Finance officer receives award for excellence in financial reporting

The Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting has been awarded to the city of Vermillion 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, department, or agency designated by the government as primarily responsible for preparing the award-winning CAFR.  This has been presented to Michael D. Carlson, finance officer.

The CAFR has been judged by an impartial panel to meet the high standards of the program including demonstrating a constructive "spirit of full disclosure" to clearly communicate its financial story and motivate potential users and groups to read the CAFR. 

The GFOA is a nonprofit professional association serving approximately 17,500 government finance professionals with offices in Chicago, IL and Washington, DC. 

This year marks the sixteenth year Carlson has received this certificate of achievement.
