The City of Coppell’s Finance Department has received the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award from Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) for the 13th consecutive year. The award is the highest form of recognition in governmental budgeting and represents the department’s commitment to outstanding budget content and presentation.
The fiscal year 2021-2022 budget was evaluated by a panel of independent reviewers using nationally recognized guidelines for budget presentation to measure how well the budget serves as a policy document, financial plan, operations guide, and communications device. Budget documents must be given a proficient rating in all four of these categories as well as in the 14 mandatory criteria within those categories — including financial policies and performance measures — to receive the award.
“Our staff works tirelessly to not only ensure we are responsible and accurate in our management and reporting, but also thorough and transparent,” said Director of Finance Kim Tiehen. “We’re proud to provide a budget document that is an effective tool for our organization and taxpayers.”
Founded in 1906, GFOA assists in the management of governments by identifying, developing, communicating, and promoting policies and best practices in government financial management.
