As an Assistant Treasurer we used PFR for many years as a great resource not only for information, but cash-flow modeling, “what-if?” scenarios for future projection purposes, revenue and expenditure analysis, and most of all the impressive five-year forecasting software they have developed. After becoming a Treasurer in January, Ernie and Debra were one of my first calls. The resources and expertise of PFR have proven invaluable to our district in planning and aligning our five-year forecast with our district goals and plans.

PFR provides excellent presentations in order to effectively communicate our districts financial position to our board, employees and citizens within our community. The amount of resources at the state and local level that PFR stays current on, are such an asset to our administrative team for our planning process. With constant changes in state funding, changes in laws that affect revenue and expenditures, having PFR as a resource, they keep us up-to-date on how changes will affect our district individually in order for us to make critical decisions. I would recommend PFR and their software to any school district as they are an excellent resource with a vast knowledge base at all levels.
