In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...

WRD Earns Highest Government Finance Officers Association Award

LAKEWOOD, Calif., Dec. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- For the second year in a row, the Water Replenishment District of Southern California (WRD) has been recognized by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) and awarded GFOA's highest accolade for governmental budgeting with the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for fiscal year 2012-13.

This award reflects the commitment of the Board of Directors and staff to meet the highest principles of government budgeting, and is presented to WRD for its annual budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2012. In order to receive this award, a government agency must publish a budget document that meets stringent guidelines designed to assess how well an entity's budget serves as:

  • A policy document
  • A financial plan
  • An operations guide
  • A communications device

A Budget document must be rated "proficient" in all four categories, and satisfy the 14 mandatory criteria within those categories to receive the award.

Since 2005, WRD's Finance Department has garnered more than 18 national and state awards for its exceptional finance and budgetary practices.

"This award is continued recognition of WRD's sound and prudent budgetary practices," said Albert Robles, President of WRD. "It exemplifies the District's efforts in providing the public with transparency and clarity in financial documentation."

In an effort to increase the District's financial transparency and public accountability, the WRD Board of Directors approved the establishment of the District's Audit & Budget Advisory Committee (ABAC). As a direct result of this Board action, WRD has further increased its financial accountability and transparency with the public, as well as having its efforts recognized by the highly regarded GFOA. 

"WRD is very proud of the way it goes about our rate-setting and budget process.  In the last eight years, we have won 18 awards from state and national public finance associations for the clarity of our financial documents and transparency of our budgeting process.  We are one of only 5 water districts in the entire state to receive the Distinguished Budget Award from the Government Finance Officers Association and the Excellence in Budgeting Award from the California Society of Municipal Finance Officers," said President Robles.

The Government Finance Officers Association is a nonprofit professional organization serving more than 17,000 government finance professionals throughout North America. The GFOA's Distinguished Budget Presentation Awards Program is the only national awards program in governmental budgeting.

The Water Replenishment District of Southern California is the regional groundwater management agency that protects and preserves the quantity and quality of groundwater for two of the most utilized urban basins in the State of California. The service area is home to over ten percent of California's population residing in 43 cities in southern Los Angeles County. WRD is governed by a publicly elected Board of Directors which includes Willard H. Murray, Jr., Robert Katherman, Lillian Kawasaki, Sergio Calderon, and Albert Robles.
