Get A Game Plan Louisiana Recovery Authority LaTrac Report Fraud
The Government Efficiencies Management Support (GEMS) project was developed to identify at least $500 million in cost savings and efficiencies within Louisiana State government.  The first phase of the project was completed in May 2014 when the final report was issued by consulting firm Alvarez and Marsal (A&M).

The report far exceeds the $500 million in projected savings, identifying more than $2.7 billion in efficiencies and cost savings measures that that the State could implement over the next five years across all areas of operations, including expanding already successful programs,
maximizing federal funding, improving internal performance,
preventing fraud and abuse, and more effectively managing contracts.

The next step in the project is implementation.  Each of the agencies included in the report are working to put into place A&M's recommendations.  This website is designed to track the progress of the project, including savings and key accomplishments.
