GASB reporting model re-examination project

GASB_microphone_124632551.jpgThe Government Accounting Standards Board issued an invitation to comment on January 4 about potential changes to reporting of government funds, which GASB Chair Dave Vaudt recently described in a short video. The Board is seeking input on these ideas from local governments and other users during the preliminary stage of its project to re-evaluate the financial statement reporting model. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) for all state and local governments nationwide is set by GASB in accordance with an open, due process.

The State Auditor’s Office encourages local governments to follow the Board’s activities and provide input on potential accounting standards they will eventually need to follow.
