Maintaining Government Operations during COVID-19 Outbreak

The State Controller’s Office staff take the COVID-19 pandemic very seriously, understanding that people may have concerns about potential interruptions in government services. While the State Controller’s team is adjusting workplace procedures in alignment with federal, state, and local directives including the Governor’s emergency declaration and guidelines from state public health officials, the State Controller’s Office continues to be fully operational at this time. Dedicated staff are maintaining critical state operations including:

  • Performing state government accounting, reporting, and auditing functions;
  • Producing payments from the State Treasury including state payroll, retirement rolls, Medi-Cal, personal income tax refunds, and payments to vendors, local governments, and schools;
  • Processing payroll and leave accounting for state employees, state court employees, and California State University employees; and much more.

SCO developed streamlined processes to expedite financial transactions and reporting.
