The District’s Financial Services department continues to earn substantial acclaim for its efforts in managing the district’s budget and finances. Cobb received the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award this month from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA)! The award reflects the District’s commitment to meeting the highest principles of governmental budgeting.
The CCSD budget had to satisfy nationally-recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation, which assess how well a budget serves as a policy document, financial plan, operations guide and communications device. Budget documents must be rated “proficient” in all four categories, and the 14 mandatory criteria within those categories, to receive the honor.
