In addition to the Certificate of Achievement, GFOA has also given the Award for Outstanding Achievement in Popular Annual Financial Reporting to OPERS for the Popular Annual Financial Report for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011. A government unit must publish a popular annual financial report whose contents conform to program standards of creativity, presentation, understand ability and reader appeal. This was the fifth consecutive year OPERS received this award.
The Certificate of Achievement and Award for Outstanding Achievement in Popular Annual Financial Reporting are valid for a period of one year only. We believe our current reports continue to meet award requirements and are submitting them to GFOA to determine their eligibility.
