Each year, the City of Pearland Finance Department produces a Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) for the fiscal year ending Sept. 30. This year, just as in the past 38 years, the City’s CAFR has received annual recognition from the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) of the United States and Canada.
To receive recognition, the City must comply with the highest standards for disclosure and provide pertinent trend information beyond that which is required by the Governmental Accounting Standards Board.
The award was presented to the Finance Department as the department responsible for preparing the award-wining CAFR and the Award of Financial Reporting Achievement.
“Another GFOA award affirms a long-standing priority of assuring Pearland’s citizens that their hard earned tax dollars are properly accounted for. I am appreciative of the hard work by all support staff that made this prestigious award possible” said Claire Bogard, Finance Director.
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 and motive potential users to read the CAFR according to a GFOA news release.
