Popular Annual Financial Report (PAFR)

Top of page

The purpose of this report is to summarize and simplify the presentation of information contained in the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) of the Commonwealth of Virginia. The Commonwealth's financial statements are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and are independently audited by the Auditor of Public Accounts. Much of the information in the audited financial statements is necessarily technical and complex. As a result, the full financial statements may not be particularly useful to the citizens of the Commonwealth who wish to better understand state government finances.

Over the last several years, state and local governments have begun issuing simplified financial reports. These are often referred to as "popular reports." These reports are intended to better inform the public about their government's financial condition, without excessive detail or the use of technical accounting terms.

This report summarizes and explains the information contained in the financial statements for the last fiscal year, along with other information on the Commonwealth's finances, in easily understood terms. This report represents the ongoing commitment of Commonwealth officials to keep Virginians informed about state finances, and to be accountable in all respects for the receipt and expenditure of public funds.

If you have questions or comments, please contact the Financial Reporting Unit.

Preliminary Annual Report

Top of page

The Preliminary Annual Report is comprised of budgetary (cash) basis financial statements that present the financial condition, results of operations, and changes in fund balance of the Commonwealth's General Fund. The notes to the financial statements are an important and integral part of the statements.

This preliminary report is presented on an unaudited basis. In preparing this report, we relied upon the internal accounting controls of the Commonwealth that are designed to provide management with reasonable, but not absolute, assurances that assets are safeguarded against loss from unauthorized use or disposition, and that transactions are executed in accordance with management's authorization and are properly recorded to permit the preparation of financial statements.

The final Annual Report of the Comptroller, due on December 15, will include certain accruals and other information required for conformance with generally accepted accounting principles. It will be audited and will include any material adjustments recommended by the Auditor of Public Accounts.

If you have questions or comments, please contact the Financial Reporting Unit.

Virginia Truth in Revenue Source Reporting

Top of page


In accordance with the requirements set forth in the Virginia Truth in Revenue Source Reporting Act, posted below are reports from Cardinal, the official accounting system for the Commonwealth. The reports show revenues collected by the Commonwealth by the Account ChartField. Beside each Account is its title, which will provide a description of the revenue collected. The Commonwealth operates on a fiscal year of July 1st through June 30th. Each report posted below provides cumulative year-to-date data. December’s report includes revenues collected from July 1st through December 31st, and June’s report includes data for the entire fiscal year, July 1st through June 30th.

There is one Cardinal report run with different sort criteria, which reports the same data in different formats. The formats are as follows:

  • Revenue Status Report from Cardinal – sorted by Business Unit (Agency), Fund, and Account. Within each agency the revenue collections are shown by fund. Each fund will show revenue collections by the actual revenue account.
  • Revenue Status Report from Cardinal – sorted by Fund, Account, and Business Unit (Agency). Within each fund revenue collections are shown by the actual revenue account. Each revenue account will list every agency that has had collections for that revenue account.

As of December 31, 2019, the Department of Accounts has not identified any control findings issued by the Auditor of Public Accounts that pertain to the use of revenue.

The Auditor of Public Accounts reports that all transfers set forth in Part 3 of the Appropriation Act, Chapter 2, 2018 Virginia Acts of Assembly, Special Session I for December 2018 (PDF) and Chapter 854, 2019 Virginia Acts of Assembly for June and December 2019 (PDF), except those transfers representing payments for services, or those transfers necessary to execute the intended purpose of revenue collections, meet the conditions prescribed for posting in the Virginia Truth in Revenue Source Reporting Act.

Corrective Action Plan – Single Audit

Top of page

In accordance with CFR §200.511 Audit findings follow-up (c) Corrective action plan, the State Comptroller of Virginia (auditee) must prepare, in a document separate from the auditor's findings described in CFR §200.516 Audit findings, a corrective action plan to address each audit finding included in the current year auditor's report. The corrective action plan also cites findings relating to the financial statements, which are required to be reported in accordance with Generally Accepted Government Auditing Standards. The corrective action plan cites the reference number the auditor assigned to each auditing finding, name(s) of the contact person(s) responsible for corrective action, the corrective action planned, and the anticipated completion date. The corrective action plan does not express a disagreement with any of the audit findings nor does it disclose that corrective action is not required.

Certain corrective actions planned are not contained in this corrective action plan because they contain descriptions of security mechanisms and are Freedom of Information Act Exempt under §2.2-3705.2 of the Code of Virginia. Federal awarding agencies or pass-through entities needing such information in formulating their management decisions as required by CFR §200.521 Management decision, should communicate with the contact person responsible for the respective corrective action planned to address the audit finding.
