5 Ways State & Local Government Are Modernizing Accounting

Accounting leaders in state and local government are urgently modernizing accounting.

A wave of stimulus funding requires strong budgeting, improved transparency, and a real-time view into spending throughout the fiscal year. Rising fraud risk requires government accounting to identify every variance, exception, and detail in an environment of increased audit scrutiny.

Many accounting departments still don’t know where they are with substantiated balances or how they are performing against budget from the state level downwards. Manual effort is at an all-time high and this year’s year-end scramble will likely be greater than ever.

Without modernization, already high workloads are set to rise. That means more overtime and more pressure on staff at every level, threatening morale further.
