The Annual Budget is presented to the Commission each April and typically adopted the following June.

Budget Brief for Fiscal Year 2014/2015

The Budget Brief contains a summary of VCTC’s annual budget for the upcoming fiscal year. It provides an overview of VCTC as well as estimated funding sources and expenditures by program.

Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR), Fiscal Year 2012/2013

The State of California requires the Ventura County Transportation Commission (VCTC) to prepare annual financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). The financial statements are then audited by independent certified public accountants. The VCTC goes beyond the minimum established requirements and produces a Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR). The CAFR is designed to provide a complete financial picture of the agency and includes the independent auditors' report, a management discussion, the audited financial statements as well as supplementary information including budget results and statistical information.
