Distinguished Budget Presentation Award

Distinguished Budget Presentation Award LogoTo receive this award, the County satisfied comprehensive guidelines set forth by the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) designed to assess how well the budget document fulfills four major purposes:
  • The budget document should serve as a policy tool
  • The budget should present a clear financial plan
  • The budget should be a guide for the organization's operations
  • The budget should serve as a communications medium
Oakland County has received this GFOA award for every multi-year budget submitted since the program’s inception in 1984. At that time, Oakland County was the first Michigan community and the 11th in the nation to achieve this distinction.
