The FGFOA is proud to present its ACE (Advance Commitment to Excellence) Awards.
The FGFOA Board of Directors understands the importance of innovation in government. There are many examples across our membership of outstanding work that is being done on a daily basis. In an effort to share these stories, celebrate successes and learn from each other, the Board has created the ACE Awards. This year, we are highlighting two categories.
• Award #1 – Website Transparency
• Award #2 - Process Improvement
The project should have been implemented in the last eighteen months. All current FGFOA member agencies are eligible to apply.
Winners will be announced at the Tuesday, June 16, 2015 Annual Business Luncheon, Diplomat Resort, Hollywood, Florida.
Please submit your application by the deadline of March 31, 2015.
