Roanoke County's Department of Management and Budget has received the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) Distinguished Budget Presentation Award every year since 1987. This award is the highest form of recognition in government budgeting.
Distinguished Budget Presentation Award
The GFOA established the Distinguished Budget Presentation Awards Program (Budget Awards Program) in 1984 to encourage and assist state and local governments to prepare budget documents of the very highest quality that reflect both the guidelines established by the National Advisory Council on State and Local Budgeting and the GFOA's best practices on budgeting and then to recognize individual governments that succeed in achieving that goal.
Documents submitted to the Budget Awards Program are reviewed by selected members of the GFOA professional staff and by outside reviewers with experience in public-sector budgeting.
