IN FOCUS: Update on GASB’s Fiduciary Activities Project

Date: October 11, 2016

Time: 2:00–3:15 PM, Eastern Daylight Time

The Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) is pleased to announce a webinar to update and receive feedback from stakeholders on its fiduciary activities project. The Board has deliberated the feedback received on the Exposure Draft, Fiduciary Activities, and has made tentative changes to the proposed guidance to address many of the issues raised. The webinar will cover the following topics:
  1. An overview of the fiduciary activities project
  2. An update on the tentative changes the Board has made, including the guidance on how to identify and report fiduciary activities
  3. Resources that will be available to help with implementation questions
  4. Audience question-and-answer session.
Speakers: Lisa Parker, GASB senior project manager, and Scott Reeser, GASB supervising project manager. Moderators: David R. Bean, GASB director of research and technical activities, and Dean Mead, GASB senior research manager.

Learning Objectives: At the end of this program, participants will be able to broadly understand the proposed guidance regarding:
  1. How fiduciary activities would be identified, including component units that are fiduciary in nature
  2. How governments (including business-type activities) would report fiduciary activities in fiduciary funds and component units
  3. The format and content of the fiduciary fund financial statements.
Participants will have the opportunity to submit questions to the panelists during the event. At the conclusion of the webinar, participants also will be asked to provide feedback to the GASB on the changes it has tentatively decided to make.
