MOHAVE COUNTY – Mohave Community College Business Services employees were just awarded the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting. This is the 11th consecutive year the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) honored the MCC team with this award of excellence.  

An impartial panel of experts for the GFOA reviewed the Annual Comprehensive Financial Report for fiscal year 2022 and determined that it met the high standards set by the organization, which include full disclosure and transparency while presenting data in a format that is easy to comprehend. 

“I’m very proud of the Business Services team for receiving the Excellence in Financial Reporting award.  The team’s dedication to accuracy and transparency is evident in everything they do and the award is well deserved,” said Linda Green, MCC Chief Financial Officer. 

Green said receiving this award is evidence that MCC strongly believes in supporting students and communities by following strong financial management procedures. 

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. 

The 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.
