Status

Issued: June 2001 

Effective Date:  Coincides with the effective date of GASB Statement 34 for the reporting government. That is, the requirements of this Statement are effective in three phases based on a government’s total annual revenues in the first fiscal year ending after June 15, 1999:

  • Phase 1 governments—with total annual revenues of $100 million or more—should apply the requirements of this Statement in financial statements for periods beginning after June 15, 2001.
  • Phase 2 governments—with total annual revenues of $10 million or more but less than $100 million—should apply the requirements of this Statement in financial statements for periods beginning after June 15, 2002.
  • Phase 3 governments—with total annual revenues of less than $10 million—should apply the requirements of this Statement in financial statements for periods beginning after June 15, 2003. 

This Statement should be simultaneously implemented with Statement 34. Earlier application is encouraged, if done in conjunction with early adoption of Statement 34.
