Reporting Requirements for Annual Financial Reports of State Agencies and Universities

References

Deadlines

Texas Government Code, Section 2101.011, requires all agencies to file all annual financial reports (AFRs) no later than Nov. 20 of each year. If your agency submits any revisions after this deadline, due to an independent audit or otherwise, the revision may or may not be reflected in the state’s Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR). If an independent auditor’s report is required by statute, it is due within thirty (30) days following the AFR deadline. See the List of Agencies with Independent Audits Required by Statute.

The Comptroller is authorized, through Texas Government Code, Section 2101.0376, to impose an administrative penalty for any agency not meeting the deadlines if the Comptroller’s office publishes a late or incomplete CAFR as a result of the agency’s late AFR. In addition, any agency that fails to comply with the reporting requirements may be included in the State Auditor’s Statewide Management Letter.
