The City of Mississauga's Finance Division was awarded the Distinguished Budget Presentation
Award for the 2009 Budget from the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA).
The GFOA established the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award Program to encourage and
assist local governments in preparing budget documents of the very highest quality that reflect
the guidelines established by the National Advisory Council on State and Local Budgeting and
the GFOAs best practices on budgeting.
Documents submitted are reviewed by selected members of the GFOA professional staff and by
outside reviewers with experience in public-sector budgeting.
