Distinguished Budget Presentation Award Program
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.
Cumberland County has been an award winner every year since 2008.
