Auditor’s Office annual financial report earns top marks from professional association

The international Government Finance Officers Association has recognized the Clark County Auditor’s Office with a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting for its 2016 comprehensive annual financial report. The certificate is the highest recognition in governmental accounting and financial reporting, the Chicago-based association said announcing the recognition late last month. The certification also brings an Award of Financial Reporting Achievement for the Auditor’s Office. “We hope your example will encourage other government officials in their efforts to achieve and maintain an appropriate standard of excellence in financial reporting,” Michele Mark Levine, an association director, wrote in a letter to Auditor Greg Kimsey (in photo).
