CAFR (Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports)

Home > ... > Reports > CAFR
The Administrative Services Department incorporates the City's 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:

Introductory Section - containing a letter of transmittal, a certificate of achievement award, and a listing of key officials and staff. 

Financial Section - containing an 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. 

The MD&A, which begins on Page 5 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
