Alta is an expert in governmental accounting. From towns to school districts to component unit and regional commissions and councils, our team has helped all the diverse entities of the government sector meet their reporting requirements.

Audits – Our audit team works extensively with local governments. We bring our audit clients more than just an auditor’s report – we bring you recommendations to improve your internal controls and proactively adapt to reporting and regulatory changes in the overall industry.  In recent years, we have worked with our clients to proactively prepare for new standards like GASB Statements 84, 85, 87, and 88.  In a changing regulatory landscape, we help our audit clients stay on top of the latest rules and regulations and follow best practices for governmental entities.

Outsourced Accounting and CFO Services – Our outsourced accounting team, led by Todd Frankenfield, a Certified Government Financial Manager, can help get your accounting done easily and on time. We can work with you in many ways – either supervising your finance team, providing general ledger and clerical support for an experienced Director of Finance, or providing a fully outsourced solution: we can help you build a finance department which not only does the required accounting, but does it efficiently and transparently, with a strong customer service focus.

Consulting and Support – The depth of our expertise in the governmental industry means we are well-positioned to help our clients with most financial and accounting issues. Recent projects have included:

  • Internal control and efficiency analysis of accounting departments
