The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) has awarded the Coconino County Finance Department the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting.
The award recognizes the department’s commitment to meeting the highest principles of governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management.
“It’s a tremendous achievement to once again be nationally recognized for our excellence in financial reporting,” said Bonny Lynn, Coconino County Finance Director. “Every member of our team, led by Tom Johnson, CPA, Accounting Manager, works extremely hard to ensure the audit is accurate and we continue to meet our own extremely high standards for accounting.”
Award recipients have led efforts to improve the quality of financial reporting and provide examples for other governments to follow from throughout North America. The department has won the award 3 consecutive years.
“On behalf of the Board of Supervisors, I’m very proud of the continued excellence demonstrated by our Finance Department,” stated Chairwoman of the Board Liz Archuleta. “This award signifies the commitment to accuracy and professionalism of the department staff and evidence of their great service to the people of Coconino County.”
