Escalon Times - - NEWS -

San Joaquin Re­gional Tran­sit Dis­trict (RTD) has been rec­og­nized with two na­tional awards.

The Gov­ern­ment Fi­nance Of­fi­cers As­so­ci­a­tion of the United States and Canada (GFOA) awarded RTD with the Cer­tifi­cate of Achieve­ment for Ex­cel­lence in Fi­nan­cial Re­port­ing for its Com­pre­hen­sive An­nual Fi­nan­cial Re­port (CAFR). Not only is this Cer­tifi­cate of Achieve­ment the high­est form of recog­ni­tion in the area of gov­ern­men­tal ac­count­ing and fi­nan­cial re­port­ing, but this year marks 15 con­sec­u­tive years in which RTD has won the GFOA award.

In ad­di­tion to fi­nan­cial health, the Amer­i­can Heart As­so­ci­a­tion 2018 Work­place Health Achieve­ment In­dex an­nounced that RTD reached Bronze level recog­ni­tion for tak­ing sig­nif­i­cant steps to build a cul­ture of health in the work­place. The Work­place Health Achieve­ment In­dex rec­og­nizes or­ga­ni­za­tions for ef­forts in im­ple­ment­ing qual­ity em­ployee health pro­grams in the work­place; it as­sesses the qual­ity, com­pre­hen­sive­ness, and ef­fec­tive­ness of work­place health pro­grams and the heart health of em­ploy­ees. “We wanted to cre­ate a cul­ture ob­sessed with fi­nan­cial sus­tain­abil­ity, and a cul­ture ob­sessed with well­ness,” said RTD Gen­eral Man­ager/ CEO Donna DeMartino. “I’m proud to see RTD rec­og­nized in this way.”
