Response to Preliminary Reviews: Project 34 - September 2010

We encourage all OMFOA members to participate in the preliminary stages of accounting standards development and other emerging issues regarding municipal accounting, finance and best management practices.

We are committed to helping you find answers to your accounting questions. Feel free to contact any committee member.

The Committees Goals are:

• A series of articles for the OMFOA newsletter on GASB 34 and its implementation. The committee would like the articles included in the website.

• Update the financial policy resources.

The committee meets quarterly. The committee's primary responsibilities are to review, evaluate and prepare responses to GASB exposure drafts and to provide OMFOA membership with information on accounting issues and developments.
