Public Sector Standard Setters Forum

IPSASB 2.0: Taking it to the Next Level

Dates: September 19-20, 2022 (COMPLETED)

IPSASB 2022 Forum

Adoption and implementation of accrual accounting and the use of IPSAS are on the rise around the world, but each jurisdiction faces its own implementation challenges. Through the IPSASB’s current 5-year Strategy, by the end of 2023, up-to-date guidance will be available for the majority of the key areas in public sector financial reporting. So the question of where IPSASB’s next strategy should focus now needs consideration, including the potential impact of sustainability reporting. 

The IPSASB's 4th Public Sector Standard Setters Forum will provide a valuable opportunity for public sector accounting standards setters to build dialogue, exchange ideas, and discuss critical issues with other public sector standard setters and the IPSASB. Forum participants will be directly involved in scoping the IPSASB’s new guidance projects and in shaping its next 5-year strategy.  

The IPSASB's 2022 Forum, IPSASB 2.0: Taking it to the Next Level, will be held September 19 and 20 in Cascais, Portugal hosted by the Ordem dos Contabilistas Certificados (Order of Certified Accountants).

The Forum is an exceptional opportunity to build connections with and gain insights from the unique experiences and expertise of standard setters around the world.
