Financial Reporting

Financial management carries with it accountability responsibilities. Citizens, as well as senior levels of government, need to be provided with accounting information that indicates that the intended services have been adequately delivered, that proper controls are in place and that prescribed procedures have been followed. It is here that audits and the auditing process provide outside monitoring as added protection for the public interest.

Audited Financial Statements

The staff organization must record details of expenditures using accepted accounting practices. The external auditor examines these and reports to council, citizens and senior levels of government on how adequately funds are used for the purposes intended. The auditor's statement thus comprises a formal accountability report.
