The Finance Department of the Administrator/Controllers office provides accounting, accounts payable and receivable, payroll, and budgetary services for the departments of the County.
A system of accounts is maintained to accumulate, classify and report on the financial activities of the County departments. The Department monitors the County’s internal controls to ensure that the financial records are accurate and that County policies are being followed and serves as the liaison between the County and various outside fiscal agencies including independent auditors, Michigan Department of Treasury and many other State and Federal agencies.
The annual budget is governed by the provisions of the Michigan Uniform Budgeting and Accounting Act (Public Act 621 of 1978, as amended). The Department is responsible for the creation, adoption and monitoring of the annual budget.
State statutes and the Single Audit Act of 1996 require an annual audit by independent Certified Public Accountants. The Comprehensive Annual Financial Report is issued and available in this office.
The County has received the Certificate of Achievement from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) for the last fourteen years (received annually from 1996 to 2009). The Certificate of Achievement is a prestigious national award recognizing conformance with the highest standards for preparation of state and local governmental financial reports.
