GFOA is a non-profit professional association serving approximately 17,500 government finance professionals and its CAFR is awarded after an impartial review panel determines the office has met high standards of full disclosure and clear public communications.
The certificate is the highest form of recognition in the area of government accounting and financial reporting. Its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government office and its management, stated GFOA.
Assessor Williams is the only parochial Louisiana Assessor to receive the CAFR. The other special district recipient is the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office.
