FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CLEVELAND, WI –
Lakeshore Technical College has been awarded the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) for the fifteenth consecutive year.Â
In order to receive the budget award, LTC had to satisfy nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation.Â Â These guidelines are designed to assess how well an entity’s budget serves as a policy document, a financial plan, an operations guide and a communications device.Â Â Budget documents also had to be rated “proficient” in all four categories, and the fourteen mandatory criteria within those categories, to receive the award.
The College earned the recognition for its current budget which was prepared by the Financial Services department at LTC.
“This award recognizes LTC’s accountability and responsibility to the taxpayers in our district” said LTC President Mike Lanser.Â
The Distinguished Budget Presentation Award is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management to improve the quality of budgeting and provide an excellent example for other governments throughout North America.Â
The Government Finance Officers Association is a nonprofit professional association serving over 17,800 government finance professionals throughout North America.Â Â The GFOA’s Distinguished Budget Presentation Awards Program is the only national awards program in governmental budgeting.Â
