Mission & Goals
To promote the value of independent performance auditing throughout the local government community.

We provide professional resources and support to those in local government communities
  • without audit functions
  • with new audit functions
  • with established audit functions
Check out the resources we have available to support ALGA members and for the public.

We also provide support for local government communities that are considering diminishing the independence of the audit function. 

Current Initiatives
  • Respond quickly to requests for assistance
  • Advocate for or against specific changes in local governments, in support of independent performance auditing
  • Provide materials and speakers to local government community
  • Provide input on state legislation that would impact independent auditing in local government
