Last week, the City of Burien was notified that it is a recipient of a ‘Certificate of Achievement for Excellence’ award from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) for its 2014 comprehensive annual finance report (CAFR).

The city said that this Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, and according to the GFOA, its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government as well as its management.

“We’re thrilled to have received this acknowledgement,” said Kim Krause, Finance Director for the City of Burien. “It’s always our goal to produce finance documents that are clear and transparent.”

The CAFR was judged by an impartial panel to meet the high standards of the program, which includes a demonstration by the CAFR of a constructive “spirit of full disclosure” to clearly communicate its financial story and motivate potential user groups to read the CAFR.

The GFOA is a nonprofit professional association serving approximately 17,500 government finance professionals with offices in Chicago and Washington, D.C.
