Monticello, NY – For the 30th consecutive time, the Sullivan County Treasurer’s Office has been accorded 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 given after an impartial panel of judges determined the County’s 2019 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) met GFOA’s high standards, including demonstrating a constructive “spirit of transparency and full disclosure” in communicating financial details and motivating people to read it.
“While Sullivan County has earned this prestigious award many times over, it’s never a guarantee that we’ll win it again. 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,” said County Treasurer Nancy Buck. “So it’s a testament to the diligence of my staff, to whom I am deeply grateful. They make it a pleasure to come to this office – not just for myself but for the public.”
The GFOA is a nonprofit association serving approximately 17,500 government finance professionals, with offices in Chicago and Washington, DC.
