Legislative and Regulatory Update | FASB and GASB Rules and Guidelines

Principles and Practices Board

Liaison with standards-setting bodies

The P&P Board works with the AICPA, the Financial Accounting Standards Board, and the Governmental Accounting Standards Board to address the unique financial reporting needs of healthcare organizations and improve consistency in accounting and financial reporting among different ownership types.

Position statements & issue analyses

Prior to issuance, a proposed position statement follows an extensive "due process." An exposure draft is released for public comment for at least 60 days. These comments are analyzed and reviewed by the P&P Board. The P&P Board also releases issue analyses, which provide short-term assistance by assembling current literature on emerging issues. An issue analysis is not sent out for public comment.

Access P&P Board position statements and issue analyses.  

To contact the P&P Board, or for further information, please call HFMA's Washington D.C., office at (202) 296-2920.
