Congratulations to the entities that have received the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting in 2015 (for the fiscal year ended 2014 comprehensive annual financial reports, or CAFRs). The complete list of the winners has been posted on the GFOA website. We would also like to thank the reviewers in the CAFR Program for volunteering their time to review reports in 2015, and the list of the reviewers have is also available.
GFOA established the CAFR Program in 1945 to encourage state and local governments to go beyond the minimum requirements of generally accepted accounting principles to prepare comprehensive annual financial reports that evidence the spirit of transparency and full disclosure, to help them do so, and to recognize individual governments that succeed in achieving that goal. More than 4,200 governments participate in the program each year, including all types (general purpose and special purpose) and all sizes of jurisdictions.
