Thousands of U.S. state and local governments produce annual financial reports but because of the lack of standards for these reports, the ability to aggregate data and compare the financial performance of governmental entities is limited. Financial data standards could vastly improve the efficiency of government reporting by rendering reported data computer-readable and automatable.
Attend this free 60-minute webinar to learn about the opportunities to improve government reporting, and how financial data standards can help comptrollers, auditors, and treasurers, as well as end users of municipal data, including credit rating agencies, investors and others. You’ll learn about a program focused on developing these standards and how you can get involved in building the standards.
