Clark County Auditor’s Office receives award

By , Columbian staff writer

The Clark County Auditor’s Office has been awarded the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting for its comprehensive annual financial report for the 2020 fiscal year. The award was given by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada. This is the 35th consecutive year the Auditor’s Office has received this award.

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

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.

“This report is an important part of the county’s commitment to transparency and accountability,” County Auditor Greg Kimsey said in a press release. “I’m very proud of the hard work by the many people throughout the county, from department office assistants and finance managers to highly skilled government accounting specialists, who create this report.”
