IPSASB In pursuing its mission, the IFAC Board has established the International Public Sector Accounting Standards Board (IPSASB) to develop high–quality accounting standards for use by public sector entities around the world in the preparation of general purpose financial statements. The IFACB has determined that designation of the IPSASB as the responsible body for the development of such standards, under its own authority and within its stated terms of reference, best serves the public interest in achieving this aspect of its mission.
IPSASB The IPSASB functions as an independent standard-setting body under the auspices of IFAC. It achieves its objectives by: Issuing International Public Sector Accounting Standards (IPSASs); Promoting their acceptance and the international convergence to these standards; Publishing other documents which provide guidance on issues and experiences in financial reporting in the public sector.
The IPSASB's current activities are focussed on the development of International Public Sector Accounting Standards (IPSASs) for financial reporting by governments and other public sector entities (the Standards Project). The IPSASB's Standards Project was established in late 1996. The Preface to International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs) issued by the International Accounting Standards Board explains that IFRSs are designed to apply to the general purpose financial statements of all profit-oriented entities.
