Escambia County Receives Distinguished Budget Presentation Award

July 16, 2018

Escambia County’s Office of Management and Budget’s 2017/18 Fiscal Year Budget has received the Government Finance Officers Association’s Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for the county’s 2017/18 fiscal year budget. Escambia County has been honored to be recognized with the award every year since 1995.

According to the GFOA, the award represents a significant achievement, reflecting 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, financial plan, operations guide and a communications device. Budget documents must be rated “proficient” in all four categories, and in the 14 mandatory criteria within those categories, to receive the award.

Government Finance Officers Association is a  professional association servicing the needs of more than 19,000 appointed and elected local, state, and provincial-level government officials and other finance practitioners.
