For the seventh year in a row, the County of San Diego’s 2008-09 and 2009-10 Operational Plan has earned the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA).
The award is a significant achievement for the County, reflecting the organization’s commitment to maintaining the highest standards of governmental budgeting.
To earn the award, the County Operational Plan satisfied a set of rigorous nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation. The guidelines assessed how well the County Operational Plan serves as not only a policy document, a financial plan and an operations guide, but also as a communications device.
