Fiscal Services and Capital Improvement

About Us - Fiscal Services and Capital Improvement

Fiscal Services Division was established as a central point within Facilities Management that adheres to Strategic Plan Goal 2: Promote Leadership, Sound Governance, and Fiscal Responsibility. FSD is responsible for the processing of all system requisitions, invoicing, special projects, major capital improvement and permanent improvement to support all of Dallas County Facilities. Fiscal Services works with our departmental partners to provide customer support to our internal and external customers.

The Capital Improvement Program managed through Facilities is geared toward utilization as a departmental resource and fiscal management tool in coordinating capital improvements over a multi-year period. Capital improvements refer to major expenditures, usually non-recurring in nature, to a physical asset, such as land, buildings, public infrastructure and other equipment. The Capital Improvement Program aligns itself with 3 Goals: Enhanced Capital Planning, Continual Communication with facility members and officials and the development of prudent financial practices.
