Commissioner of Administration


Thank you for visiting Louisiana Division of Administration. The Division is the state government’s management arm and the hub of its financial operations. We are responsible for development of the state budget and oversight of agencies’ spending to determine – among other things – whether performance goals are being met. The Office of Planning and Budget also performs long- and short-term analysis of the state’s financial condition.

Division offices perform a wide variety of activities, including overseeing the state's capital construction program; working to provide state and federal grants for community development, particularly in areas with low to moderate income residents; and administering a program that provides federal funds to help Louisiana residents recover from a series of devastating hurricanes. Another office assists vendors in doing business with the state and gives agencies guidance in the state purchasing and contracting process as they seek goods and services.

Links to all Division of Administration offices and more information about their operations are found on this website. You’ll also find features allowing you to access information about how tax dollars are spent. Peruse budget documents posted on the site or check out Louisiana Checkbook, the transparency and accountability portal for Louisiana government.

We are open to suggestions on how to improve the delivery of state services and make government more cost-effective. Feel free to contact me or any member of my staff as we continue efforts to improve Louisiana government operations to better serve you.
