COMPREHENSIVE FINANCIAL REPORTS
General information on the City of Mobile's financial expenditures and operations
Monthly Financial Reports
The Monthly Financial Report is the Finance Director's monthly presentation to the Mobile City Council on the City's internal control over financial reporting and on compliance and other matters based on an audit of financial statements.
The City's Accounting Department prints between 200 to 400 checks a week for services, contract obligations and products. Those checks are listed each week on a comprehensive registry.
The City's annual Operating Budget details projected revenues and expenditures for the operations of City services for the coming fiscal year.
Capital Improvement, Strategic Fund and other budgets
The City's Capital Improvement, Strategic Fund and other budgets is a benchmark that identifies future projects and cost estimates that allow City staff to properly plan for future capital improvements throughout the City.
Comprehensive Annual Financial Report
The Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) is an independent, thorough and detailed presentation of the City's financial condition for the past fiscal year.
Popular Annual Financial Report (PAFR)
The Popular Annual Financial Report (PAFR) is a supplemental document to the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR). The PAFR is a summary of the financial activities of the City and was drawn from information found in the corresponding CAFR. The CAFR is prepared in conformance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) and includes audited financial statements. Unlike the CAFR, the PAFR is un-audited and presented on a non-GAAP basis. The PAFR highlights areas of the most frequent interest. We hope that this document is easily understandable by the general public and other interested parties who may not have a background in governmental accounting.
