Coming June 1, 2020! GFOA Awards Management System

GFOA’s Award Management System (AMS) will launch on June 1, 2020.  The AMS will automate the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting (CAFR) program, allowing CAFR applicants to apply, pay CAFR fees, check application status and receive award documents, all electronically.

A free training webinar on how to use the AMS will be offered the week of May 26th. We will post information about the webinar on this page in mid-May. Current CAFR agencies will receive an email invitation with the webinar details. You will also be able to access the webinar recording on our website if you are unable to attend the live session.

Please note, that once the AMS is live, we will no longer accept email applications. All CAFRs must be submitted using the AMS.
