OCC receives national awards for financial management reporting

Oakland Community College’s financial team is best in class, again.

Comprehensive Annual Financial ReportFor the fourth year in a year, the Government Finance Officers Association awarded OCC with a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting for its Comprehensive Annual Financial Report. The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a governmental entity and its management.

OCC is one of only two community colleges in Michigan to earn this honor.

In addition, the GFOA awarded OCC’s Popular Annual Financial Report with an Award for Outstanding Achievement.

“Award-winning financial documentation and award-winning financial team demonstrate the hard work and excellence puts OCC on sound financial footing,” OCC Chancellor Peter Provenzano said. “We believe in financial transparency and financial stability as careful stewards of the resources entrusted to us by our community. These awards and documents are testament to that commitment.”

Provenzano noted very few community colleges across the country have received the GFOA awards of excellence.


“The College’s Board of Trustees, faculty and staff know OCC provides exceptional value for students seeking a quality post-secondary education,” he said. “These reports underscore that value and our accountability to the community we serve.”
