UG Receives Distinguished Budget Award

Congratulations to the Unified Government’s Budget Department for being awarded the GFOA Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for its annual budget for the fiscal year beginning January 1, 2018.

In order to receive this award, a governmental unit must publish a budget document that meets program criteria as a policy document, as an operations guide, as a financial plan, and as a communications device. This is the 5th consecutive year that the Government has achieved this prestigious award.

The Distinguished Budget Presentation Awards Program is specifically designed to encourage state and local governments to prepare and issue budget documents of the highest quality. Top-quality documents are essential if citizens and others with an interest in a government’s finances are to be fully informed participants in the budget process. Better budget documents contribute to better decision making and enhanced accountability.

Congratulations to the Budget team which consists of Reginald Lindsay, Michael Peterson, Judi Her, Jud Knapp and Deasiray Bush. Take a look at the video below for more information about the GFOA Awards.
