Humble ISD Finance Department receives Distinguished Budget Presentation Award
The Government Finance Officers Association of the
United States and Canada (GFOA) is pleased to
announce that Humble ISD has received the GFOA’s
Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for its budget.
The award represents a significant achievement by the
entity, according to information provided by the GFOA.
In order to receive the budget award, Humble ISD had
to satisfy nationally recognized guidelines for effective
budget presentation. These guidelines are designed to
assess how well an entity’s budget serves as a policy
document, a financial plan, an operations guide and a
communications device. Budget documents must be
rated proficient in all four categories, and the fourteen
mandatory criteria within those categories, to receive the award. Humble ISD has received the
GFOA’s Distinguished Budget Presentation Award since 2011.
“When a Distinguished Budget Presentation Award is granted to an entity, a Certificate of
Recognition for Budget Presentation is also presented to the individual or department
designated as being primarily responsible for its having achieved the award,” said Stephen J.
Gauthier, Director of the Technical Services Center for the GFAO. “This has been presented to
Marilyn Farrell, Director of Budget.”
The Government Finance Officers Association is a nonprofit professional association serving
nearly 18,000 government finance professionals throughout North America. The GFOA’s

award letter to Humble ISD. “Through your example, we hope that other entities will be
encouraged to achieve excellence in budgeting.
