An independent report commissioned and released publicly by FAF reviewed GASB’s activities as the standard setter for state and local governments. FAF is GASB’s parent organization.
The report advised FAF and GASB to consider:
- Developing a plan to work toward improving the timeliness with which GAAP financial reports are issued.
- Exploring the meanings and dimensions of accountability in practice and the conceptual framework, with an emphasis on research from public administration.
- Analyzing the potential for expanding due process.
- Clarifying the desired policymaking strategy with regard to being proactive or reactive as well as narrow or broad.
