For the 22nd year in a row, the Placer County Auditor Controller’s Office has been recognized with the Certificate of Achievement Award for Excellence in Financial Reporting—the highest form of recognition in governmental accounting and reporting. The department has received this honor each year since 2001.

“Needless to say, I’m very proud of this accomplishment,” said Andrew Sisk, Placer County Auditor-Controller. “Especially since I’ve been intimately involved in all 22 years of the county receiving this award. It is a significant effort to put together these financial statements, and I’m pleased to see that our work was recognized once again.”

The Certificate of Achievement, offered by the Government Finance Officers Association, or GFOA, is awarded to recipients who exceed the standards of developing an Annual Comprehensive Financial Report. Continually accomplishing this feat requires the partnership of multiple Placer County departments.

“It is a collaborative countywide team effort that puts these financial statements together,” Sisk said. “I can thank the Public Works Department, Facilities Management, the County Counsel’s Office, the Treasurer-Tax Collector’s Office—and thank you to the board and the County Executive Office for your leadership.”

Founded in 1906 as a nonprofit professional association, GFOA advances excellence in public finance for more than 20,000 government finance professionals throughout the United States and Canada.
