Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports (CAFR)

Each year, CBJ presents a comprehensive picture on the City’s financial condition through a financial report on all assets, liabilities, revenues, and expenditures. This report, known as the CAFR, is  prepared according to the standards and format set forth by the Government Accounting Standards Board.

The CAFR is the follow-up document to the budget. While the budget documents and authorizes the spending plan for the people’s money, the CAFR describes what was actually spent, and the status of assets and liabilities, at the end of the fiscal year.

The CAFR is organized into three sections: Introduction, Financial, and Statistical. The report is quite large and can be downloaded in its entirety or by section, though the links below.
