Montgomery County Receives Budget Award for 28th Consecutive Year

The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) is honoring Montgomery County for the 28th consecutive year with the “GFOA Distinguished Budget Presentation Award.”  In addition to receiving the award, the County received the special recognition of “Outstanding Policy Document.”

On Tuesday, October 4, 2011, the Board of County Commissioners recognized the Montgomery County Office of Management & Budget for this outstanding accomplishment.

“This award represents nearly three decades of exceptional dedication by the OMB staff to show the taxpayers how Montgomery County is working to keep our costs down while still providing excellent services,” said County Commission President Debbie Lieberman.  “Providing our citizens with this valuable information on how their tax dollars are spent is of utmost importance during these challenging economic times.”

In order to receive this award, a governmental unit must publish a budget document that meets program criteria as a policy document, as an operations guide, as a financial plan and as a communications device.

The GFOA 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.

GFOA is a nonprofit professional association serving nearly 17,400 government finance professionals throughout North America.  The GFOA’s Distinguished Budget Presentation Awards Program is the only national awards program in governmental budgeting.
