CAFR (Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports)
The Administrative Services Department incorporates the financial statements into a Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR), the purpose of which is to present an easily readable and organized report of the financial transactions of the City. A CAFR provides the users of government financial statements with a wide variety of information needed to help them evaluate the financial condition of the City.
The CAFR is composed of three main parts:
The MD&A, which begins on page 3 of the CAFR, provides an overview of the financial highlights for the fiscal year and a discussion of significant financial changes from the prior year.
- Introductory Section - containing letter of transmittal, certificate of achievement aware, and a listing of key officials and staff;
- Financial Section - containing auditors' report, management discussion and analysis (MD&A), government-wide or City-wide and fund level financial statements, explanatory notes to financial statements and supplemental schedules;
- Statistical Section - containing various financial, operating and demographic trend data to assist the reader in understanding the changes in the City over time.
