Description: 

GFOA has recently updated and reformatted the checklist of generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and program requirements for the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting (CAFR Award) Program. In addition to incorporating new GAAP and citations referencing the GASB’s Codification, the checklist focuses additional attention on newer, more complex standards, such as those related to pension and other post-employment benefits (OPEB), while somewhat condensing coverage of other topics. This session should be attended by anyone interested in preparing a better CAFR by making the most of this notable resource. This session will also include a discussion of selected common reporting deficiencies noted by reviewers.
