 Management’s Discussion and Analysis
  As management of the Sonoma County Children and Families Commission (the Commission), we offer readers of the Commission’s financial statements this narrative overview and analysis of the financial activities of the Commission for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2007. We encourage readers to consider the information presented here in conjunction with the Commission’s financial statements and the accompanying notes to the basic financial statements.   Financial Highlights   The Commission received $5,422,429 from the State of California from revenues collected under the California Children and Families Act (Proposition 10).  During the current fiscal year, the Commission disbursed $ 3,139,819 in grants and contracts to various service providers, and has designated $9,496,629 to be distributed over the next three years. assets of the Commission exceeded its liabilities at the close of the most recent fiscalThe  year by $28,259,290 (net assets). Of this amount, $28,259,290 (unrestricted net assets) may be used to meet the Commission’s ongoing obligations.  The Commission’s total net assets increased by $1,844,325. This increase is largely attributable to the receipts of Proposition 10 Tobacco Tax funding.  As of the close of the current fiscal year, the Commission’s governmental fund reported combined ending fund balances of $28,259,290, an increase of $1,844,325, in comparison with the prior year. Approximately 97% of this total amount is available for spending at the government’s discretion (unreserved fund balance).  At the end of the current fiscal year, unreserved fund balance for the governmental funds was $27,493,108 or 545% of the total governmental fund expenditures.   Overview of the Financial Statements  This discussion and analysis is intended to serve as an introduction to the Commission’s basic financial statements. The Commission’s basic financial statements comprise three components: 1) government-wide financial statements, 2) fund financial statements, and 3) notes to the basic financial statements. This report also contains other supplementary information in addition to the basic financial statements themselves.  Government-wide financial statements. government-wide financial statements are The designed to provide readers with a broad overview of the Commission’s finances, in a manner similar to a private-sector business.  The statement of net assets presents information on all of the Commission’s assets and liabilities, with the difference between the two reported as net assets. Over time, increases or decreases in

net assets may serve as a useful indicator of whether the financial position of the Commission is improving or deteriorating.  The statement of activities presents information showing how the government’s net assets changed during the most recent fiscal year. All changes in net assets are reported as soon as the underlying event giving rise to the change occurs, regardless of the timing of related cash flows. Thus, revenues and expenses are reported in this statement for some items that will only result in cash flows in future fiscal periods (e.g., uncollected taxes and earned but unused vacation leave).  Fund financial statements. fund is a grouping of related accounts that is used to maintain A control over resources that have been segregated for specific activities or objectives. The Commission, like other state and local governments, uses fund accounting to ensure and demonstrate compliance with finance-related legal requirements. The Commission’s funds are governmental funds.  Governmental funds.Governmental funds are used to account for essentially the same functions reported as governmental activities in the government-wide financial statements. However, unlike the government-wide financial statements, governmental fund financial statements focus on near-term inflows and outflows of spendable resources, as well as on balances of spendable resources available at the end of the fiscal year. Such information may be useful in evaluating a government’s near-term financing requirements.  Because the focus of governmental funds is narrower than that of the government-wide financial statements, it is useful to compare the information presented for governmental funds with similar information presented for governmental activities in the government-wide financial statements. By doing so, readers may better understand the long-term impact of the government’s near-term financing decisions. Both the governmental fund balance sheet and the governmental fund statements of revenues, expenditures, and changes in fund balances provide a reconciliation to facilitate this comparison between governmental funds and governmental activities.  The Commission uses special revenue funds to account for its activities, which include Proposition 10 funding and the implementation of programs to ensure the healthy development of children, the empowerment of families, and the strengthening of communities for all Sonoma County children ages 0-5. The Commission adopts an annual appropriated budget for its funds. A budgetary comparison statement has been provided for the general fund to demonstrate compliance with this budget.  Notes to the basic financial statements.The notes provide additional information that is essential to a full understanding of the data provided in the government-wide and fund financial statements.   Other information.The combining statements referred to earlier in connection with the financial statements are presented immediately following the notes to the financial statements.

  Government-wide Financial Analysis  As noted earlier, net assets may serve over time as a useful indicator of a government’s financial position. In the case of the Commission, assets exceeded liabilities by $28,259,290 at the close of the most recent fiscal year.  By far, the largest portion of the Commission’s net assets (99%) is in cash.  Net Assets

$ 28,259,290 $ 26,339,020
  The balance of the unrestricted net assets ($28,259,290) may be used to meet the Commission’s ongoing obligations.  At the end of the current fiscal year, the Commission is able to report a positive balance in net assets for the government as a whole. The same held true for the prior fiscal year.  The Commission’s net assets increased by $1,844,325, during the current fiscal year. Almost all of this increase represents the degree to which increases in ongoing revenues have outstripped similar increases in ongoing expenses. Each year, the Commission sets aside 40% of the Proposition 10 revenue for future use.  Governmental activities. Governmental activities increased the Commission’s net assets by $1,844,325. This increase is a result of revenues exceeding expenses in the governmental activities.

Approximately 97% of the total amount constitutes unreserved fund balance, which is available for spending at the Commission’s discretion. The remainder of fund balance is reserved to indicate that it is not available for new spending because it has already been committed to liquidate contracts and purchase orders of the prior period ($766,182).
