MSD’s Accounting Division has once again received the annual Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA). This is the 26th consecutive year the District has received this prestigious award. Less than 8% of the government entities considered for this award have achieved this milestone.
The GFOA is a nonprofit association of 18,000 government financial professionals across the United States. In order to receive the award, a government entity must satisfy stringent nationally recognized reporting guidelines and an impartial review by a panel of certified public accountants selected by GFOA. The award represents the highest available form of recognition for governmental financial reporting.
The Engineering Department received two additional awards this year for the Coldwater Wet Weather Storage Facility Tank A, totaling three awards received for the tank. MSD was awarded the National Recognition Award, as well as the Engineering Excellence Award, from the American Council of Engineering Companies of Missouri. The Council also bestowed both the National Recognition Award, and the Engineering Excellence Award on the Wenneker Treebrook Storm Channel Improvements. In addition, the Mechanical Contractors Association of Eastern Missouri awarded MSD the Outstanding Mechanical Installation for Process Piping for the Caulks Creek “A” Phase 5 Project.
