Other Annual Reports

Annual Comprehensive Financial Report (ACFR)

The ACFR is a complex document that covers Washington state’s financial condition. The annual report, published by the Office of Financial Management (OFM), includes detailed information on the state’s structure, services and finances, as well as trends and nonfinancial data.

State of Washington Single Audit Report (SWSA)

The SWSA, published annually by OFM, documents whether state agencies are meeting the requirements that come with federal money. It is an important audit that covers billions of federal dollars. It’s called a “single audit” because a federal law ensures that grant recipients are subject to one audit of all their federal programs versus separate audits of each program — hence the term “single audit.”

Special Education funding in Washington

At the direction of the Legislature (E2SSB 5091), the State Auditor’s Office (SAO) reviewed special education revenue and expenditures for Washington school districts during the 2018-2019 school year.

Local funds reports

The State Auditor’s Office (SAO) is responsible for auditing public funds and accounts that are not managed by or in the care of the State Treasurer. These funds are commonly referred to as “local funds,” because they are deposited with local banks, often close to the agency’s business office. As of 2016, state agencies and higher education institutions held more than $12 billion in local funds.
