Awards

Collin County Receives GFOA Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for 14th Consecutive Year

Chicago – The Government Finance Officers Association is pleased to announce that Collin County, Texas has received the GFOA’s Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for its budget.

The award represents a significant achievement by the entity.  It reflects the commitment of the governing body and staff to meeting the highest principles of governmental budgeting.  In order to receive the budget award, the entity had to satisfy nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation.  These guidelines are designed to assess how well an entity’s budget serves as:

  • a policy document
  • a financial plan
  • an operations guide
  • a communications device

Budget documents must be rated “proficient” in all four categories, and in the fourteen mandatory criteria within those categories, to receive the award.

When a Distinguished Budget Presentation Award is granted to an entity, a Certificate of Recognition for Budget Presentation is also presented to the individual or department designated as being primarily responsible for its having achieved the award.  This has been presented to Mónika Arris, Director of Budget and Finance.

There are over 1,600 participants in the Budget Award Program. The most recent Budget Award recipients, along with their corresponding budget documents, are posted quarterly on GFOA's website. Award recipients have pioneered efforts to improve the quality of budgeting and provide an excellent example for other governments throughout North America.

The Government Finance Officers Association is a major professional association servicing the needs of more than 19,000 appointed and elected local, state, and provincial-level government officials and other finance  practitioners.  It provides top quality publications, training programs, services, and products designed to enhance the skills and performance of those responsible for government finance policy and mangement.
