The Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting has been awarded to Beaufort County School District by the Government Finance Officers Association for the United States and Canada (GFOA) for its Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR).
The certificate of achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management.
An Award of Financial Reporting Achievement has been awarded to Phyllis S. White, Chief Operational Services Officer, designated by the government as primarily responsible for preparing the award-winning CAFR.
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 user groups to read the CAFR.
The GFOA is a nonprofit professional association serving approximately 17,500 government financial professionals with offices in Chicago and Washington, D.C.
