N/A
DISCUSSION:
On May 4, 2017, the Government Finance Officer Association (GFOA) awarded the City of Casa Grande the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for excellence in governmental budgeting for the FY2016-2017 annual budget.  The City was originally granted the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for the FY1996-1997 annual budget and has continued to receive the award each year.  

The award is the highest form of recognition in governmental budgeting.  In order to receive this award, a City must publish a budget document that meets program criteria as a policy document, as a financial plan, as an operations guide, and as a communication device.  

In addition to meeting these requirements, a number of improvements were made to the FY2016-2017 budget document beyond the standard improvements typically made in response to GFOA comments and critiques; including an enhanced cover, a new fund / department relationship matrix, the creation of a number of new charts and graphs throughout the document, a new budget and financial summary section, a substantial reorganization of the departmental budget section, and revision of the capital improvement section.  Additionally, the budget's length was reduced by a total of 127 pages to enhance its accessibility and usability for the average reader.  Staff plans to build upon these improvements in the FY2017-2018 budget document and will continue to strive for excellence in financial reporting.
