How to Submit for the PAFR Award Program

The process used to transmit a PAFR to the program depends on the format used for the PAFR:

Email: E-mail

  1. a PDF of the PAFR. If the PAFR is too big to attach, provide the precise hyperlink to the specific page which contains the popular annual financial report in the email;
  2. the completed application form: and
  3. payment information for the $250.00 fee. If paying by check, indicate clearly in the email that payment will be sent separately. Also make sure the check indicates that it is payment for a Popular Annual Financial Reporting Program review and mail it to GFOA with a copy of the application ONLY.

A confirmation email will be sent to the submitter upon receipt.

A fee is not required if this is your second year submission to the Program and the award was not granted in the immediate prior year for a report that was submitted to the Program for the first time.
