Worthington Libraries was recently recognized with a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) for our 2022 Annual Comprehensive Financial Report. The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management.
The Library received an Auditor of State Award with Distinction from the office of Keith Faber, State Auditor of Ohio.
The GFOA established the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting Program in 1945 to encourage and assist state and local governments to go beyond the minimum requirements of generally accepted accounting principles to prepare annual comprehensive financial reports that evidence the spirit of transparency and full disclosure and then to recognize individual governments that succeed in achieving that goal.
The Auditor of State Award with Distinction is given to entities that file an Annual Comprehensive Financial Report and receive a "clean" audit report.
