Focus on Public Sector: AICPA Offering Webcasts on GASB Pension Standards Implementation Issues

Contact Our Team

Because GASB Statement 68, Accounting and Financial Reporting for Pensions—an amendment of GASB Statement No. 27, will significantly change how employers participating in cost-sharing plans account for and report pension amounts, the AICPA’s Governmental Audit Quality Center is offering two webcasts to members and non-members.
April 30, 2014

As a benefit of being a member of the AICPA’s Governmental Audit Quality Center (GAQC), periodic continuing professional education (CPE) webcasts are made available to RubinBrown. Occasionally, due to the nature of certain topics, the GAQC opens the webcasts to non-members.


Because GASB Statement 68, Accounting and Financial Reporting for Pensions—an amendment of GASB Statement No. 27, will significantly change how employers participating in cost-sharing plans account for and report pension amounts, two webcasts are available for any interested parties to participate in. These events will help you understand best practices for planning and coordinating what will be needed from the plan and the repercussions if such planning and coordination with the plan does not occur, including the possibility of employer auditors having to issue modified audit opinions.
