Welcome to the expenditures portion of LaTrac. I invite you to utilize this website to learn more about our state government and its spending procedures. I have advocated for transparent government, as I believe that the bright light of transparency and public access should extend to every corner of the state budget.

An honest government has nothing to fear from openness, and I hope you will use this site to ensure that your government is working for you, the people, and not special interests. We will continue to update and expand this site over the coming months, and thank you again for visiting the expenditures portion of LaTrac.

Getting Started

LaTrac contains data from the State's Financial Accounting System, AFS, and is presented by fiscal year, cumulative year to date. LaTrac data is derived directly from the General Ledger, and as such represents actual historical accounting data. The data on LaTrac is updated on a monthly basis with the most recent available complete month. Please click here to see which entities are currently reporting, last updated date, and which entities will be joining LaTrac in the future.

LaTrac contains major categories of spending (object categories) and more detailed categories under each major category (object). For example, a major category would be salaries. The breakdown below salaries would be regular salaries, overtime salaries, etc. This data is provided in a statewide, departmental, and agency basis.

Begin by using the top navigation bar to select a starting point (expenditures by statewide, department, or agency). The lefthand navigation bar will serve as the control panel for the selected category allowing the user to toggle between different views such as tabular (default), pie chart, and bar chart formats. Click any row in order to drill down further into the data.
