For the 30th consecutive year, the City of Akron received the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada’s (GFOA’s) Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for its 2014 budget book.  Akron’s Director of Finance, Diane L. Miller -Dawson, was also awarded a certificate of Recognition for Budget Presentation for her role in the City’s nationally recognized accomplishment.

“We have achieved national recognition for our outstanding budget presentations for the past three decades,” noted Diane Miller-Dawson.  “Once again, the GFOA has confirmed that our method of budget reporting utilizes the best practices available.”

In order to receive the budget award, the City had to satisfy nationally recognized expert’s guidelines for effective budget presentation.  Akron’s budget presentation rated “proficient” in all four categories designed to assess how well an entity’s budget serves as (1) a policy document, (2) a financial plan, (3) an operations guide, and (4) a communications device, as well as “proficient” in the fourteen mandatory criteria within those categories.

“Once again, the GFOA, which consists of a prominent group of financial experts throughout the United States and Canada, recognizes that Akron has an outstanding method of budget reporting,” said Mayor Don Plusquellic.  “Our finance department consistently works hard to produce award winning budget presentations every year.”
