Budget Awards Program Instructions and Applications

The CSMFO Professional Standards and Recognition Committee is proud to announce that the new award management software, Award Force, is ready to accept applications!

Submit Today!

In order to submit an award application, CSMFO members must be pre-registered in the software.  If you are a prior year applicant and were identified as the contact person for your local government, you are registered and should have already received information from Award Force regarding how to access the software.  Members not meeting this criteria who provided Craig Boyer with their contact information were also registered for the software.

If you did not receive information from Award Force on how to access the software as an applicant, please send a message the Recognition Committee Chair at recognition.chair@csmfo.org.

Sample Documents & Guidelines

To aid CSMFO members in the budget awards process the committee has prepared a detailed set of review guidelines and sample documents and a detailed reviewer’s guide. In addition, the committee has provided a listing of the award criteria that are used to evaluate operating budget and capital budget.
