Broward County's Board of County Commissioners has established a goal for "Fiscally Sustainable and Transparent Government."
The Accounting Division supports and is committed to this important Commission goal. We run our business as a business, and always strive to give our customers "Our Best. Nothing Less.”
The Accounting Division, which is part of the Finance and Administrative Services Department, maintains the County’s financial records, produces financial reports, processes payroll for County employees and processes all vendor invoices for payment.
We provide informative and relevant financial information for the residents of Broward County, Broward County Board of County Commissioners, other governmental agencies, investors, creditors and other concerned readers, all of whom make social and economic decisions.
Accounting Division employees are committed to the highest standards in governmental accounting and financial reporting. For 28 consecutive years, the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) has awarded Broward County a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting for its Comprehensive Annual Financial Report. In order to be considered for this prestigious award, a government must publish an easily readable and efficiently organized comprehensive annual financial report, that satisfies both generally accepted accounting principles and applicable legal requirements.
