Park Authority Recognized for Excellence in Financial Reporting

Certificate of AchievementThe Fairfax County Park Authority has received a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) of the United States and Canada for its annual comprehensive financial report for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2023.

The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment. The report has been judged by an impartial panel to meet the high standards of the program, which includes demonstrating a constructive “spirit of full disclosure” to clearly communicate its financial story.

“We have an exceptional team of financial professionals who work tirelessly to ensure that accuracy and transparency are hallmarks in our stewardship of the Park Authority’s financial resources,” said Executive Director Jai Cole. “Their financial reporting efforts have been recognized year after year and play an essential role in maintaining the Park Authority’s credibility and integrity with those we serve.”

The GFOA advances excellence in government finance by providing best practices, professional development, resources and practical research for more than 21,000 members and the communities they serve.
