SFFAS 54, Leases, is effective for fiscal years beginning on or after October 1, 2023. Federal agencies should start considering how their leasing transactions must be accounted for on the balance sheet as we move forward.

Danny Martinez, Government & Public Sector Accounting Advisory Lead, sat down with Ward Melhuish, Federal Government Sector Advisory Leader, to discuss the first of four steps federal agencies should follow in their SFFAS 54 implementation process.

  • Considerations when beginning the SFFAS 54 implementation process
  • Training to help understand SFFAS 54
  • Criteria for an SFFAS 54 implementation team
  • Takeaways from large federal project implementation teams
