HELPING GOVERNMENT ENTITIES MAINTAIN AND ENHANCE THE ABILITY TO BETTER SERVE TAXPAYERS AND CONSTITUENTS

Government entities are required to manage their resources, contain costs and provide customer service, like any other organization. They also have unique financial and compliance requirements, as well as complex accounting, reporting and audit standards. Under public scrutiny for their guardianship of public funds, they must comply with the constantly evolving directives of the Government Accounting Standards Board (GASB). 

Over a 40-year period, MSL has built a Governmental Practice Group that understands the issues and specific needs of various government bodies. Founded and based in Florida, MSL has earned extensive experience and relationships in serving the government sector and is uniquely qualified to meet the needs of government. We will give you practical advice on financial administration, accountability, performance management, budgeting, and transparency so you can be confident that your organization is successful and compliant.

The MSL Governmental Practice Group is actively involved with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), the Florida Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the Florida Government Finance Officers Association, and the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners in addition to several other industry-specific associations. These relationships allow us to stay abreast of new accounting standards issued by the GASB and the AICPA. We provide our clients with updates throughout the year regarding these pronouncements, providing ample time to assess the impact and plan for the new standards before the implementation dates.
