Monticello, NY – Sullivan County Treasurer Nancy Buck is proud to announce that her office has again been honored with the Financial Reporting Achievement Award from the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA). The County also received a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting from the GFOA.
The award was bestowed this month after an impartial panel of judges determined the County’s 2017 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) met GFOA’s high standards, including demonstrating a constructive “spirit of full disclosure” in communicating financial details and motivating people to read it.
“I very much want to thank my staff, including Shannan Armbrust and Lucrezia Anderson, for their hard work, dedication, professionalism and cooperation with the Division of Management and Budget – and all of the departments who help manage and document the financial affairs of the County – which has enabled us to win this prestigious award for at least the past two decades,” said Buck. “There is a significant amount of daily work that County staff are required to perform and a professional financial management process that culminates in this annual achievement.”
“The fact that we’ve earned this award year after year is testament to the diligence of the County’s talented staff,” agreed District 1 Legislator Scott Samuelson, chair of the Legislature’s Management and Budget Committee. “Taxpayers can be proud and confident that their money is properly and transparently managed and reported.”
The GFOA is a nonprofit association serving approximately 17,500 government finance professionals, with offices in Chicago and Washington, DC.
