District Gains Financial Award Recognition for 11th Year in a Row

Posted on: August 28, 2020 - 11:53am

The Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting has been awarded to the Coachella Valley Mosquito and Vector Control District for the 11th year in a row. This certificate is in recognition of the District’s commitment to full disclosure of finances and transparency. 

This certificate is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management. The Government Finance Officers Association, presenter of the award, 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.

“We are humbled by the recognition, and proud of our dedicated team,” said District General Manager Jeremey Wittie. “Our finance team holds standards high for quality reporting and being good stewards of public funds.”

The Financial Reporting Program (CAFR Program) was established in 1945 to encourage state and local governments to go beyond minimum requirements of financial reports. To qualify the District must maintain and publish a comprehensive annual financial report, demonstrate legal compliance, and be audited by an independent auditor who performs the audit in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards or generally accepted government auditing standards as set forth in the Government Accountability Offices.

“Over a decade of acknowledging the Board of Trustees and the Finance Department’s proficiency in overseeing the finances of the District emphasizes the exemplary work they continue to do.” Wittie said.
