Annual Performance Measures
Statewide Accounting and Reporting Services (SARS) provides leadership, effective statewide accounting and financial reporting services, provides high quality customer consultation, and ensures statewide compliance with state and federal fiscal reporting requirements.
SARS interprets generally accepted accounting principles and establishes statewide policy through the Oregon Accounting Manual. We provide professional consultation and training services to agency fiscal staff on accounting and financial reporting. Our team compiles and publishes the State's audited Comprehensive Annual Financial Report. Ad hoc reporting from statewide financial accounting systems is made available to agencies through the SCD DataMart, which is managed by SARS. We also coordinate federally mandated reporting requirements and provide guidance to agencies on various federal compliance issues. In addition, SARS provides administration of security for the State's financial systems, as well as administers the statewide travel card program and the statewide travel policy.
