Finance Officers Association is pleased to announce that City of Taylor, Texas,
has received GFOA’s Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for its budget.
The award represents a significant
achievement by the entity. It reflects the commitment of the governing body and
staff to meeting the highest principals of governmental budgeting. In order to
receive the budget award, the entity had to satisfy nationally recognized
guidelines for effective budget presentation. These guidelines are designed to
assess how well an entity’s budget serves as:
a policy document
a financial plan
an operations guide
Budget documents must be rated
“proficient” in all four categories, and in the fourteen mandatory criteria
within those categories, to receive the award.
When a Distinguished Budget
Presentation Award is granted to an entity, a Certificate of Recognition for
Budget Presentation is also presented to the individual(s) or department
designated as being primarily responsible for having achieved the award. This
has been presented to Rosemarie Dennis, Finance Director.
There are over 1,600 participants
in the Budget Awards Program. The most recent Budget Award recipients, along
with their corresponding budget documents, are posted quarterly on GFOA’s
website. Award recipients have pioneered efforts to improve the quality of
budgeting and provide an excellent example for other governments throughout
