Fiscal Year 2016/2017 Budget

Each year, VCTC’s Finance Department prepares a comprehensive Annual Budget itemizing revenues, expenditures, and investments for the upcoming fiscal year. Program budgets include objectives and accomplishments at the task level for each of VCTC’s six programs: Transit and Transportation, Highways, Rail, Commuter Assistance, Planning and Programming, and General Governance. The Annual Budget is presented to the Commission each April and typically adopted the following June.

Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR), Fiscal Year 2014/2015

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.

Single Audit Report on Federal Awards for Fiscal Year 2014/2015

The Comptroller General of the United States requires that VCTC comply with OMB Circular A-133, Audits of States, Local Governments, and Non-Profit Organizations. To comply, VCTC prepares an annual Single Audit Report on Federal Awards which is audited by an independent certified public accounting firm.
