District Financial Audit

An independent audit of the District’s financial records and practices is performed annually in compliance with CHWD Policy No. 6010. The audit is performed by an independent certified public accounting firm that reports directly to the District’s Board of Directors. We are pleased that the annual financial audit shows that the District’s financial records are in good shape, and its accounting practices conform with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. In some years, the Independent Auditor also prepares a Management Letter that provides comments on District internal controls and operations, with suggestions regarding matters identified as opportunities for strengthening internal controls and operating efficiency.

Copies of the most recent five years’ Independent Auditor’s Reports that include the Financial Statements, Supplemental Information, and the Management Letter where applicable can be viewed by clicking on the links below:

SB 272 defines an “enterprise system” as a software application or computer system that collects, stores, exchanges, and analyzes information that the agency uses and that meets the following conditions: (1) it is a multi-departmental system or a system that contains information about the public; and (2) it is a “system of record” — that is, a system that serves as an original source of data within the agency.

Under SB 272, enterprise systems do not include information technology (IT) security systems (including firewalls and other cybersecurity systems); physical access control systems; employee identification management systems; video monitoring and other physical control systems; infrastructure and mechanical control systems (including those that control or manage street lights, electrical, natural gas, water, or sewer functions); systems related to emergency services (such as 911 dispatch and operations); or data and information that would reveal vulnerabilities to, or otherwise increase the potential for an attack on, the agency’s IT system.

CHWD employs the following enterprise systems to meet our customer and operational needs:
