City receives highest honor for financial reporting
SEGUIN, Texas – The accolades for the City of Seguin’s financial reporting keep rolling in. Our Comprehensive Financial Report (2017) was recognized with by the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) with the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting. The certificate is a top honor for government finance, and the City of Seguin has received the recognition every year since 2008 – that’s nine straight years!
“It really means a great deal to me and my department. We work hard all year to insure everything is reported accurately. Then we work very hard with our auditors, Armstrong, Vaughan and Associates, PC to insure everything is presented properly in our comprehensive annual financial report. We work with them not only on the presentation of the financials, but also on analyzing the year end and providing them with statistical information. I am very fortunate to work with a very knowledgeable staff and outside auditors,” said Susan Caddell, Director of Finance.
Caddell was also recognized again this year with the Award of Financial Reporting Achievement. She received the honor as the individual primarily responsible for preparing an award-winning Comprehensive Financial Report.
The Government Finance Officers Association of America (GFOA) is responsible for selecting the winning financial reports. They are judged using high standards including demonstrating transparency and clearly communicating the city’s financial story. ###
