OCERS Finance Team with recent awards received

We’re thrilled to announce that our Finance Department has secured three prestigious awards earlier this year.

GFOA Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting:

The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) has awarded the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting to Orange County Employees Retirement System for its annual comprehensive financial report for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022.

The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management.

American Advertising Awards Recognition:

The American Advertising Awards acknowledged OCERS’ Annual Comprehensive Financial Reports for 2020 and 2021, a collaboration with Spencer Lewis Group, an Inland Empire-based graphic design firm. The report for 2020, titled “75th – An Anniversary Like No Other,” earned the American Advertising Bronze Award, while the 2021 report, titled “Charting the Course,” secured the American Advertising Silver Award. These achievements highlight the department’s commitment to producing standout financial reports.

We extend our congratulations to the Finance Department, under the leadership of Director of Finance, Tracy Bowman, for these well-deserved achievements. The team’s hard work, attention to detail, and commitment to excellence have not gone unnoticed, making us proud to have such a talented and dedicated team.
