San Mateo County Mosquito and Vector Control District has been awarded the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting by the Government Finance Officers Association after submitting its Fiscal Year 2018/2019 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (available at https://www.smcmvcd.org/cafr) for review. The Comprehensive Annual Financial Report was judged by an impartial panel to meet the high standards of the program.
The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment.

The certificate program encourages participating governments to provide information that is accessible and understandable to the public. It is awarded to agencies that have fully implemented the updated standards of the Government Accounting Standards Board and have received a clean financial audit.
“We’re thrilled to have achieved this award for the second year in a row”, said Richard Arrow, Finance Director at San Mateo County Mosquito and Vector Control District. “Transparency is a priority for our district and I’m very proud of our staff’s work.”
