Chicagoland’s DuPage Airport Authority (DAA) has earned an award for its 2018 budget from the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA), a national professional group focused on advancing excellence in state and local government financial management.
To earn the award, DAA—which manages an office park and golf course in addition to the dedicated general aviation airport—had to satisfy several nationally recognized guidelines, designed to assess how well an entity’s current budget serves as a policy document, financial plan, operations guide, and communications device. DAA’s budget documents were rated as proficient in all four categories, in addition to meeting 14 additional mandatory criteria.
“We are honored the national GFOA organization has chosen to recognize our budget planning and transparency,” said authority chairman Stephen Davis. “DAA operates as a fiscally responsible organization, enabling us to continuously expand and innovate our first-class service customers have come to expect at each of our three business operations: the DuPage Airport, DuPage Business Center, and Prairie Landing Golf Club.”
