The Gahanna-Jefferson financial team was recognized for their hard work with a rather prestigious award from the State of Ohio Auditor’s Office. The Gahanna-Jefferson treasurer’s department was one of a small number of public entities in the state who qualify for this recognition, known as the Auditor of the State Award with Distinction.

This is the highest award that can be received, and reflects a clean audit report on behalf of the district. The office audits approximately 5,800 public entities each year.

“Our department works diligently to maintain excellent record-keeping and high levels of internal controls to continue to attain clean audits from the Ohio Auditor of State,” said Julio Valladares, treasurer, Gahanna-Jefferson Public Schools. “Due to those efforts, we are pleased to hear that our district has earned this recognition.”

Entities that receive the award meet the following criteria of a “clean” audit report:
  • The entity must file timely financial reports with the Auditor of State’s office in the form of a CAFR (Comprehensive Annual Financial Report);
  • The audit report does not contain any findings for recovery, material citations, material weaknesses, significant deficiencies, Single Audit findings or questioned costs;
  • The entity’s management letter contains no comments related to:
    • Ethics referrals
    • Questioned costs less than $10,000
    • Lack of timely report submission
    • Reconciliation
    • Failure to obtain a timely Single Audit
    • Findings for recovery less than $100
    • Public meetings or public records
