Cobb & Douglas Public Health announced that it has been awarded the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting by the Government Finance Officers Association of the U.S. and Canada.
Cobb & Douglas Public Health received the award for its comprehensive annual financial report for fiscal year 2018. According to GFOA, 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.
An Award of Financial Reporting Achievement was also presented to Michele DiSalle, CDPH comptroller, as the team leader in preparing the CAFR.
This marks the third consecutive year CDPH has been recognized for excellence in financial reporting. CDPH also remains the only local public health department in Georgia to receive this award.
The CAFR has been 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 GFOA is a nonprofit professional association servicing the needs of approximately 20,000 appointed and elected local, state, and provincial-level government officials, and other finance practitioners.
