To: All Regional District Financial Administrators
Re: Statutory Deadlines for Regional District Submissions to the Ministry
- In order to simplify the statutory submissions process, the Ministry of
Community Development (Ministry) has prepared an on-line version of
Local Government Data Entry (LGDE) for collection of financial information
for 2008 and future fiscal years.
- In addition to now being on-line, the new version of LGDE has been updated
to incorporate the Public Sector Accounting Board (PSAB) changes to the reporting
format and tangible capital assets effective in 2009.
- his new program will now be housed in one central place known as the
Local Government Information System (LGIS)
In preparation for the upcoming busy season and to assist you in clarifying the
elements and timelines of the statutory requirements, we have prepared the attached
checklist. Please post the list and share it with others in your regional district
that may be responsible for different aspects of the statutory requirements.
In addition, we have prepared the attached summary of how to perform specific tasks
within the new LGIS System including: gaining access, entering and saving data, running
balance checks, printing your submissions and submitting online.
If you have any questions or need any further information please contact
Ms. Brittany Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 250 387-8741.
