Request Extension

A government may request a 30-day extension of the submission deadline for either the Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting program or the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award program by completing the form below. When a deadline falls on a weekend or holiday the submission is due the next business day. If you have any questions, please contact the GFOA office at 312-977-9700.

Please note: the Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting program policy prohibits granting an extension in two consecutive years for essentially the same reason.

When processed a confirmation will be sent by email.

Please indicate the award program in which you are requesting an extension.
