Finance and Administration

The administrative arm of Weld County Government is the Finance and Administration Department, incorporating the offices of Finance and Administration, Human Resources, Purchasing, Accounting, Budget, Information Services, Geographical Information System, Phone Services, Printing and Supply, Insurance, and Capital.

Administratively the department is charged, per the Weld County Home Rule Charter, to cause the policies adopted or approved by the Board of County Commissioners to be implemented in those divisions as required by the Board of County Commissioners and to insure that the activities of those departments are consistent with the policies determined and set by the Board of County Commissioners.

The Chief Financial Officer prepares monthly financial statements, annual budgets, and appropriation reports for all County departments and special districts, advising the Board of County Commissioners of the financial condition and future needs of the County. The proposed budget, prepared by the Chief Financial Officer and the Board of Commissioners, includes recommended operating expenses, capital expenditures, and revenue sources for all departments and units of the County government. With the assistance of elected officials and department heads, the Chief Financial Officer gathers necessary information for the preparation of the annual County Final Budget.
