Description: 

With the implementation of GASB's pension and other postemployment benefit (OPEB) standards, some of the largest numbers and most detailed disclosures in a government's financial statements are calculated by actuaries. Yet, accountants and auditors must understand and work with these numbers - and the professionals who calculate them. In this session you will hear from actuaries and accountants about their respective roles and how to most effectively manage inter-dependency to facilitate timely and reliable pension and OPEB reporting.
