The State Auditor’s Office (SAO) is required by state law (RCW 43.09.200) to prescribe uniform budgeting, accounting, and reporting systems that local governments must follow. The prescribed reporting requirements prepared by SAO are available in the GAAP and Cash-Basis Budgeting, Accounting, and Reporting System>(BARS) manuals. These manuals give local governments the standardized chart of accounts they must use to report their revenues, expenditures and expenses to the State Auditor’s Office every year.
