2017 CAFR
The Division of Finance is responsible for the fair presentation of the financial statements of the State of Utah and for the preparation of the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR).
The contents of the CAFR present the State’s financial position and results of operations, as well as certain demographic and statistical information to help the reader understand the financial condition of the State for the fiscal year ended June 30.
Financial Highlights
The Division of Finance publishes preliminary financial information as soon as state agencies close their books. This is done to provide key information needed in the budget preparation process which begins in September.
This information is now updated with final fiscal year 2017 data. The financial information is neither comprehensive nor audited. Final audited financial information for fiscal year 2017 is available in the State’s Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR).
