(Hesperia) – In another nod to transparency, the Finance Team for the Victor Valley Wastewater Reclamation Authority (VVWRA) has received the coveted Distinguished Budget Award from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA).
The award reflects the commitment of VVWRA to meeting the highest principles of governmental budgeting, according to the Association, which serves over 17,500 government finance professionals throughout North America. The agency had to satisfy nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation that assesses how well the budget serves as:
- A policy document
- A financial plan
- An operation guide
- A communications device
“The feats that our finance team has accomplished over the past several years are second to none,” remarked VVWRA General Manager Logan Olds. “I couldn’t be more proud of our staff and their dedication to financial transparency.”
The agency’s finance team has also been recognized with a certificate of excellence from the GFOA for their Comprehensive Annual Financial Review (CAFR) for the past two years in a row.
The Victor Valley Wastewater Reclamation Authority is an independent agency that
is equally governed by leaders from its member agencies, which include Apple Valley, Hesperia, Victorville, Oro Grande and Spring Valley Lake.
