DLGF > Gateway > Debt Management Gateway Debt Management

Gateway Debt Management is used by over 2600 units of government to report information on outstanding debt obligations, including bonds, loans, and leases. IC 5-1-8 requires units to report new debt through Gateway Debt Management within one month after the debt is incurred. In addition, the Department requires units to annually review and verify the accuracy of the debt information that is contained in Gateway Debt Management.


Local Officials:

Gateway Public Site:


Debt Reports Due

The debt report deadline for all units is March 1, 2017. To fulfill this requirement, local officials will need to log in to Gateway at, enter the Debt Management application, review the debts previously submitted, and sign the affirmation statement indicating that all debt information is current and correct. Any missing or incomplete debt reports must be submitted before signing the affirmation statement. Similarly, any submitted debt reports with errors must first be unlocked, corrected, and resubmitted before the affirmation statement can be signed. Any reports for debts that have been fully refinanced or repaid must be marked as “retired” prior to signing the affirmation statement. If your unit has no debt outstanding, simply sign the affirmation statement to indicate no outstanding debt.
