Our purpose is to help ensure that government is responsive to the needs of the people of Louisiana – a government that is accountable, efficient, and effective. As one of the Legislature’s most objective resources, we provide independent assessment and proactive guidance, resulting in accurate reporting of the fiscal condition and performance of government and the sources and uses of its financial resources. We are an excellent resource in matters ranging from local fiscal issues to the State’s Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR).
In an evolutionary process influenced by legislation, philosophical and historic impact, and the vision of its five leaders, the Office of the Legislative Auditor has emerged as one of the most respected agencies in the State of Louisiana. With a staff of highly skilled professionals, our office functions as a model agency unencumbered by any semblance of political bias or influence.
