About the Survey (Click here for Original GASB Press Release)
Feedback from those who need financial information about state and local government financial statements is vital to Governmental Accounting Standards Board’s (GASB’) efforts to improve financial accounting and reporting. The GASB is currently conducting pre-agenda research to inform its assessment of the effectiveness of Statement No. 34, Basic Financial Statements—and Management’s Discussion and Analysis—for State and Local Governments, and related standards. This survey is one effort in the planned pre-agenda research to be conducted by the GASB staff.
The GASB has developed an online survey to gather feedback from users of governmental financial information. The GASB would greatly appreciate you taking the time to complete the survey, which can be accessed by following this link http://www.gasb.org/GASB-reexam-survey-user.
It is anticipated that the survey will take longer than a typical GASB survey, given the magnitude of the requirements of Statement 34. To make it easier to complete the survey, it is possible for you to download a copy of the survey in its entirety to consider the questions before entering your responses into the online version. Additionally, you do not have to complete the online survey in a single session. You can save your responses and will be provided an individualized link to return to your survey at a later date to complete it.
You are asked to complete the survey by Friday, October, 24, 2014.
