Annual Comprehensive Financial Report

The Annual Comprehensive Financial Report is the highest level of financial reporting by a governmental organization. The Program was established by the Governmental Finance Officers Association (GFOA) in 1945 to provide a more comprehensive and detailed illustration of a City’s financial condition.

In the State of Ohio, Cities are required to document what assets they have available and what liabilities they have incurred. Generally, this is accomplished through the preparation of General Purpose Financial Statements. Many governmental organizations have chosen to go above and beyond this process and instead to develop a the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report. The preparation of the report is totally at the discretion of the community.  Cities choosing to prepare the report in compliance with the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) and subsequently recognized by GFOA are awarded the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting for the preparation of their report. Since the year 2000, the City of Springdale has been honored with this distinguished and prestigious award. The City’s report is prepared in-house annually by the department.
