The Bureau of Finance and Accounting is responsible for developing and implementing policies and procedures related to fiscal matters: directing and coordinating the preparation of annual and periodic financial reports; interpreting fiscal data used to formulate recommendations to management; developing changes to existing accounting and internal control.

Accomplishments in FY 1998-99

  • Streamlined the accounting system by reducing the number of accounting codes as part of the department's realignment.

  • Implemented the Electronic Data Interchange and Invoice Tracking System in the Ft. Lauderdale Service Center. Vendor invoices are received, approved, and processed for payment electronically, thereby eliminating paper flow.

  • Added a web page for accounting bulletins issued after July 1998, providing for increased accessibility by department personnel and eliminating the need to copy and mail documents statewide.

  • Implemented the Inmate Bank/Cashless Canteen System for Community Work Release Centers to include subsistence, transportation, restitution and cash draws and eliminated the need to maintain an obsolete 1980's inmate banking system.
