Government Finance Officers Association gives Lauderhill Budget the Distinguished Budget Award

The City of Lauderhill has been awarded Distinguished Budget Presentation Award by the Government Finance Officers Association. This award is the highest form of recognition in government budgeting and represents a significant achievement by the city.

It reflects the commitment of the governing body and staff to meeting the highest principals of governmental budgeting.  In order to receive the budget award, the city had to satisfy nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation.  These guidelines are designed to assess how well an entity's budget serves as a policy document, a financial plan, an operations guide, and a communications device.

Budget documents must be rated "proficient" in all four categories and the fourteen mandatory criteria within those categories, to receive the award.

In addition a Certificate of Recognition for Budget presentation is also presented to those that have been primarily responsible for its having achieved the award.  This has been presented to  the Finance Department of the City of Lauderhill.
