Buckeye receives award for Excellence in Financial Reporting
The Government Finance Officers Association has awarded Buckeye the “Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting” for the 2018 fiscal year end Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR).
The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, and is valid for one year. Receiving this award represents a significant accomplishment by the Buckeye City Council, city management and the Finance Department.
The criteria for the CAFR is to satisfy generally accepted accounting principles and legal requirements. The report is judged by an impartial panel to ensure it meets the highest standards of the program, including demonstrating “full disclosure” of the city’s financial history and process, which encourages residents and the public to read the CAFR.
Buckeye plans to submit future CAFRs and other financial reports to GFOA to continue to build upon this success.
