The Cost Accounting Standards Board has issued a notice regarding its fact-finding initiative for developing a staff discussion paper on CAS 413 Pension Adjustments for Extraordinary Events. As part of these efforts, the public is invited to attend two meetings that are scheduled for July 31 and August 14. To facilitate fact-finding, the CAS Board encourages the submission of written comments for consideration in the drafting of the SDP. The Federal Register notice issued today presents a series of topical questions for consideration in the development of comments. This is the first step in a four-step process that may result in a final rule. For further information, including details for registering for the meetings and submitting comments, see the Federal Register notice.
