Kish continues excellence in Financial Reporting

Kishwaukee College has been cited by Sikich, the college’s independent auditor, for a successful and clean financial audit for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2017.  A Comprehensive Annual Financial Report(CAFR) is compiled and submitted annually by Kishwaukee College. The College’s CAFR will be submitted to the Government Finance Officers Association of the U.S. and Canada (GFOA) for review.

Kishwaukee College has a history of award winning CAFRs and has received the Certificate of Achievement in Financial Reporting award from the GFOA every year since 2012 when the College first submitted a CAFR. Kevin Fuss, Vice President of Administration, and Jill Hansen, Controller, compiled the FY2017 CAFR. Hansen stated, “The CAFR goes beyond the minimum financial reporting requirements to improve transparency for the public as they evaluate the economic condition of the College.”

Sikich has stated that the Kishwaukee College financial audit was one of the best they have evaluated this year. Bob Johnson, Chair of the Kishwaukee College Board of Trustees, stated, “This is one of the cleanest audits I have observed during my 13 years as a Kish Trustee. The efforts of both Kevin and Jill to ensure fiscal stability and transparency for the residents of our district are greatly appreciated.”
