Government Finance Officers Association Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial  Repo

2019 Comprehensive annual financial report recognized 

The City of St. Augustine has been awarded the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) for its comprehensive annual financial report for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2019.

The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment, which the City has earned for more than 25 consecutive years, represents a significant accomplishment by the City of St. Augustine and its Financial Services Department.  In conjunction with the Certificate of Achievement, the Financial Services Department was also awarded an Award of Financial Reporting for its role in earning this notable achievement.

According to GFOA, the report 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 and motivate potential users and user groups to read the report.

On Monday, April 26, at the regularly scheduled City Commission meeting, the City’s 2020 comprehensive annual financial report will be presented.

For additional information about the award and the annual financial report, contact the Financial Services Department at 904.825.1030.
