Popular Annual Financial Report (PAFR)

PAFR General Information

The Popular Annual Financial Report, or PAFR, is prepared to inform the residents of Boulder County about the finances of the county in a format that is easy to understand by those without a background in public finance or accounting. It is designed for readers who would like to review financial and operational information in a summarized format and also provides non-financial information to give users a better understanding of the county as a whole.

*Note: Popular Annual Financial Reports are not required by state law, but are created for more general public consumption. Boulder County began publishing PAFRs in 2012. The PAFR is created in conjunction with the Certified Annual Financial Report (CAFR) which must be completed by July 31 for the previous calendar year. Therefore, the most recent PAFR may be dated one year behind the current year (e.g., the 2017 PAFR will be published in July 2018).
