NCPERS Reply to GASB Invitation to Comment

July 21, 2009

The National Conference on Public Employee Retirement Systems will offer comments to GASB in response to its Invitation to Comment (ITC) on Pension Accounting and Financial Reporting. NCPERS kept the focus of its comments on the issues related to Market Value of Liabilities, although the scope of GASB’s ITC included other issues related to pension accounting and financial reporting.

We encourage all interested parties to submit comments to GASB  on the issues in the ITC. For those who are planning to submit comments, we have provided our submission in both a PDF document (as it will be submitted to GASB) and in a white page Word format to use as you see fit. For the PDF version, please click here. For the Word version, please click here.

The deadline to provide comments to GASB is July 31, 2009.  To view the Plain Language Supplement of the ITC, please click here.
