CAFR.
The Government Finance Officers Association is a major professional association servicing the needs of 20,000 federal, local, state, and provincial-level government finance officials and other finance practitioners.
