The Auditor-Controller employs more than 400 staff many with accounting degrees and several who have earned their CPA designation. The office is organized along four Operational Units: Central Accounting, Satellite Accounting (accounting for other County Departments), Internal Audit, and Information Technology.
Our mission is to make the County’s finances as open and transparent as possible. By the end of each calendar year, we complete a detailed financial report for the previous fiscal year. This highly detailed document, the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) is available on this website. Click here for the CAFR Reports.
In addition, we prepare a companion piece, the Orange County Citizens’ Report, which provides a general overview and highlights of the CAFR but designed for the general public. Click here for the Citizens’ Reports.
