SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

This Notice indicates the availability of the following four documents: thirteenth Statement of Federal Financial Accounting Standards (SFFAS), “Deferral of Paragraph 65.2—Material Revenue-Related Transactions Disclosures,” recommended by the Federal Accounting Standards Advisory Board (FASAB) and adopted in its entirety by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) on February 5, 1999; fourteenth Statement of Federal Financial Accounting Standards (SFFAS), “Amendments to Deferred Maintenance Reporting,” recommended by the Federal Accounting Standards Advisory Board (FASAB) and adopted in its entirety by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) on June 8, 1999; fifteenth SFFAS, “Management's Discussion and Analysis,” recommended by FASAB and adopted in its entirety by OMB on August 12, 1999; and third Statement of Federal Financial Accounting Concepts (SFFAC), “Management's Discussion and Analysis,” recommended by FASAB and adopted in its entirety by OMB on June 8, 1999.

Under a Memorandum of Understanding among the General Accounting Office, the Department of the Treasury, and OMB on Federal Government Accounting Standards, the Comptroller General, the Secretary of the Treasury, and the Director of OMB decide upon accounting principles and standards after considering the recommendations of FASAB. After agreement to specific principles and standards, a notice of document availability is published in the Federal Register and distributed throughout the Federal Government.

On September 30, the FASAB Principals signed a revised MOU agreeing that future FASAB statements will become final 90 days after FASAB has submitted a proposed standard to each of the three FASAB Principals, so long as no Principal objects during the 90-day period. OMB, GAO, and Treasury would continue to have veto power over any FASAB action and, in addition, they would maintain their statutory authority to establish and adopt accounting standards for the Federal Government.

Under this new agreement, FASAB will be responsible for the Federal Register notification process for future statements. The four statements in this notice were approved prior to September 30 and are being processed under the previous procedures. Two additional statements, also approved prior to September 30, will be forwarded by OMB within the next few weeks for publication in the Federal Register.

This Notice is available on the OMB home page on the Internet which is currently located at http://www.whitehouse.gov/​WH/​EOP/​omb, under the caption “Federal Register Submissions.”
