The Governmental Accounting Standards Board has issued a proposed Implementation Guide to help users better understand and apply the board’s statements.

The guide covers a broad range of issues, addressing questions on GASB standards on pensions, cash flow statements, the financial reporting entity, and external investment pools, among many others.

It also includes proposed changes to previously issued implementation guidance.

The exposure draft of Implementation Guide No. 201X-Y, Implementation Guidance Update—201X is available on GASB’s Web site.
