The Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) recently issued Statement No. 102, which adds new disclosure requirements for governments. Numerous risks loom over state and local governments, which could impair their service delivery or hinder their capacity to fulfill obligations in a timely manner. While certain risks demand disclosure, many others that commonly plague these governments have not been disclosed because they were not explicitly required. To address this gap, Statement No. 102 was issued with the intention to provide stakeholders of government financial statements with indispensable details concerning risks that stem from limitations or concentrations, exposing governments to vulnerabilities.

Podcast host, Danny Martinez, Managing Director and Government & Public Sector Accounting Advisory Lead, is joined by Scott Anderson, Director, to dive into the challenges, changes and key considerations for GASB 102.
