The city of Santa Clarita has received the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada for its annual comprehensive financial report for fiscal year 2021-22. This year marks the 34th consecutive year that the city has received this award.
“The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in governmental accounting and financial reporting,” wrote Michele Mark Levine, director of the Technical Services Center of the GFOA, according to a news release from the city.
The annual comprehensive financial report was judged by an impartial panel to meet the high standards of the program, the release said. This included demonstrating a constructive “spirit of full disclosure” to clearly communicate its financial story and motivate potential users and user groups to read the report.
The GFOA is a professional association servicing the needs of 21,000 federal, local, state and provincial-level government finance officials and other finance practitioners.
