Transferred entities will segregate the net costs of continuing and transferred operation for components of the transferred entity that (1) were not transferred from the legacy entity or (2) subsequent to the creation of the Department of Homeland Security were no longer included in the transferred entity's operations. Transferred entities will recognize a transfer-out for assets and liabilities transferred. Segregation of the net cost is required for both current and prior period net cost.
c. Department of Homeland Security and other receiving entities will recognize assets and liabilities received at book value and recognize a “transfer-in.” Financial statements based on the transfers and actual operations subsequent to the transfer will be presented.
