The Bureau of Financial Control (BFC) provides oversight and direction to all state agencies to ensure financial compliance with state law, rules and regulations. It consists of two divisions: Payroll and Accounting and Finance. The Accounting and Finance Division oversees Payment Documents and Receipt Documents. The Payroll Division supports agencies with the payroll process and other agency support services. The responsibilities of BFC include:

  • Pre-audit documents submitted for payment prior to issuance of a warrant

  • Collect or receive public funds or monies to be deposited in the State Treasury

  • Issue, void and reissue warrants

  • Maintain daily reports and account balance of accounting transactions by appropriation units

  • Provide fiscal control over state spending

  • Provide technical payroll assistance to State agencies and approve final payrolls

  • Post-audit travel vouchers

 

In order to accomplish these functions, the Bureau of Financial Control works in conjunction with other DFA offices such as the Office of Budget and Fund Management, Office of Purchasing and Travel, and the Mississippi Management and Reporting System (MMRS). BFC uses the Mississippi's Accountability System for Government Information and Collaboration (MAGIC) and the Statewide Personnel and Human Resources System (SPAHRS) to administer the accounting and payroll functions for the State.
