Status

Issued: March 2000

Effective Date:

Coincides with the effective date of Statement 34 for the reporting government. That is, the requirements of this Interpretation are effective in three phases based on a government’s total annual revenues in the first fiscal year ending after June 15, 1999:

  • Phase 1 governments—with annual revenues of $100 million or more—should apply the requirements of this Interpretation in financial statements for periods beginning after June 15, 2001.
     
  • Phase 2 governments—with total annual revenues of $10 million or more but less than $100 million—should apply the requirements of this Interpretation in financial statements for periods beginning after June 15, 2002.
     
  • Phase 3 governments—with total annual revenues of less than $10 million—should apply the requirements of this Interpretation in financial statements for periods beginning after June 15, 2003.
This Interpretation should be simultaneously implemented with Statement 34. Earlier application is encouraged, if done in conjunction with early adoption of Statement 34.
