The only book to encompass the many new laws and requirements in federal government accounting and financial management.

For the first time in decades, federal accounting practices have been altered by significant changes from Congress and regulatory agencies, as well as the Federal Accounting Standards Board (FASB). New laws have introduced improvements and new requirements that accountants and financial managers need to know in order to comply with federal government policies and procedures. Here is the only book that captures all of the recent revisions, including the changes by the new FASB and the Chief Financial Officers Act. Describing what, why, when, and how the federal government performs its financial management, Federal Accounting Handbook is written in nontechnical language for all financial and accounting professional conducting business with the government.

Cornelius E. Tierney, CPA (Washington, DC), is a respected professor of accounting at the School of Business and Public Management at George Washington University.
