(Chicago, Illinois)—The Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting has been awarded to City of Brookings by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) 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.

An Award of Financial Reporting Achievement has been awarded to the individual(s) or department designated by the government as primarily responsible for preparing the award-winning CAFR. This has been presented to the Finance Department for the City of Brookings. 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. 

City Manager Paul M. Briseno stated, “We are honored to have this recognition from the GFOA for this distinguished award. For the sixth consecutive year, the city has demonstrated transparency in fiscal management to its citizens.”
