APRIL 28, 2022 - City of Allen continues its winning streak! The Government Financial Officers Association (GFOA) has awarded the City of Allen the award for Outstanding Achievement for the Popular Annual Financial Report (PAFR) and the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence of the Annual Comprehensive Financial Report (ACFR) for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2020.

The GFOA administers the most prestigious national award program for governmental accounting and financial reporting. The Annual Comprehensive Financial Report has been judged by an impartial panel to meet the high standards of the program, which includes demonstrating a constructive "spirit of full disclosure" to clearly communicate its financial story and motivate potential users and user groups to read the report.

The Certificate of Achievement 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.

As part of its commitment to financial transparency and accountability, the City of Allen prepares a Popular Annual Financial Report to extract and convey information from the Annual Comprehensive Financial Report in a condense and easily understood format. It provides an overview of the City’s audited financial position, local taxing information and economic climate.
