The accounting responsibilities of the County Auditor include Accounts Payable, Payroll, and Financial Reporting.

The Accounts Payable division's audit function provides an independent and impartial review of invoices for legitimate expenditures of County funds. Once the auditing function is completed, the Accounts Payable division processes warrants for payment of the invoices processed for that time period.

The Payroll division is responsible for the production of the County payroll, processing the related transactions and reports, and generation of County employee pay checks.

The County Auditor's Accounting Division supports the financial reporting needs of the Board of County Commissioners, produces the Annual Financial Report, and serves an integral role in the development and implementation of the annual County budget process and production of the budget document.
