We recognize that COVID-19 is disrupting normal government operations and may affect members’ ability to submit timely applications for GFOA’s award programs. We will approve extensions of the submission deadlines for those that need more time. Please submit the extension request form so we can record your extension in our system.
A government may request a 30-day extension of the submission deadline for the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting program, Popular Annual Financial Reporting program, Canadian Award for Financial Reporting, or the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award program. When a deadline falls on a weekend or holiday the submission is due the next business day. If you have any questions, please contact the GFOA office by phone at (312) 977-9700 or via email.
