The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) has awarded the Coconino County Finance Department the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting.

The County earned the award for the preparation of the comprehensive financial audit report (CAFR). This achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of government accounting and financial reporting.

“I’m very proud the County Finance department was recognized nationally for our meticulous and detailed audit report,” said Bonny Lynn, Coconino County Finance Director. “While the Finance Department, Financial Reporting and Audit Division was listed as the award designee, the extra effort by Accounting Manager Tom Johnson, CPA, is what earned this award for the County.”

The CAFR is judged nationally by an impartial panel to meet high standards of the program which communicates the financial story. This also motivates other entities to demonstrate the spirit of full disclosure in reporting.

“We have always greatly valued our open and transparent financial accounting system,” stated District 5 Supervisor Lena Fowler, Chair of the Coconino County Board of Supervisors. “This outstanding achievement and national recognition by our finance department is a great testament of our transparency and stewardship of taxpayer dollars.”

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