GASB Reporting Standards
The Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) issued two statements in 2012 that substantially changed the accounting and financial reporting of pensions for Colorado PERA and PERA-affiliated employers. Additionally, GASB recently issued two new statements that will change the accounting and financial reporting of Other Postemployment Benefit Plans (OPEB) for PERA and PERA-affiliated employers. All financial disclosures made by PERA are contained in the audited Annual Comprehensive Financial Report (ACFR) that is published every June.A New Approach Under GASB (Pension)New GASB Guidance for Other Postemployment Benefit Plans (OPEB)
