ITA Spotlight of the Month, Summer 2023

Posted on 09/07/2023
Auditor Team collaborates

This quarter’s ITA spotlight shines on the Financial Administrative Services Bureau (FAS). Over the past fiscal year, they helped pass and administer the department’s budget of over $100M, executed over 111 contracts/contract amendments/service level agreements, worked on funding information for 2,552 CSRs, finalized 813 purchase orders, and completed over 1,300 Accounting transactions to run department operations. The Bureau works directly with other departments such as the CAO, the City Attorney, and the Controller’s Office to make sure core services in ITA are supported. This group also has the responsibility of communicating with elected officials such as the Mayor’s Office and various Council Offices to guarantee that ITA’s core duties receive proper administrative approvals.
