The City of Becker has an audit performed annually by an independent certified public accounting (CPA) firm as required by state law. The firm determines whether the city has been following generally accepted accounting practices and tests transactions to verify that procedures have been followed properly. The auditors have given the city an unqualified opinion that our financial statements are an accurate reflection of the city’s financial health.
Starting in 2022, the Finance Department prepared an Annual Comprehensive Financial Report (ACFR). The City prepares the ACFR in accordance with guidelines established by the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA). This will be the first submission to GFOA for the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting award. To be awarded a certificate, the City must publish an easily readable and efficiently organized ACFR with contents conforming to program requirements, applicable compliance requirements and generally accepted accounting principles.
