Linn County Receives Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for 27th Consecutive Year

Government Finance Officers Association Logo

Linn County has received the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) for the 27th consecutive year. The award is the highest form of recognition in governmental budgeting and reflects the commitment of the Linn County governing body and staff to meeting the highest principles of governmental budgeting. 

To receive the award, Linn County had to satisfy nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation. These guidelines assess how well a government’s budget serves as:

  • a policy document
  • a financial plan
  • an operations guide, and
  • a communications device

Documents submitted to the budget awards program are reviewed by members of the GFOA professional staff and by outside reviewers with experience in public sector budgeting. A budget document must be rated “proficient” in all four categories, and in the 14 mandatory criteria within those categories, to receive the award.

According to the GFOA, award recipients have pioneered efforts to improve the quality of budgeting and provide an excellent example for other governments throughout North America.
