Sarasota Clerk and Comptroller Honored with Two Financial Publication Awards for FY2018
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).

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.
