County Wins Financial Reporting Award for 29th Year in Row
The County’s annual financial report, also known as the CAFR, earned a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting, the highest form of recognition in government accounting and financial reporting.
“The CAFR 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…” said a GFOA press release.
“(The County’s) attainment (of the award) represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management,” it said.
The County of Hawai‘i first received the award in 1988 and has won it every year since.
County Controller Kay Oshiro will also be recognized with an Award of Financial Reporting Achievement as the individual responsible for the the Finance Department’s award recognition.
GFOA is a Chicago-based professional association serving the needs of nearly 19,000 appointed and elected local, state and provincial-level government officials, and other financial practitioners.
