The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) has awarded the Town of Marana with the GFOA's Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for its fiscal year 2016 budget and comprehensive financial plan.
This award represents a significant achievement and reflects the Town's commitment to meeting the highest principles of government budgeting. In order to receive this budget award, the Town had to satisfy nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation. These guidelines are designed to assess how well the Town's budget serves as a policy document, a financial plan, an operations guide, and a communications device.
“Awards like these demonstrate Marana's commitment to transparency and accountability to our residents," Finance Director Erik Montague said of the Town's achievement.
This is the 9th consecutive year that the Town of Marana has received this award.
The Government Finance Officers Association is a major professional association servicing the needs of more than 18,000 appointed and elected local, state, and provincial-level government officials and other finance practitioners. The GFOA's Distinguished Budget Presentation Awards Program is the only national awards program in governmental budgeting.
