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.
