The Fiscal Operations Department is responsible for the management, monitoring and disbursements of the City's cash payments and for processing the payroll for over 6,000 City employees and 1,500 of its retirees. It facilitates payment to vendors through a decentralized accounts payable process. Accounts Receivable is in Fiscal Operations and also functions through a decentralized process.

This was the 20th consecutive year the City received this award. According to GFOA, the certificate is the highest form of recognition in governmental accounting and financial reporting. Its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management.
