State and local governmental agencies face complex challenge

State and local governmental agencies face some of the most complex and wide-ranging challenges of any type of organization. Rather than customers, these organizations serve communities and constituents who need to feel confident about how tax dollars are managed, invested and spent. Part of this process is a clear and consistent accounting of spending on a yearly basis. These agencies also have compliance requirements demanding assurance that all relevant regulations have been followed during each reporting period.

This requires experience and knowledge about the nuances and technical workings of governments that not every professional service firm possesses. Hannis T. Bourgeois, LLP has a dedicated team of professionals who serve a variety of governmental entities, including recreation, fire, water and gravity drainage districts, municipalities, school boards, clerk of courts, special districts, and mortgage finance authorities, among others. Additionally, the financial statements we have audited include those which have been awarded the Government Finance Officers Association’s (GFOA’s) Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting.
