Financial reports are used to compare actual financial results with the legally adopted budget, to assess financial condition and results of operation, to determine compliance with finance related laws, rules and regulations, and to evaluate efficiency and effectiveness. Accounting records are compiled at year-end for review by our independent accounting firm, Plante & Moran, in preparation for the annual audit.
