IOFM Department of the Month Award Program


IOFM has been setting the standard for excellence in the financial operations professions for decades. As part of our mission to raise the profiles of the teams performing these functions, we continually seek to create opportunities to recognize noteworthy achievements and high performance in financial operations. 

During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen extraordinary and innovative efforts by financial operations departments to keep businesses operating as usual and adapt to the "new normal." It has become increasingly evident how essential these functions are to companies.

Here at IOFM, we believe that now more than ever, our community deserves recognition. 

The IOFM Department of the Month Award Program will highlight one financial operations department each month for their best-in-class performance. Each department will be awarded $10 Amazon gift cards for each team member ($100 max) and will be honored on

Nomination Criteria & Rules

The nomination form is located below. You can submit as many nominations as you want, even if it's for the same department. Your nominations will never expire, so if your submission is not chosen the month after you submit, it is still eligible to be chosen subsequent months. (However, keep in mind that top-of-mind relevancy is part of how we will pick honorees, so you are encouraged to re-submit!)     

In order to be eligible, the department's primary responsiblities must include AP, P2P, AR or O2C, and the department must have demonstrated best-in-class status through outstanding efforts as a team. What does this mean? It is purposefully broad it could be anything from going above and beyond to improve processes/efficiency, innovating solutions in the face of unprecedented challenges, implementing best practices, demonstrating collaboration and/or leadership. 

A new winner will be published on at the beginning of every month and notified by email!
