The Louisiana Legislative Auditor (LLA) is offering an exciting, intense, hands-on training and certification program specifically designed for Louisiana's local government officials and their staffs. The two-day Level 1 Workshop will introduce the basics of internal control, accounting and financial reporting for local governments, and will deliver helpful instruction on legal issues that local government officials and their staffs often encounter. In keeping with the LLA's purpose to help ensure that government is accountable, transparent and responsive to the needs of the people of Louisiana, these courses are expressly created to help improve both the services local government delivers to its citizens and the quality of local government audits. We believe that if local government officials and their staffs are better prepared for audits, this kind of training can effectively help local government decrease both audit costs paid and its overall operating costs, as employees become more efficient.
Level 1 sessions will be held in Alexandria on August 23-24, 2017 and in Baton Rouge on September 27-28, 2017.
