Greenville Earns 14th Straight GFOA Budget Award
CHICAGO — The City of Greenville has once again earned the Government Finance Officers Association Distinguished Budget Presentation Award, a reflection of the commitment of staff in meeting the highest principles of governmental budgeting.
This was the 14th consecutive time that the City has won the award, which recognized the City's current biennial budget for the fiscal year that began July 1, 2018.
In order to receive the award, the City 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 14 mandatory criteria within those categories to receive the award.
