SNELLVILLE –The Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting has been awarded to City of Snellville by Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada for its comprehensive annual financial report (CAFR).
The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management.
The Certificate was awarded to Snellville Controller Jan Burke for preparing the award-winning CAFR. This is the fourth time Burke was given the award in the four years she has applied for it.
“It is vital for the citizens of Snellville to trust the city with its finances,” Burke said. “This award was given to us for making sure those finances are reported accurately and carefully, a responsibility we are proud to have.”
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.
Government Finance Officers Association advances excellence in government finance by providing best practices, professional development, resources and practical research for more than 20,500 members and the communities they serve.
