Financial Policies

Promoting financial integrity is an important policy in the County of Tulare. Our financial policies and guidelines establish the framework for the County's overall fiscal planning and management.

These policies set forth guidelines against which current budgetary performance can be measured and proposals for future programs can be evaluated. The policies help to ensure that the County continues to follow its Strategic Business Plan and meet Initiative No. 4: Organizational Performance - to continuously improve organizational effectiveness and stability.

These policies may be amended from time to time by a majority vote of the Board of Supervisors, except those sections that require a 4/5th vote to permanently change specific requirements. The Board may, however, by 4/5th vote, suspend or alter any of these specific requirements sections on a one-time-basis for one year, without permanently amending these policies.
