Government Finance Officers Association presented the West Linn-Wilsonville School District with the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award on Tuesday, Jan. 20.
The award represents a significant achievement, reflecting the commitment of the district and staff to meeting the highest principles of governmental budgeting. In order to receive the award, school districts must meet nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation. Those guidelines are designed to assess how well the district's budget serves as:
a policy document
a financial plan
an operations guide
a communications device
Budget documents must be rated "proficient" in all four categories and in the 14 mandatory criteria within those categories to receive the award. The Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) advances excellence in government finance by providing best practices, professional development, resources, and practical research.
