MWA Recognized for Financial Reporting

Oct 23, 2017 by Chris Wood, Ph.D.

During its September Board Meeting, the MWA recognized the Authority’s Finance Department for receiving two industry honors from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA).

The MWA has received both the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting and the award for Outstanding Achievement in Popular Annual Financial Reporting. The former recognizes the quality of the Authority’s Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) for FY 2016, while the latter recognizes the Authority’s FY 2016 Popular Annual Financial Report (PAFR).

The Authority has received the Certificate of Achievement for its CAFR for 20 consecutive years. The MWA is among only 4.7% of eligible governments in the United States and Canada to receive this honor this year.

This year also marks the fifth straight year the MWA has been recognized with the Outstanding Achievement Award for its PAFR. This award also is selective in nature, as less than 0.5% of all eligible governments in the United States received this industry accolade this year. In addition, the Authority is one of only 13 entities in Georgia to be recognized in this way for its PAFR, and it’s the only utility among that select group.
