Local Agency Depositories Strongly Encouraged to File Reports Electronically

The forms should be sent as an email attachment to LASPcallreport@dbo.ca.gov. NOTE:  Reporting institutions should download forms with a revision date of 03/15; DO NOT use forms with the 12/14 revision date.  DO NOT scan the Excel spreadsheet and email a PDF.
Some banks and credit unions continue to report by fax or U.S. mail, or email PDFs of the hard copy reports or the spreadsheets instead of sending the Excel spreadsheets as attachments.. If your institution is not using the spreadsheet, download the form and instructions from the DBO’s website at: http://www.dbo.ca.gov/Licensees/local_agency_security_program/requirements.asp
We welcome your feedback on the forms and submission process.

Nil Report No Longer Required

Formerly, financial institutions that did not accept local agency deposits were required to submit a quarterly nil report to LASP.  Starting with the second quarter 2015, this requirement has been eliminated.
