The office of Orange County Comptroller Phil Diamond has received the highest accolade from an association of government finance officers, for the second consecutive year.
Diamond’s office announced Tuesday it has received the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada.
The certificate is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting. The group judges government accounting toward the goal that it demonstrates “a constructive ‘spirit of full disclosure’ to clearly communicate its financial story”, according to a news release issued Tuesday by Diamond’s office.
“The accounting and financial staff in this office deserve the highest praise for their consistently outstanding performance,” Diamond stated in the release. “Because of their skill and hard work, we have been recognized by the GFOA each year for more than three decades. I could not be prouder to work with this dedicated group of professals.”
