Managing Public Sector Assets
About this learning event
We will tackle different types of assets: property, heritage and infrastructure assets, referring to the International Public Sector Accounting Standards (IPSAS) Board’s exposure drafts and standards. We will review case studies, and capture accounting challenges in terms of definition, identification, measurement, disclosure, and management; and how they constrain financial reporting on those assets. Recording for purposes of identification and stewardship will be one of the relevant aspects. By reviewing selected country cases, we will discuss various efforts and solutions to resolve the issue of assets recording in countries' national accounting frameworks and national regulatory settings. This event will be organized back-to-back with the international CEF-CIPFA conference, which will focus on digitalization in asset management process.
Senior public officials (policy makers); managers and directors of public institutions responsible for and engaged in PSAM processes; senior officials of institutions in charge of maintaining asset records and managing asset portfolios; heads of finance and accounting departments of line ministries; officials of SAIs
