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.

Engagement submission questions should be sent to eengage@lla.la.gov.   Report submission questions, including resubmissions, should be sent to ereports@lla.la.gov.

The user guide and the latest version of the Financial Indicators Worksheet and the Act 87 Schedules are available below.  (To download, right-click on the file link and choose Save link as.....)

All Reports with a FYE of 9/30/2023 are due in our office by 11:59 PM on Monday, April 1st.

When submitting an Engagement Approval Request, the engagement agreements for the Audit, Single Audit, ARPA AUP or any other AUP (where applicable), with the exception of the SAUP, should be submitted as a single PDF attachment with the costs for each type combined for the Estimated Cost of Report. The SAUP engagement agreement may be included in the PDF with other agreements, but the costs should remain separate.

Statewide Agreed-Upon Procedures (SAUP) were reinstated for fiscal years ending on or after December 31, 2021 (see Audit Risk Alert #37).   Every procedure is required to be tested every year.   Beginning with reports submitted on or after March 31, 2023, auditors are required to report if any exceptions were found for each of the 14 procedures (see Audit Risk Alert #50).  Exceptions will be collected in the Engagement Questions tab of the portal during the report submission process.
