The Department of Local Government Finance and the State Board of Accounts, in partnership with the Indiana Business Research Center at Indiana University, have developed the Indiana Gateway for Government Units (“Gateway”). Gateway allows local units of government to submit data to certain state agencies online. Local officials have the ability to submit budget forms and debt reports to the Department, and annual financial reports and employee compensation reports to the State Board of Accounts. Submitted information is immediately available for review by state agencies and is accessible online by the public shortly thereafter.
