Lansing, Mich. – (Jan. 12, 2022) The Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) recently announced that Lansing Community College has received the GFOA’s Award for Outstanding Achievement in Popular Annual Financial Reporting (PAFR award).
A PAFR extracts information from an organization’s annual comprehensive financial report to produce a summarized, shorter version designed to be readily accessible and easily understandable to the general public and other interested parties who do not have a background in public finance.
This award represents a significant achievement for the College. In order to be eligible for the PAFR award, LCC has to submit its comprehensive annual financial report to GFOA’s Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting Program and receive the certificate for the current fiscal year. Each eligible report is reviewed by judges who evaluate the report based on the following categories: reader appeal, understandability, distribution methods, creativity and other elements.
“This long-standing recognition for financial reporting is never routine. It’s a big deal,” said LCC President Steve Robinson. “Communication about finances is as important as the accounting itself; this marks a huge achievement for our finance professionals at LCC.”
