Indy Library Cited for Excellence in Financial Reporting

For the 28th consecutive year, The Indianapolis Public Library has received the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting.

The Library has received the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) for its comprehensive annual financial report (CAFR).

“This recognition represents a significant accomplishment by the Library’s management and accounting team,” said Joanne M. Sanders, President of the IndyPL Board of Trustees. “That the Library has been honored for so many years reflects its ongoing commitment to the highest standard of fiscal responsibility to Marion County residents.”

The Library’s CAFR was judged by an impartial panel to meet the high standards of the reporting program, demonstrating a constructive “spirit of full disclosure” to clearly communicate the Library’s financial story and motivating potential users and user groups to read the CAFR.

The GFOA is a non-profit professional association serving approximately 17,500 government finance professionals with offices in Chicago, IL and Washington, D.C.
