Paper #2 (2-3 page paper)
The FASB has several ongoing projects that involve the review of standards and which may result in updates and/or revisions of financial accounting standards. You will select an ongoing FASB project after visiting the Technical Plan and Project Updates sections of the FASB Web site. In a paper, you will describe the project, its history (briefly), and the project’s status. The final section of your paper will describe the implications of the project’s adoption. For example, a paper might discuss a project that would result in accelerating the recognition of certain expenses and require additional disclosures.
