What’s New at the Division of Finance

Thank You to Assistant State Comptroller
Marcie Handy

Assistant State Comptroller Marcie Handy retired at the end of May, 2018.  She began her career with the State in 1992 as an Auditor for the Utah State Auditor’s Office. While there, she was licensed as Certified Public Accountant.

In 1998, Marcie transferred to the Division of Finance as an Accountant in the Financial Reporting Section. Two years later, she was promoted to the Manager of Financial Reporting, and in 2005 to the Assistant State Comptroller.

As the Assistant State Comptroller, Marcie was responsible for the preparation of the State’s Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) for the last 13 years. Each of those years, the CAFR has received “an unqualified opinion” from the State Auditor’s Office and the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Governmental Finance Officers Association. In addition, the CAFR was completed in a timely manner and was the fastest CAFR in the nation at least once.

Marcie was also responsible for the Financial Reporting Section, overseeing 16 employees and many important statewide tasks, including fixed assets, receivables, bank reconciliation, loan servicing, federal indirect cost rates, payment card industry compliance, governmental accounting standards, and budgeting.

Marcie was an extremely valuable asset to the State, to state agencies, and to the Division of Finance, and she will be very much missed.

Division of Finance

The Division of Finance promotes a culture of customer service, efficiency, and effectiveness.

We also expect a high degree of fiscal accountability for the taxpayer resources entrusted to the State from the Utah Legislature and other stakeholders.
