As a CPA, CGMA or finance professional practicing in government, you’re committed to doing the research and analysis needed for proper accounting and auditing. A comprehensive and exhaustive site to increase your awareness, understanding and interpretation of standards and regulations for your success in your role begins here.

The AICPA’s management accounting team is on it for you. We’ve compiled in one place the current accounting and auditing standards (along with the frequent and up to date changes) from the Government Accountability Office (GAO), Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB), Federal Accounting Standards Advisory Board (FASAB), the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and others.

Standards

Government entities are governed by the standards of many regulating bodies. Government standards whether general (GASB/FASAB) or more specific (Yellow Book, Green Book, COSO) provide not only standards but interpretations and best practices for not only federal entities, but state and local governments as well. Whether accounting for leases, grants, auditing public housing or establishing a compliance program, we’ve compiled the information you need to meet your needs here.

Regulations

Regulations, including timelines, deadlines and changes are often in a relevant memorandum format.

Laws

Understanding the following laws is paramount to establishing accounting practices within government entities.
