The award is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental budgeting, and the attainment of the award represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management.

When a Distinguished Budget Presentation Award is granted, a Certificate of Recognition for Budget Presentation is also presented to the individual responsible for having achieved the award. This has been presented to Melanie Freeman-Gruber, Budget Manager.
