The Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting has been awarded to City of Sanford by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) for its comprehensive annual financial report (CAFR) for FY 2016-17. Read the City of Sanford’s CAFR here.

The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents

a significant accomplishment by a government and its management.

An Award of Financial Reporting Achievement has been awarded Financial Services Director Beth Kelly for being the individual designated by City government as primarily responsible for preparing the award-winning CAFR.

The CAFR was judged by an impartial panel to meet the high standards of the program, which includes demonstrating a constructive “spirit of full disclosure" to clearly communicate its financial story and motivate potential users and user groups to read the CAFR.
