Chatham's Annual Audit Report Agains Wins Top National Award

Post Date:07/02/2018 10:15 AM
Chatham County’s Finance Office continues its long-running streak of earning the top award from the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA), a nationwide financial reporting standards organization. The recent award recognizes the county’s comprehensive 2016-17 audit report.

Vicki McConnell, Chatham County’s finance officer and deputy county manager, will accept the award certificate at the July 16, 2018 Board of Commissioners meeting.

The award from GFOA honors local governments that produce audit reports reflecting the “spirit of transparency and full disclosure.” The guidelines also require the audit report to “clearly communicate the organization’s financial story and motivate potential users to read it.”

“Chatham County has earned this award for 29 straight years, which is phenomenal,” said County Manager Renee Paschal. “We have been so blessed to have Vicki’s leadership in finance overall, including preparation for the annual audit.”

Paschal added, “Careful management of county finances has been a key reason Chatham County is in such strong fiscal shape, even during tough economic periods.”
