Goodyear awarded highest financial reporting award for 4th straight year
(GOODYEAR, AZ – April 5, 2012) The Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting has been awarded to City of Goodyear’s Finance Department by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) for its comprehensive annual financial report (CAFR). This is the fourth year in a row that Goodyear has received this distinguished award.
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 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 user groups to read the CAFR. Goodyear’s CAFR is prepared under the direction of Finance Department Director Larry Lange and Controller Theresa Simms.
The GFOA is a nonprofit professional association serving approximately 17,500 government finance professionals with offices in Chicago, IL, and Washington, D.C.
