Unit Assistance List (UAL) Training Course

The purpose of this course is to provide local officials with concrete strategies to remove their respective local governments from the Local Government Commission’s Unit Assistance List. The course covers the budget adoption and implementation process, including the pre-audit requirement, the need for proper and documented internal controls, and the annual financial audit. It also presents the financial metrics and benchmarks used by the Local Government Commission to determine the fiscal health of counties and municipalities in North Carolina.
