Accolades Continue for City of Mississauga's Finance Department.

Oct 10, 2012

At today's Council meeting, the City of Mississauga’s Finance Division was presented with two awards from the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) recognizing excellence in financial reporting and budget presentations.

For the 14th consecutive year, the City was awarded the Canadian Award for Financial Reporting for the 2010 Financial Report.  The award is presented to "municipalities that prepare comprehensive annual financial reports that evidence the spirit of transparency and full disclosure." 

The Distinguished Budget Presentation Award was presented for the 23rd year in a row and acknowledges the City's Business Plan and Budget document as a "document of the very highest quality that reflect both the guidelines established by the National Advisory Council on State and Local Budgeting and the GFOA's best practices on budgeting."

"Both awards speak to the work staff and Council do to achieve excellence in financial planning and reporting for the City of Mississauga," said Brenda Breault, commissioner of Corporate Services and treasurer.  "This high standard of performance shows our continued commitment to providing high quality and comprehensive information to our residents."
