This standard, effective for reporting periods beginning after June 15, 2015, changed the way state and local governments report the value of investments and other financial instruments. This course explores case studies, real-world examples, and hands-on practice scenarios. Learn to apply the principles of this GASB standard to your governmental financial statements.
