General Information

In October 2021 and February 2022 the Louisiana Legislative Auditor, through the Center for Local Government Excellence, offered complimentary virtual classes on a variety of topics specifically designed for Louisiana's local government officials and their staffs. 

These sessions were recorded to enable viewing by those who were unable to attend or for those who were able to attend but want a refresher. The goal of this program is to enable local officials to take the knowledge and skills gained from these classes back to their respective governments and use them to make a positive difference. 

The October 2021 classes included Public Bid Law and Cabela, American Rescue Plan Act, Internal Controls and Best Practices, Understanding Governmental Financial Statements, Justice System Funding Reporting (Act 87), Open Meetings Law and Public Records, Local Government Budget Act, and Statewide Agreed-Upon Procedures.
