The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) is honoring Montgomery County for the 29th consecutive year with the “GFOA Distinguished Budget Presentation Award.”

In order to receive this award, a governmental unit must publish a budget document that meets program criteria as a policy document, an operations guide, a financial plan and a communications device.  Budget documents must be rated “proficient” in all four categories, and the 14 mandatory criteria within those categories, to receive the award.

“This award represents nearly three decades of exceptional financial management provided to our citizens,” said Montgomery County Commission President Judy Dodge.  “These budget documents provide our citizens with vital information on how their tax dollars are spent,”

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.
