Goochland County has been awarded the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA).

This award was received for the fifth year in a row, this time for the County’s Fiscal Year 2017 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR).  It represents the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management.


“Attainment of the Certificate of Achievement is a noteworthy accomplishment, not all counties get recognized with this award,” noted County Administrator John A. Budesky, “it demonstrates Goochland County’s ongoing efforts of transparency.”


Judged by an impartial panel, the FY 2017 CAFR meets high standards, which include demonstrating a constructive “spirit of full disclosure” to clearly communicate its financial story and motivate potential users and user groups to read the CAFR. The FY 2017 CAFR can be found on the County’s website ( under annual audits. 


Mr. Budesky went on to add, “This recognition also recognizes the combined efforts of our school, agency, and constitutional partners in assuring financial excellence for Goochland County.”  Completion of the FY 2017 CAFR was truly a team effort involving the entire County staff and in particular the Treasurer and staff of the Treasurer’s Office, the Commissioner of Revenue, the School Finance Department, Social Services, and the Department of Financial Services.


The Goochland County Board of Supervisors announced this latest recognition at their July 3, 2018 Board Meeting, congratulating everyone involved, especially the Financial Services  team.
