PSAB Update and Planning Asset Retirement Obligations - 2
PSAB Update and Planning Asset Retirement Obligations - 2
This is part two of a two-part webinar series that will focus first on the key elements of the upcoming PSAB asset retirement obligations exposure draft (Part 1), followed by practical next steps and a project plan to address these changes (Part 2).

Part 2 Webinar - October 12, 2017
Objectives:
Following MFOA’s March webinar introducing the key elements of the asset retirement obligations exposure draft, this webinar will focus on practical next steps and a project plan for municipalities to prepare to meet these reporting requirements. While the new handbook section on asset retirement obligations is yet to be released in final, municipalities need to start now to assess impact since the implementation period is expected to be short.

KPMG’s team of subject matter experts will walk you through practical steps you can take to assess impact, and prepare to implement this new section.

What You will Learn: Questions we will look to answer in the webinar include
  • What does your municipality’s comprehensive plan to assess in-scope assets look like?
  • How should your project plan address Council’s information needs?
  • How do you effectively engage other internal stakeholders, and your financial statement auditors?

Who Should Attend:
Local government staff that are responsible for financial reporting related to asset retirement obligations.

Benefits of Attending: Participants can expect to
  • Gain a clear understanding of an effective project plan to assess the impact of asset retirement obligations
  • Engage key internal and external stakeholders strategically
  • Develop an effective communication strategy for Council
