Mineola, NY- Nassau County Comptroller George Maragos and his staff were recognized by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) for excellence in financial reporting for the third straight year. The GFOA award is for excellence in the County’s 2011 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report.
Comptroller Maragos accepted a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting from the non-profit professional association. According to the GFOA, “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.”
"During these difficult economic times, where municipalities all across our country are struggling to balance their budgets without raising taxes, it is an honor that the GFOA recognizes the excellent work the financial professionals in my office produce year after year,” Comptroller Maragos said. “This award means that our financial statements have been judged by an impartial panel to meet the highest standards for accuracy. I want to congratulate the entire staff of the Comptroller’s Accounting Division.”
Nassau County’s Comprehensive Annual Financial Report, issued last July, includes general-purpose financial statements, as well as the independent auditor’s report prepared by Deloitte & Touche, LLP.
