The state of North Dakota has been awarded the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for its 2021-23 biennium budget by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA).
“We appreciate the assistance of all state agencies that help us gather information to prepare the state budget, and are honored that the GFOA recognizes our commitment to quality,” said Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Director Joe Morrissette. “This award reflects our success in meeting the standards of GFOA in developing a state budget that serves as a policy document, a financial plan, an operations guide, and a communications device.”
This is the 15th consecutive budget-cycle that North Dakota has received the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award. The GFOA also presented a Certificate of Recognition for Budget Presentation to OMB for its primary role in creating the budget document.
Each biennium, OMB prepares the governor’s recommended budget for the upcoming biennium, which is then presented to the legislature for approval and enactment.
