FINANCE & MANAGEMENT
Finance & Management exists to oversee and manage, according to all applicable laws and standards, the Accounting, Budgeting, Group Insurance, Purchasing, Property, and Risk Management functions within LCG. The department is comprised of an experienced team of financial and other professionals led by the Chief Financial Officer, who provide financial support and reporting services to all departments within Lafayette Consolidated Government as well as the citizens of Lafayette. The staff must at all times operate within the bounds of strict fiduciary duty with regard to taxpayer assets.
The department produces accurate and timely information for citizens, both the City and Parish Councils, employees, and management in order to facilitate sound decisions. In addition to financial management, Finance & Management is directly responsible for financial systems design, development and implementation of financial and internal control policies, making recommendations of funding solutions, debt management, capital financing plans, cost analysis, and business plan recommendations. The CFO and staff act as the lead in working with LCG’s independent auditing firm and others in the review and analysis of LCG transactions. The department offers assistance to the Mayor-President and Councils by interpreting and presenting information on financial data and trends.
