The Financial Accounting Foundation launched an updated Web site Monday in conjunction with new leaders at the two standard-setting boards it oversees, the Financial Accounting Standards Board and the Governmental Accounting Standards Board, while also reviving an old dispute with the American Institute for CPAs over financial reporting standards for private companies.

On Monday, Russell Golden succeeded Leslie Seidman as FASB chairman, while David Vaudt succeeded Robert Attmore as chairman of GASB (see FASB and GASB Chairs Retiring). The FAF revamped the Web site for FASB in April to commemorate the FAF’s 40th anniversary and announced plans to redesign the GASB and FAF sites as well (see FAF and FASB Revamp Web Sites for 40th Anniversary).
