Gaithersburg Receives Prestigious Budget Award

by MCS Staff

The City has received the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2021 from the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) of the United States & Canada.

Gaithersburg is receiving this award, the highest form of recognition in governmental budgeting, for the 20thconsecutive time. The award is officially presented to the Department of Finance & Administration.

The City had to satisfy nationally-recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation. These guidelines are designed to assess how well a municipality’s budget serves as a policy document, a financial plan, an operations guide, and a communications device.

“We are extremely proud to receive this recognition,” said Kim Francisco, Director of the Department of Finance & Administration. “Despite the ongoing uncertainties brought on by the pandemic and the vacancy of the Finance Director position for most of the budget development timeframe, this award affirms the dedication & commitment to excellence of the City staff who worked diligently to prepare a budget that is not only accurate but easily understandable by all of the City’s stakeholders.”

The GFOA is a nonprofit professional association that represents 21,000 government finance professionals throughout North America. For more information contact the Department of Finance & Administration
