State of Georgia has been awarded a “Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting”

December 2, 2013

As Governor Deal announced in his newsletter, the State of Georgia has been awarded a “Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting” from the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) for its comprehensive annual financial report (CAFR). 

This certificate of achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of government accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management.  This is the first time the State of Georgia has received this award and it would not have been possible without the assistance of many dedicated state employees. 

The State Accounting Office would like to thank everyone involved in the CAFR process and we look forward to receiving this award for many years to come.
