Awards

A World-Class Organization

The Clerk & Comptroller's office is a recipient of the Governor's Sterling Award for Organizational Performance Excellence.

Employees in the Clerk & Comptroller's office are dedicated public servants who believe we can transform government, making it more accessible, accountable and efficient for every customer and taxpayer.

Our employees' vision for the Clerk & Comptroller's office is:

To be recognized as the world-class leader in customer service, employee satisfaction and standards of excellence.

We measure our success on the journey to being a world-class organization by seeking rigorous assessments of our practices by esteemed organizations such as the Florida Sterling Council, the Government Finance Officers AssociationStandard & Poor’s and others.

A world-class organization is never satisfied with the status quo. We use the valuable feedback we receive from these assessments to make improvements. Also, we actively benchmark with high performing public and private sector organizations to identify and implement best practices in areas such as leadership, strategic planning, customer service, process improvement and employee satisfaction.
