For their outstanding work in preparing the budget biennium, the Accounting and Budget Department was proudly bestowed the association’s Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for the 2018/2019 fiscal year, the 15th consecutive time and 18th time overall Bernalillo County has received this honor.

The office received the award, the highest honor in governmental budgeting, beside 1,600 agencies across North America.

And for the first time, the Accounting and Budget Office also received the Special Performance Measures Recognition for its budget and recognizing the use of best practices in financial assessment, including measures that are clear, relevant, reliable and well-communicated.
