The City of Pickerington has received the Auditor of State's "Award with Distinction" for outstanding commitment to the highest standards of financial reporting for the years 2005, 2006, and 2008 through 2018 due to the filing of the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) and having no audit citations.
The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) awarded a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting to the City of Pickerington for its CAFR for the year ended December 31, 2018. This was the fifteenth year the City had filed a CAFR and received this reward. In order to be awarded a Certificate of Achievement, a government must publish an easily readable and efficiently organized comprehensive annual financial report. This report must satisfy both generally accepted accounting principles and applicable legal requirements.
Additionally, the City received the Award for Outstanding Achievement in Popular Annual Financial Reporting from GFOA for the City's 2018 Citizen's Report, a condensed, more user-friendly financial report intended to provide highlights of the City's financial condition. 2018 was the eighth year the City completed the Popular Annual Financial Report and received this prestigious award.
