Chamblee, GA, March 23, 2017 – The Post Reports – The City of Chamblee was recently awarded the Certificate of Achievement of Excellence in Financial Reporting by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) for its 2015 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR). The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of government accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management.
Chamblee Finance Director Travis Sims was primarily responsible for preparing the award-winning CAFR. He is supported by Kathy Hughes and Cherron Bouie in the Finance Department. The CAFR was judged by an impartial panel to meet high standards of the program including demonstrating a constructive “spirit of disclosure” to clearly communicate its financial story and motivate potential users and user groups to read the CAFR.
“Winning this award is a testament to the dedication of our City to provide accurate information to the residents of Chamblee in a format that can be easily read and understood. It is our desire to provide as much transparency in government as we can,” Sims said.
