Loudoun County’s first-ever Popular Annual Financial Report has received the Outstanding Achievement Award in Popular Annual Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada.
The award recognizes jurisdictions that create annual financial reports specifically designed to be readily accessible and easily understandable to members of the general public who do not have a background in public finance. To receive the award, the report must meet high standards of creativity, presentation, understandability and reader appeal.
Loudoun’s Popular Annual Financial Report for FY 2017 is the first such report Loudoun has published and is part of the county government’s commitment to transparency. The report is intended as a companion document to the award-winning Comprehensive Annual Financial Report, presenting the highlights of the county’s complex financial activities in a concise and accessible format.
Earlier this year, Loudoun received the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting by the GFOA for the FY 2017 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report.The GFOA is a nonprofit professional association serving more than 19,000 government finance professionals in the United States and Canada.
