City of Rockport | "Rockport Receive Award for Financial Reporting"

What's this icon mean?

The City of Rockport has been awarded a Certificate of  Reporting by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United State and Canada (GFOA) for its comprehensive annual financial report (CAFR). The City has applied for and received the Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting every year since first applying for FY 2002-2003. 

According to City Manager Kevin Carruth, the Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting. “The attainment of this award represents a significant accomplishment for the City and the Finance Department, which is responsible for its preparation.”

The CAFR is judged by an impartial panel to meet the high standards of the programs, which includes demonstrating a constructive “spirit of full disclosure” to clearly communicate its financial story. The City is also a member of the Texas Leadership Platinum Circle Award for its financial transparency program. It was one of the first 11 cities to have earned this award from the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts.

GFOA is a professional association servicing the needs of nearly 19,000 appointed and elected local, state, and provincial-level government officials and other finance practitioners. It provides top quality publications, training programs, services, and products designed to enhance the skills and performance of those responsible for government finance policy management.
