For the 13th consecutive year, BSU earned a Certificate of Achievement for its annual comprehensive financial report.
“The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management,” said Michele Mark Levine, the director of technical services for the Government Finance Officers Association. The association began awarding certificates in 1945 to encourage governments to develop reports that exceed minimum accounting standards and promote transparency.
The most recent recognition is for the report for the fiscal year that ended June 30, 2020. BSU is the only higher education institution in Massachusetts to receive the award for that fiscal year and is among approximately two-dozen Bay State municipalities and agencies earning a certificate.
