The Department of Finance and Administration oversees Human Resources, Purchasing, Accounting, Information Services, Geographical Information System, Phone Services, Printing and Supply, Insurance, and Capital. The department's duties consist of instituting policy handed down from the Board of County Commissioners and making sure the daily operations of all offices overseen by the department are operating in ways that are "consistent with the policies determined and set by the Board of County Commissioners."
The division of Finance and Administration also administers Weld County's self insured program. Since 1980, Weld County has been in a protected, self-insurance program for all potential liability, casualty, and workers' compensation losses. The program includes management and a safety program to minimize the losses to Weld County.
Weld County participates in the casualty and property pool, offered by Colorado Counties, Inc., to minimize costs of insurance and maximize coverage. The County is self-insured for workers' compensation claims. Insurance claims can be filed by contacting Human Resources at (970) 356-4000, Ext. 4234.
The Finance Office prepares monthly financial statements, annual budgets and appropriation reports for all County departments and special districts, advising the Board of County Commissioners of the financial condition and future needs of the County. The proposed budget, prepared by the Director of Finance and Administration and the Board of Commissioners, includes recommended operating expenses, capital expenditures, and revenue sources for all departments and units of the County government. With the assistance of elected officials and department heads, the Director of Finance and Administration gathers necessary information for the preparation of the annual County Final Budget.
