Congratulations to our CFO Brittany Dortch, her staff and the School Board on receiving multiple financial reporting awards in recent weeks.
Ms. Dortch’s work has earned ASBO International’s FY 2016 Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting Award (COE). This is Portsmouth’s 11th year participating in the program as a sign of our continuing commitment to fiscal integrity.
Additionally, Ms. Dortch earned an Award of Financial Reporting Achievement by the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA). According to the organization’s website, the award encourages local governments “to go beyond the minimum requirements of generally accepted accounting principles to prepare comprehensive annual financial reports that evidence the spirit of transparency and full disclosure."
The award recognizes individual governments that succeed in achieving that goal.
