For the 11th consecutive year, the Missouri Lottery’s comprehensive annual financial report (CAFR) has received the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) of the United States and Canada – the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting.
"We’re honored to continue receiving this kind of recognition," said May Scheve Reardon, executive director for the Missouri Lottery. "We’re here to provide revenue for public education, so we take our responsibility to provide a true and transparent account of our operations very seriously. Our chief financial officer, Judy Gehrke, and her staff work hard to make sure our CAFR meets those expectations.”
The Lottery’s comprehensive annual financial report for fiscal year 2010 was judged by an impartial panel to meet the GFOA’s high standards, including demonstrating a “spirit of full disclosure” to clearly communicate its financial story.
The GFOA is a non-profit professional association serving approximately 17,500 government finance professionals with offices in Chicago and Washington, D.C.
