Day 2 of the conference will address accounting and internal control related matters. We’ll kick off the conference with a 4 hour deep dive into what is going on at the GASB. We’ll look at the plethora of standards that were issued by GASB and how they will impact financial reporting. After lunch, we’ll focus on some major proposals issued by GASB that will materially impact financial reporting including the revenue and expense proposal as well as the new financial reporting model. Then we’ll switch gears to talk about COVID19 and its impact on financial reporting for governmental entities with a focus on the AICPA’s FAQ and GASB’s Technical Bulletin. We’ll close Day 2 with a look at common deficiencies including a focus on independence and SKE under Yellow Book 2019, roles and responsibilities in an audit and a preview of the new auditor’s report.

Due to the uncertainty of large group gatherings in the coming months, the Government Finance Experts Conference will be held virtually. Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions or concerns you may have.
