Goals for 2012
- Retain the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting
- Initiate a pilot test of procurement card use in conjunction with Purchasing and Financial Administration by June 2011. In addition to reducing the time required to process high-volume low-dollar transactions, use of procurement cards will allow the town to reduce the number of checks issued and the number of days in the payment cycle.
- Complete testing and implement electronic interface of financial data from the tax system into the general ledger by June 2011.
- Continue to monitor investment opportunities and alternatives to ensure safety of principal and maximize earnings during a period of record low interest rates
- Initiate testing of decentralized invoice entry by user departments to eliminate duplicative effort by April 2012.
