According to a press release from the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB), a new website has been launched that features more user-friendly navigation and “plain English” resources that provide extensive background on accounting and financial reporting issues for State and local governments.
The new GASB website is designed to be the primary source of news and information about the GASB and its activities. The website includes videos and other new content intended for a wide range of users, including those who are unfamiliar with the GASB and its activities. For example, the inaugural video features GASB Chairman David A. Vaudt discussing implementation issues related to the new GASB pension accounting and financial reporting standards.
The new GASB website has a more intuitive web platform that makes it easier to find the latest updates on projects and initiatives. For example, GASB’s new pension standards, due process documents currently out for comment, and the new online Governmental Accounting Research System are prominently featured on the main page along with other key GASB resources.
