Welcome to the Louisiana Legislative Auditor's Local Government Reporting System

The Local Government Reporting System, also known as the CPA Portal, provides an online system for CPAs to submit reports and other required documents for local government entities.  The use of this system is mandatory for all reports that the CPA is required to submit to the LLA.

To begin using the system, login using the Login link at the top right corner of the screen. If you do not see the engagement information for a report you are trying to submit, that means that there is not an approved engagement request on file.  Please complete an Engagement Approval Form.



The user guide and latest version of the financial indicators worksheet are available below.

To file an extension click here.  If the delay is COVID-19 related, please file the extension request as disaster-related.   Most emergency extension requests will be approved and confirmations sent AFTER 6/30/2020.   You will be contacted BEFORE this date if the extension is not approved.  Questions regarding the extension process should be directed to Gayle Fransen at 225-339-3874 or gfransen@lla.la.gov.

Actual Engagement Costs are required within 90 days of the date the report is received by our office and should be submitted through the portal.  If you have any questions regarding cost submission please contact Gina Guzzardo at erereports@lla.la.gov.

Reports with a 12/31/19 FYE are required in our office by 11:59 PM on Tuesday, June 30th .  Reports received after that time will require a late finding unless an extension has been requested. If you require an extension, please see the link above.
