The Reporting Solution

Annual Comprehensive Financial Report (ACFR)

Currently, over 90 local governments use The Reporting Solution (TRS) to create their annual report. TRS was designed to streamline the production of the annual report. Having the entire document centrally located eliminates version control issues, and being web-based improves collaboration, which clients say provides the flexibility to add more resources to meet their deadlines.

Since many of us are now teleworking we can no longer yell across the hall for help from our coworkers.  As a result, we have created a support forum for TRS users to better communicate with one another.   

The forum provides another way to support users. Users from different governments can now interact, share tips, discuss approaches to GASB pronouncements, and interact with the TRS support team. Within the forum, users can easily navigate to find answers to old questions they have asked without digging through old emails. Users can search through categories relevant to their questions to possibly find them already answered. 

This forum is for TRS users only. Since it is private users must create an account to access any of the information. 

California State Controller Services

We compile over 15% of California's Cities Financial Transactions Reports annually. Additionally, we compile Street and Special District Reports for California municipalities.


TRS budget solution is currently being piloted in a handful of governments. In addition to the proprietary software used for the ACFR, the budget solution includes an additional feature called Data Financials. Contact us if you are interested in learning more about this pilot.
