The Finance Department is responsible for the financial management of County resources, and maintaining and enforcing financial policies, as adopted by the Board of Supervisors (BOS). There are four divisions within the Finance Department: Accounting, Budget, Grants Management and Procurement.
The primary functions performed by those four divisions include accounting, payroll, financial reporting, preparation of annual budgets and the Capital Improvement Plan (CIP). Finance staff also manages the County’s debt issuances including Utilities and Schools, provides grants management, procurement of goods and services, coordinates audit and financial advisory services, and risk management.
Finance serves as staff to the Finance Committee, which reviews all items of a financial nature requiring BOS approval, including budget amendments, supplemental appropriations, and grant applications and acceptance. The Committee consists of two BOS members, Commissioner of Revenue, Treasurer, Deputy County Administrator, and Chief Financial Officer.
