Distinguished Budget Presentation Program
The Assistant City Administrator with assistance from the Director of Finance prepares a comprehensive Budget Publication that has been awarded a Certificate of Recognition for Distinguished Budget Presentation from the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA). FY2014 and FY2015 Budget Book Publications have been awarded this distinct honor. FY2016 has been submitted for review. Des Peres is one of only a few cities in the State of Missouri to achieve this recognition.

The GFOA established the Distinguished Budget Presentation Awards Program (Budget Awards Program) in 1984 to encourage and assist state and local governments to prepare budget documents of the very highest quality that reflect both the guidelines established by the National Advisory Council on State and Local Budgeting and the GFOA's best practices on budgeting and then to recognize individual governments that succeed in achieving that goal.

Documents submitted to the Budget Awards Program are reviewed by selected members of the GFOA professional staff and by outside reviewers with experience in public-sector budgeting. This award is the highest form of recognition in governmental budgeting.
