Comprehensive Annual Financial Report

Finance Department

Within four months of the close of each fiscal year, North Carolina counties are required to publish a complete set of financial documents in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).

This annual report is presented in three sections: introductory, financial, and statistical. Broadly, these sections provide organizational information, management discussions and analysis, statements of net position, financial, and demographic information.

Performance Based Budgeting

Twenty-five Departments and Divisions

For over a decade, many Davidson County Departments have been participating in Performance Based Budgeting. The program encourages departments to find savings in their budget by allowing them to set aside a percentage of these savings for future needs, provided they meet certain performance goals.

At the end of each fiscal year, the County Manager's office compiles this information into a booklet, updating departments and the public on the PBB program.

Capital Improvement Plan

Board of Commissioners & County Manager

The Board of Commissioners maintain a Capital Improvement Plan which allows the County to identify and plan for long-term projects.

While the CIP is not a legally binding document, it is essential to the County's long-term strategic planning.
