    IPSASB Publishes 2011 Handbook of Pronouncements

    The International Public Sector Accounting Standards Board (IPSASB) published today its 2011 Handbook of International Public Sector Accounting Pronouncements. In two volumes, the Handbook contains all current IPSASB pronouncements, including 31 accrual-based standards and the IPSASB's cash basis standard. The 2011 Handbook incorporates the amendments made as a result of the IPSASB’s 2010 Improvements Project, as well as?at the beginning of each accrual-based standard?a history of the amendments made to that standard.

    “The 2011 Handbook provides a comprehensive set of accounting requirements and guidance developed specifically for preparers of public sector financial statements,” said IPSASB Chair Andreas Bergmann. “In addition, the Handbook has been updated to reflect the IPSASB’s Improvements Project, completed in November 2010.”
