Standards & Guidance
The FASAB Handbook of Accounting Standards and Other Pronouncements, as Amended (Current Handbook)—an approximate 2,500-page PDF—is the most up-to-date, authoritative source of generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) developed for federal entities. It is updated annually to incorporate pronouncements issued by FASAB through June 30 of each year. The annual update includes incorporating amendments within each previously issued pronouncement.
The following pronouncements have been issued since June 30, 2020, and are not included in the current handbook:
- Interpretation 10—Clarification of Non-federal Non-entity FBWT Classification (SFFAS 1, Paragraph 31): An Interpretation of SFFAS 1 and SFFAS 31 (PDF)
- SFFAS 59—Accounting and Reporting of Government Land (PDF)
