The Association of School Business Official International (ASBO) is proud to recognize the School District of Volusia County for excellence in budget presentation with the Meritorious Budget Award (MBA) for the 2018-2019 budget year. ASBO International's MBA and Pathway to the MBA promote and recognize best budget presentation practices in school districts.
Participants submit their applications and budget documents to a panel of school financial professionals who review the materials for compliance with the MBA Criteria Checklist and other requirements and provide expert feedback that districts can use to improve their budget documents. Districts that successfully demonstrate they have met the necessary program requirements may earn either the MBA or Pathway to the MBA, an introductory program that allows districts to ease into full MBA compliance.
"The budget team met very stringent requirements to produce a document that provides comprehensive supplemental information in addition to the basic adopted budget. I thank and congratulate budget staff for their commitment to fiscal integrity. This has been the standard the department has set for more than 17 straight years" stated Deb Muller, Volusia County Schools chief financial officer.
