PAFR AwardFor the first time ever, the City of Columbia has received the GFOA Award for Outstanding Achievement in Popular Annual Financial Reporting (PAFR Award) by the Government Finance Officers Association. 

According to City of Columbia's Assistant City Manager/CFO Thad Jablonski, the PAFR is high-quality financial reporting and a value add because it makes annual financial reporting more accessible to officials, citizens, businesses, partner agencies and other stakeholders. Ultimately, this best practice increases transparency and accountability and allows citizens to know that their municipal government conducts business with integrity according to best practices.

The City also received the Certificate of Achievement for the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) for the 20th consecutive year.

Congratulations to Thad and his staff in the Finance and City Recorder's Departments!
