Forsyth County 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 the sixteenth consecutive year. The recognition was presented to Forsyth County for its comprehensive annual financial report (CAFR) for the fiscal year ending  December 31, 2015. 

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 was also presented to Forsyth County Chief Financial Officer David Gruen, as the individual primarily responsible for preparing the award-winning CAFR. 

“I am thrilled that we have now been recognized for sixteen consecutive years. It is a testament to the hardworking Finance Department personnel – without them this certificate would not have been awarded,” Gruen said. 

Forsyth County’s CAFR was judged by an impartial panel to meet the high standards of the program including demonstrating a constructive “spirit of full disclosure” to clearly communicate its financial story and motivate potential users and user groups to read the CAFR. The CAFR is available for review on the Finance Department page of the county website.

The GFOA is a nonprofit professional association serving approximately 17,500 government finance professionals with offices in Chicago, IL, and Washington, D.C.
