The Village of Rockville Centre has been awarded the prestigious "Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting" by the Government Finance Officer Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) for the nineteenth year in a row. The recognition is for the Village’s comprehensive annual fiscal report (CAFR). The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainmen...t represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management.
When the COA is awarded, an Award of Financial Reporting Achievement is also presented to the individual designated by the government as primarily responsible for its having earned the award. This has been presented to Michael Schussheim, Comptroller for the Village, who worked closely with the auditors to assure that the Village’s financial reporting met very high standards.
"I am thankful to the staff of our Comptroller’s Office, led by Michael Schussheim, for their efforts to be up-front and accurate in the way they report the Village’s financial information," commented Mayor Francis X. Murray. "This award reflects the value this Village’s government puts on transparency for the benefit of our taxpayers."
The CAFR is 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. The GFOA is a nonprofit professional association serving approximately 17,500 government finance professionals with offices in Chicago and Washington, D.C.
