(Chicago, Illinois)–The Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting has been awarded to Putnam County by Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) for its comprehensive annual financial report (CAFR). The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management.
An Award of Financial Reporting Achievement has been awarded to the individual(s) or department designated by the government as primarily responsible for preparing the award-winning CAFR.
The CAFR 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 CAFR.
Putnam County is proud to congratulate Finance Director Linda Cook and her team in the Finance Department: Jennifer Fricks, Barbara Vargo, and Donna Todd. We thank you for your hard work and excellence!!
