Each year, the Actuary for CTPF prepares Funding and GASB 67/68 Actuarial Reports as part of the annual close of the fiscal year. The Funding report is presented to the Board of Trustees for review and approval. This report includes funding status and other related matters to meet the various regulatory requirements. The GASB 67/68 report assists CTPF and its primary employer to comply with financial reporting requirements, and is also utilized in the preparation of the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) that is audited by the Fund’s external auditors.
Each year, CTPF prepares an Annual Comprehensive Financial Report (ACFR)*. The report contains financial results of the Fund’s operation in a fiscal year. The ACFR is audited by an Independent Auditor who expresses an opinion as to whether the financial reports fairly present the Fund’s financial condition for the fiscal year. The report also includes investment, actuarial, and statistical information about the Fund for the fiscal year.
* Prior to 2021 this report was called the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR).
