The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) has awarded the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting to the state of North Dakota for its 2021 annual comprehensive financial report (ACFR).
“Our ACFR team has long been known for their dedication to excellence in financial reporting,” Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Director Joe Morrissette said. “With this being the 30th year North Dakota has received this national award, it is evident that our team has a commitment to ensuring financial transparency for the citizens of North Dakota.“
Morrissette added that the small team at OMB works with fiscal professionals across state government to compile the report.
“The ACFR and North Dakota’s real-time financial dashboards contribute to the state’s financial transparency by providing timely, meaningful and reliable information,” Morrissette said.
The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting.
The ACFR is required to be completed annually by OMB under N.D.C.C. 54-44-04.14.
