Clerk's Office Awarded Certificate of Achievements for Excellence in Financial Reporting

Comprehensive Annual Financial Report

Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) has awarded the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting to Citrus County for its Comprehensive Annual Financial Report for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2019. The report has been 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 report.

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.

 The Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting has been awarded to the Citrus County Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller, Angela Vick, for the 22nd year in a row by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA).  The Citrus County Clerk’s office began participating in the Certificate Program in 1998 and has received this prestigious award every year.

The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) has given an Award for Outstanding Achievement in Popular Annual Financial Reporting to Citrus County for its Popular Annual Financial Report (PAFR) for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2019.  This is a prestigious national award recognizing conformance with the highest standards for preparation of state and local government popular reports.  In order to receive this Outstanding Achievement Award, a government unit must publish a PAFR, whose contents conform to program standards of creativity, presentation, understandability and reader appeal.

This is the 4th year in a row Citrus County has received this award.  There are fewer than 500 state, local or municipal governments in the country to receive this award.  It is a team effort in gathering the information, compiling it, and proofing for a final version… just one more example of our dedication to excellence!

GFOA is a nonprofit professional association serving approximately 17,500 government finance professionals with offices in Chicago, IL, and Washington, D.C.

Both the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report and the Popular Annual Financial Report are available for citizens to access and view on the Clerk’s website at www.citrusclerk.org.
