Highest Possible Opinion for Financial Reporting
Independent auditors have issued a clean opinion on Harford County government’s annual comprehensive financial report for the fiscal year that ended on June 30, 2023. Harford County’s audit was performed by CliftonLarsonAllen LLP.
The clean audit opinion of the county’s FY 2023 annual comprehensive financial report (ACFR) means that the financial statements are accurate and contain no material misstatements. The auditors had no management comments or findings. It also means the ACFR was presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and the requirements of the Government Standards Accounting Board.
Required by state and local laws, the ACFR – formerly known as CAFR – is an overall assessment of the county’s financial position, including revenues, expenses, debt, investment performance and pensions.
