Union Finance Division Wins Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting

The Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO) is proud to recognize Union Public Schools for excellence in budget presentation with the Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting (COE).  This is the 28th year in a row that Union has won this honor.

“I am very pleased to announce Union Public School has been awarded the ASBO International Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting. It is the highest recognition for a school district offered by ASBO, recognizing significant achievement in school system financial reporting,” said Dr. Trish Williams, Union’s Chief Financial Officer, who credits the team of administrators and staff working in the Finance Division for making the honor possible.
ASBO International’s COE recognizes districts that have met the program’s high standards for financial reporting and transparency. The school district earned the Certificate of Excellence for its Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) for the fiscal year ended 2019.  

In March, the Union Finance Division also received ASBO’s Pathway to the Meritorious Budget Award (MBA) for the 2019–2020 budget year, the 2nd consecutive year that Union has won this particular award.
“The COE’s mission is to promote and recognize excellence in financial reporting, specifically through a district’s CAFR,” ASBO International Executive Director David Lewis says. “The CAFR informs stakeholders about the financial and economic state of the district, making it an important communications tool for building trust and engaging with the school community.”

By participating in the COE program, school districts demonstrate their commitment to financial transparency. Applicants submit their CAFR for review by a team of financial professionals, who provide feedback to improve future documents. If the CAFR meets the requirements of the program, the document may receive the Certificate of Excellence. A district’s participation in the COE program can facilitate bond rating and continuing bond disclosure processes.

The COE is proudly sponsored by ASBO International Strategic Partner American Fidelity.
