Office of Karen E. Rushing, Clerk of the Circuit Court and County Comptroller, Sarasota County, Florida 

The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) presents Sarasota Clerk and Comptroller Karen E. Rushing two awards for fiscal year 2018 financial publications.

The Sarasota County Clerk and Comptroller is proud to receive GFOA’s Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting for the 2018 edition of the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR). Known as the highest form of recognition in governmental accounting and financial reporting, achieving this recognition is a significant accomplishment by a government entity and its management. The Sarasota CAFR was judged as meeting the high standards of the program, including demonstrating a constructive "spirit of full disclosure" that clearly communicates Sarasota’s financial story.

The CAFR has been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles as required by Florida Statute 218.32. This report provides a detailed view into the financial results and position of Sarasota County, FL.

The Clerk and Comptroller also received the Award for Outstanding Achievement in Popular Annual Financial Reporting from GFOA’s PAFR Program for the 2018 edition of the FY2018 IMPACT Report. A full-color resource packed with useful information and beautiful photos of Sarasota County, this report gives citizens a look at revenues, and how county dollars were managed and spent during the fiscal year.

These and other county financial and performance reports can be found on SarasotaClerk.com.
