Voice Your Opinion on the GASB34 Statement

May 13, 2014

The Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) is seeking feedback on  Statement No. 34, Basic Financial Statements-and Management's Discussion and Analysis-for State and Local Governments (GASB34). 

Engagement in the standards process can help ensure that tribal preparers' concerns and needs are heard by the GASB.  This is a unique opportunity for Indian Country to voice its opinion on how the format of the statements could be improved to best meet the needs of users of tribal financial statements, which may be significantly different from the needs of state or local governments. Many have previously expressed concern about the complexity of the current GASB model and its ability to effectively address issues that are unique to tribal governments and their tribal enterprises.
