City of Cambridge receives Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for 2021 Budget

Posted on Thursday November 25, 2021

Along with the release of the 2022 Draft Budget earlier this week, the City of Cambridge was pleased to be recognized by the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) for the 2021 Budget, receiving the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for the second consecutive year.

The award reflects the City’s commitment to meeting the highest principles of governmental budgeting. In order to receive the budget award, the City had to satisfy nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation and provide a document that excelled as a financial plan, operations guide, policy document, and communication tool. Recipients of this award are noted by the GFOA as organizations who are pioneering efforts to improve the quality of budgeting and act as examples for other governments throughout North America.

The City of Cambridge is committed to delivering public value and to the responsible management of financial resources, ensuring transparency and accountability. This award recognizes that commitment and reflects the strategic actions set out by the City’s Strategic Plan, Cambridge Connected.
