Council > Annual audit again receives high marks

By Arin McKenna

The Los Alamos County Office of Management and Budget presented the FY2013 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report to council on Tuesday. `
Not only was the report given an unmodified opinion (the best opinion possible), the county’s financial reporting also received three prestigious awards.
This is the 22nd consecutive year the county has been awarded a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Associations of the United States and Canada (GFOA).
Councilors acknowledged Deputy Chief Financial Officer Joseph D’Anna’s role in the county receiving that honor. D’Anna, who leads the team preparing the financial statements, has been with the county for 20 years.
The county’s FY2013 budget also received GFOA’S Award for Distinguished Budget Presentation for the 21st consecutive year.
Councilor Pete Sheehey announced a third honor for the county’s financial practices: the New Mexico Association of Counties’ Audit Accountability Award. The annual award is presented to one small, one mid-sized and one large county.
“The award honors those who have submitted their annual financial audits in a timely manner while receiving unqualified opinions, the highest rating you can get in an audit,” Sheehey said.
