The Government Finance Officers Association recently awarded the City of Menlo Park the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting for its comprehensive annual financial report. The certificate 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.

Menlo Park’s comprehensive annual financial report, or CAFR, was reviewed and judged by an impartial panel to meet the high standards of the program including demonstrating a constructive “spirit of full disclosure” to clearly communicate its financial story and motivate potential users and user groups to read the CAFR. For questions, please contact the Finance Division.

The Government Finance Officers Association is a nonprofit professional association serving approximately 17,500 government finance professionals
