Annual Comprehensive Financial Reports (ACFRs) are produced to provide citizens, Board Supervisors, County staff, bondholders and the general public with useful information about the County’s operations and financial position.
These reports are prepared by the County’s Finance Department in accordance with standards prescribed by the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB), the Government Financial Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) and other rule-making bodies. The County is responsible for the accuracy, completeness and fairness of the data presented. The County’s external, independent audit firm, performs and issues an opinion on the financial statements.
The County has been awarded the GFOA Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting since 2005. The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition for excellence in state and local government financial reporting. In order to be awarded a Certificate of Achievement, the county must publish an easily readable and efficiently organized annual comprehensive financial report. The report must satisfy both Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) and applicable legal requirements. The Certificate is only applicable for one year. Each year the Finance staff strive to maintain and achieve this high honor and submit the Annual Comprehensive Financial Reports to the GFOA award program.
