The Comprehensive Annual Financial Report ("CAFR") is an all-encompassing audited financial report for Erie County as a whole. The CAFR is prepared in conformance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"). It includes audited financial statements for all operations and component units, narrative information and analyses, updated debt disclosures, multi-year statistical trend information, and reports and opinions from the County's independent auditor. This report serves to fulfill the County's legal requirement for a financial audit and countywide financial report for the fiscal year.
Quarterly reports on financial conditions are a standard practice in the private sector and have become the norm for Erie County. In 2006, the comptroller's office began issuing comprehensive and detailed quarterly reports on Erie County's finances. These reports have helped the county executive, Legislature, Erie County Fiscal Stability Authority and Wall Street better understand the issues facing Erie County.
