14 IN A ROW - FINANCE DEPARTMENT
RECEIVES ‘AWARD OF EXCELLENCE’ AGAIN
June 24, 2014
MARION COUNTY

For the 14th year in a row, the Finance Department of Marion County Public Schools receives national recognition for its accountability and transparency efforts.

Earlier this month, the Chicago-based Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) awarded a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting to the Finance Department. The award is based on the school district’s Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) for fiscal year 2013. It’s the highest form of recognition in the area of government accounting and finance reporting and represents a significant accomplishment by a government entity and its operation.

The Finance Department oversees the school system’s $456 million budget and implements financial changes based on current law.

The award also recognizes the department’s “spirit of full disclosure” to clearly communicate its financial story and create incentive for others to read the CAFR.

For the 2013 fiscal year, Marion County Public Schools was one of just 20 school districts in Florida and one of four local entities receiving the award.
