The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of government accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management, according to the GFOA. 

The Commission’s 2016 annual financial report was 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 document.

An Award of Financial Reporting Achievement has been awarded to the HCPHC accounting department for preparing the award-winning annual financial report.

GFOA is a major professional association serving approximately 19,000 government finance professionals with offices in Chicago and Washington, D.C.
