APS Budget Wins Distinguished Award

A national association serving government finance professionals throughout North America has recognized APS for its commitment to meeting the highest principles of governmental budgeting.

APS recently was awarded a Distinguished Budget Presentation Award by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United State and Canada.

The award represents a significant achievement, reflecting the commitment of the governing body and staff to meeting the highest principles of governmental budgeting. In order to receive the budget award, APS had to satisfy nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation. These guidelines are designed to assess how well the budget serves as:

  • a policy document
  • a financial plan
  • an operational guide and
  • a communications device.

Budget documents must be rated proficient in all four categories and the 14 mandatory criteria within those categories to receive the award.

A certificate of recognition for budget presentation was awarded to Ruben Hendrickson, APS executive director of Budget, Planning and Analysis.

The Government Finance Officers Association is a nonprofit professional association serving more than 17,500 governmental finance professionals throughout North America. The Distinguished Budget Presentation Awards Program is the only national awards program in governmental budgeting.
