BernCo Congratulates the Accounting and Budget Staff for Award

1:48 PM


The Bernalillo County Manager would like to acknowledge the Bernalillo County Accounting and Budget Department for their outstanding work in preparing the budget. The Budget Office was proudly bestowed the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for the 2017/2018 fiscal years, the 16th time Bernalillo County has received this honor.

Budgeting is an important process of the government system, allowing Bernalillo County to provide goods and services in a financially practical manner, and limiting the debt and cutbacks required of unorganized spending.

Starting in 1984, the Government Finance Officers Association has operated the Budget Award Program to encourage and assist government agencies to prepare excellent budget documents in line with recognized best practices.

The association judges the excellence of agency budget presentation based on the clarity of goals and strategies, detail of capital expenditures, accuracy of financial accounts, detail of internal operations, clarity of performance measures and quality of publication.

Bernalillo County’s Budget Office received this award, the highest honor in governmental budgeting, along with 1,565 other exemplary agencies across North America.

As county manager, Julie Morgas Baca would like to congratulate the Accounting and Budget staff, and thank them for their continued pursuit of effective budget preparation for the citizens of Bernalillo County.
