City earns budget award


For the second year in a row, the City of Centennial has received the national Distinguished Budget Presentation Award from the Government Finance Officers Association.

The industry award was created to acknowledge “outstanding achievement in budgeting practices and effective budget presentation from a governmental entity.”

City Manager Jacque Wedding-Scott has credited the award to her staff’s adherence to a citizen-led city visioning project released two years ago.

To qualify, a budget must serve as the following:

Policy document

Financial plan

Operations guide

Communications device

A Certificate of Recognition is given to the individual or department that is primarily responsible for drafting the budget document.

Centennial’s 2010 certificate has been presented to staff members in Wedding-Scott’s office and the city’s finance department.

According to the Government Finance Officers Association, the award’s recipients “have pioneered efforts to improve the quality of budgeting and provide an excellent example for other governments throughout North America.”

The organization is a nonprofit professional association serving more than 17,600 government finance professionals throughout North America.
