ABOUT THE BUREAU

The Local Government Services Bureau (LGSB) works with local governments (counties, cities & towns, school districts and special districts) to ensure uniform financial accountability, and to assist the local governments in complying with their statutory financial and budgetary reporting requirements, including provisions of the Montana Single Audit Act and the Local Government Budget Act.

The Bureau consists primarily of two sections:

  • The Local Government Accounting and Financial Reporting Section provides technical assistance and training to local government accounting and financial personnel in the areas of local government accounting, budgeting and financial reporting.
     
  • The Local Government Audit Review Section works with local governments and independent CPA firms to ensure that financial and compliance audits meet statutory requirements and professional standards.
