The City of Sanford has been awarded the Certificate for Excellence in Financial Reporting by the Government Finance Officers Association.  The certificate of achievement is the highest form of national recognition in the area of government accounting and financial reporting. To achieve the award, a city’s Comprehensive Annual Financial Report is judged by an impartial panel to meet high standards of the program including demonstrating a constructive spirit of full disclosure to clearly communicate the city’s financial results and status for the year. The Comprehensive Annual Financial Report is submitted to the Government Finance Officers Association certificate program each year for review upon completion of the annual audit.

 

The city’s Finance Department was responsible for preparing and submitting the award-winning Comprehensive Annual Financial Report. This award represents the significant accomplishments of the City of Sanford’s Finance Department led by Director of Finance, Cynthia Lindsay, CGFO, CPA.
