For the 28th consecutive year, the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting has been awarded to Pima Community College by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) for the College’s fiscal year 2019 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.
The CAFR has been 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 CAFR.
“The College strives to maintain accurate, timely, and transparent financial information,” said Dr. David Bea, Executive Vice Chancellor for Finance and Administration. “This award acknowledges the work of our employees, who are dedicated to their roles as stewards of public funds.”
