City of Little Rock Receives Award for

Excellence in Financial Reporting


(Little Rock, AR – 3/1/13)


The Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting has been awarded to the City of Little Rock by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) for its comprehensive annual financial report (CAFR).  The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting.  Its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management.


“The Finance Department Staff is responsible for the CAFR and they have worked diligently to ensure a consistent level of quality” said City Manager Bruce Moore.  “This is the 30th time the City of Little Rock has received this award. We are very proud of this significant achievement.”


The CAFR has been judged by an impartial panel to meet the high standards of the program including demonstrating a constructive spirit of full disclosure to clearly communicate its financial story and motivate potential users and user groups to read the CAFR.


The GFOA is a non-profit professional association serving approximately 17,500 government finance professionals with offices in Chicago, IL and Washington, D.C.
