Oakland County wins 12th straight financial reporting award

For the 12th year running, the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) has awarded Oakland County its Popular Annual Financing Award for the fiscal year 2009.

“Our Fiscal Services team continues to make Oakland County shine,” says Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson. “It is another example that we have the best of the best serving Oakland County residents.”

Every year, the Fiscal Services Division of the Department of Management and Budget compiles its Popular Annual Financial Report (PAFR) to summarize for taxpayers how the county spends their money.

The GFOA gives the award based on the creativity, presentation, ease of understanding and reader appeal of the financial report.

“We have won this award every year we have created the PAFR,” says Tim Soave, Fiscal Services manager. “The PAFR is the result of a number of people working together as a team under the coordination of Gaia Piir, our grant and program coordinator in Fiscal Services.”
