TJC has received the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting by the Government Finance Officers Association for its comprehensive annual financial report.
The certificate is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, and this marks the 27th consecutive year TJC has earned this distinction.
“It is an honor to once again receive this award,” said Sarah Van Cleef, TJC chief financial officer and vice president for financial and administrative affairs.
“TJC is committed to financial transparency; and by adhering to the guidelines for the certificate, the College provides the community with a comprehensive annual financial report that is of the highest standards.”
Van Cleef and Dr. Kim Laird, TJC executive director of business services, were recognized for the award during Thursday’s regular meeting of the TJC Board of Trustees.
The report is judged by an impartial panel to meet the high standards of the program, including demonstrating a constructive “spirit of full disclosure” to clearly communicate its financial story and motivate potential users and user groups to read the report.
