City of Little Rock Finance Department Earns Top Honor for Financial Reporting
Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) has awarded the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting to the City of Little Rock for its comprehensive annual financial report for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019.
The report 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 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,” said Chief Financial Officer Sara Lenehan. “Such an honor cannot be accomplished by one person. It takes a dedicated team of professionals that I am proud to be a part of.”
