GAO-07-1173G: 

August 28, 2007: 

To Audit Officials, Agency CFOs, And Others Interested In Federal 
Financial Auditing, Accounting, And Reporting: 

This letter transmits the new volume 3 of the Government Accountability 
Office (GAO) and the President’s Council on Integrity and Efficiency 
(PCIE) Financial Audit Manual (FAM). GAO and the PCIE issued the joint 
FAM in July 2001. The FAM presents a methodology to perform financial 
statement audits of federal entities in accordance with professional 
standards. We have updated the FAM for significant changes that have 
occurred in auditing financial statements in the U.S. government
since the last major revisions to the FAM were issued in July 2004. 

To help the FAM continue to meet the needs of the federal audit 
community and the public it serves, GAO and the PCIE created a joint 
FAM Working Group. The Group is comprised of auditors from GAO and 
several Offices of the Inspectors General experienced in conducting 
audits of federal entity financial statements. Through a collaborative 
effort, the FAM Working Group prepared an exposure draft of a new FAM 
Volume 3 that contains accounting, reporting, and disclosure 
checklists. These checklists are intended to assist federal entities 
and their auditors in documenting financial statement conformity with 
professional standards. 

On June 29, 2007, we issued the exposure draft of FAM Volume 3 for a 30-
day public comment period that ended on July 30, 2007. We received 
minor comments which have been considered in this issued version of FAM 
Volume 3. We are also working on revisions to FAM Volumes 1 and 2, 
which contain the audit methodology. We plan to issue exposure drafts 
for public comment on these volumes shortly. 

The revisions to the FAM are primarily due to changes in (1) 
professional auditing and attestation standards of the Auditing 
Standards Board of the American Institute of Certified Public 
Accountants (AICPA); (2) GAO’s Government Auditing Standards; (3) 
Office of Management and Budget (OMB) audit and reporting guidance; (4) 
Federal Accounting Standards Advisory Board (FASAB) accounting 
standards; and (5) laws and regulations. 

Summary of Major Revisions and Improvements for FAM Volume 3: 

FAM Volume 3 incorporates FASAB accounting concepts and standards 
issued through May 31, 2007, including new requirements in accounting, 
reporting, and disclosure for social insurance, heritage assets and 
stewardship land, and earmarked funds. It also includes financial 
reporting guidance provided by OMB Circular No. A-136, Financial
Reporting Requirements, (June 29, 2007). Volume 3 has been redesigned 
to improve effectiveness and consists of the following two checklists: 

FAM 2010 – Federal Accounting Checklist: 

FAM 2020 – Federal Reporting and Disclosure Checklist: 

These checklists are tools that may be used by entities and auditors to 
document conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles 
(U.S. GAAP). The use of these checklists is a policy decision to be 
made by each organization. However, auditors should document the 
alternative means for determining whether the entity’s financial 
statements conform with U.S. GAAP. Major changes to improve efficiency 
are: 

* Two checklists have been created to spread completion and review work 
over the entire audit period, rather than performing all of this work 
at year end. Previously, FAM 1050 included all of this information in 
one checklist that created a difficult process to complete at the end 
of the audit. The new FAM 2010 contains questions on federal accounting 
that entities may complete during the year and auditors may review as 
part of interim audit work. The new FAM 2020 contains questions on year
end reporting and disclosure that entities may complete when they 
prepare their annual financial statements and auditors may review 
during the reporting phase of the audit. 

* Only those sections of the detailed checklists that are applicable to 
the entity’s financial statements need detailed completion. Those areas 
that are not applicable or not significant are simply documented one 
time, thus eliminating the need to read and evaluate each individual 
question. 

* The checklists are better organized, with accounting issues grouped 
by line item and reporting and disclosure issues grouped by financial 
statement, footnote, and other required supplemental disclosures to 
reduce overlap and duplication. FAM Volume 3 supersedes FAM 1050, 
Checklist for Federal Accounting, Reporting, and Disclosures (July 
2004), and can be used to prepare and audit federal entity financial 
statements for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2007.

2010 – Checklist for Federal Accounting: 

Section I – Overview: 

Introduction: 

The Chief Financial Officers (CFO) Act of 1990 and the Government 
Management Reform Act of 1994 (GMRA) require that agencies’ chief 
financial officers submit annual reports to their agency heads and to 
the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). These annual reports are to 
contain audited financial statements of their agencies. The financial
statements are to be presented in conformity with U. S. generally 
accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP). [Footnote 1] 

The previous checklist, FAM 1050, Checklist for Federal Accounting, 
Reporting, and Disclosures (July 2004), included guidance for 
accounting, reporting, and disclosures. This checklist has been revised 
and is separated into two separate checklists: FAM 2010, Checklist for 
Federal Accounting and FAM 2020, Checklist for Federal Reporting and
Disclosures. FAM 2010 provides guidance for federal accounting that 
entities may complete during the year and auditors may review the 
completed checklist during interim audit work. FAM 2020 provides 
guidance for year end reporting and disclosure that entities may 
complete when they prepare their annual financial statements and
auditors may review the completed checklist during the reporting phase 
of the audit. 

These checklists are being issued to assist (i) federal entities in 
preparing their financial statements in accordance with U.S. GAAP, and 
(ii) auditors in auditing them in accordance with U.S. generally 
accepted government auditing standards (GAGAS). Neither the entities 
nor the auditors are required to use this checklist and may develop
their own checklists. However, entities should document how they are 
satisfied that their financial statements conform with U.S. GAAP. 
Likewise, auditors should document the basis for accepting that the 
entity’s financial statements conform with U.S. GAAP if they do not use 
the checklist. 

The checklist provides a systematic, organized, and structured approach 
to preparing or reviewing federal entity financial statements. While 
the questions contained in the checklist are taken from authoritative 
sources, the checklist itself is not authoritative, nor is it 
comprehensive. Preparers and auditors may also consult financial 
management regulations and policies for their individual entity, as 
these regulations and policies may have guidance when standards allow 
alternatives or management flexibility, such as for property 
capitalization limits. 

Checklist Organization: 

In order to facilitate the completion of the checklist, an index of 
relevant accounting requirements is included in the following section. 
The preparer uses the index to determine those areas that apply to the 
entity. The checklist is divided into 10 sections as follows: 

Section II – General Accounting Item: 
Section III – Assets: 
Section IV – Liabilities: 
Section V – Net Position and Related Changes: 
Section VI – Net Cost: 
Section VII – Budgetary Resources: 
Section VIII – Custodial Activity: 
Section IX – Required Supplementary Stewardship Information: 
Section X – Social Insurance: 
Section XI – Credit Reform: 

Authoritative Guidance: 

Each question in this guide is referenced to a source. The sources 
cited are (1) Federal Accounting Standards Advisory Board (FASAB) 
Statements of Federal Financial Accounting Concepts (SFFAC), (2) FASAB 
Statements of Federal Financial Accounting Standards (SFFAS), and (3) 
OMB Circular No. A-136, Financial Reporting Requirements. Because this 
checklist is for the federal entity reporting level, and is not for the 
financial report of the U.S. government, certain sources are excluded.

Also included in this checklist is FASAB’s Implementation Guide to 
Accounting for Revenue and Other Financing Sources, (June 1996), and 
OMB Circular No. A-136, Financial Reporting Requirements, (June 29, 
2007), that provides detailed requirements for the form and content of 
entity financial statements. 

FASAB interpretations and technical bulletins are not covered in this 
checklist; consult this material as necessary for guidance on specific 
situations. Furthermore, preparers and auditors should document how the 
entity complied with any new standards issued after SFFAS 32. 

How to Use the Index to the Checklist: 

The preparer completes the index to FAM 2010, Checklist for Federal 
Accounting prior to completing the detailed checklist. For each 
category of accounting considerations listed in the index on the next 
two pages, the preparer indicates whether it is either applicable (Y) 
to the entity’s financial statements, or is not applicable (NA). 
Complete only those sections of the detailed checklist that are 
applicable to the entity’s financial statements. If the entity has an 
insignificant amount of transactions or balances for a section, it may 
decide not to complete that section. It may document that decision by
indicating “not significant” (NS). Those areas that are not applicable 
or not significant are not considered further, thus eliminating the 
need to read and evaluate each individual question. For example, many 
federal agencies do not administer loan, loan guarantee, or loan 
insurance programs and, therefore, do not have credit program
receivables and related property. Consequently, the questions on these 
receivables, property, and subsidies would not apply. 

How to Use the Detailed Checklist: 

To the right of each question are two columns. The first column 
provides for a “yes,” “no,” or “N/A” (not applicable) answer to each 
question. The second column provides for an explanation of the answer 
to each question. 

A “yes” answer indicates that the financial statements contain the 
information asked by the question. This would include immaterial items 
if the entity elected to disclose them. For each “yes” answer, include 
in the explanation column the page number or location in the financial 
statements where the information is found. Also, provide any other
information pertinent to the question and the response in the 
explanation column. 

A “no” answer indicates that the information asked for in the question 
is not included in the financial statements, notes, or supplementary 
information, respectively. This would include immaterial items that 
need not be disclosed. Describe in the explanation column or note why 
the information is not included and whether this causes the financial
statements to not be in conformity with U.S. GAAP. 

An “N/A” answer might indicate that the question does not apply to the 
federal entity. Describe in the explanation column or note why this 
information is not applicable. 

Completion and Review of the Checklists: 

Preparers of entity financial statements may complete the checklists to 
document that applicable accounting, reporting, and disclosure items 
have been addressed, including those contained in OMB Circular No. A-
136. Auditors generally should then review the checklists for 
completeness and accuracy.

Fund Balance with Treasury (1 - 6): 
[A federal entity's fund balance with the Treasury is the aggregate 
amount of funds in the entity's accounts with Treasury for which the 
entity is authorized to make expenditures and pay liabilities. Fund 
balance with Treasury includes clearing account balances and the dollar 
equivalent of foreign currency account balances. For the reporting 
entity, a fund balance with Treasury is an asset but for Treasury
it is a liability. From the perspective of the federal government as a 
whole, the fund balance is neither an asset nor a liability as it 
eliminates in consolidation. However, it represents a commitment from 
the Treasury to make resources available to federal departments, 
agencies, programs, and other entities. (SFFAS 1, par. 31 & 32)]. 

1) Does fund balance with Treasury include: 
a) clearing account balances; 
b) balances for direct loan and loan guarantee activities held in the 
credit reform program, financing, and liquidating accounts; 
c) funds actually borrowed from Treasury under statutory authority, 
and; 
d) the dollar equivalent of foreign currency account balances?
(SFFAS 1, par. 32 & 35); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];

stewardship purposes [Footnote 20] as internal use software and
capitalize it to the extent such software meets criteria for general 
PP&E? (SFFAS 10, par. 21); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

163) Is computer software that is integrated into and necessary to 
operate general PP&E, [Footnote 21] rather than perform a separate

Liabilities in General (1 - 2): 
[Liabilities of the federal agencies are reported under two major 
categories: (1) liabilities covered by budgetary resources [Footnote 
23] and (2) liabilities not covered by budgetary resources. [Footnote 
24] Within each of these two categories, liabilities are classified as 
(1) intra-governmental liabilities, which are amounts owed to other 
federal entities or (2) governmental liabilities, which are amounts 
owed to nonfederal entities by the federal government or an entity 
within the federal government. (SFFAS 1, par. 21; SFFAS 5, note 1 in 
summary)].

25] and measurable [Footnote 26] future outflows or other sacrifices of 
resources arising from one or more events from: 
a) past exchange transactions; 
b) government-related events, such as a federal entity accidentally 
causing damage to private property; 
c) government-acknowledged events, such as natural disasters, for which
the government has taken formal responsibility for the related costs,
and;

Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

11) Does the entity use the applicable Treasury borrowing rate to 
determine the discount rate charged on a capital lease unless: 
a) it is practicable for the lessee to learn the implicit rate computed 
by the lessor, and; 
b) the implicit rate is less than the Treasury borrowing rate? (SFFAS 
5, par. 45); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

12) During the lease term, is each minimum lease payment allocated 
between a reduction of the obligation and interest expense so as to 
produce a constant periodic rate of interest on the remaining balance 
of the liability? (SFFAS 5, par. 46);

amortization under the interest and straight-line methods is immaterial?
(SFFAS 5, par. 50); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

17) If the entity has issued variable value securities of unknown

Pensions, Other Retirement Benefits, and Postemployment Benefits (20 - 
24): 
[Federal employee and veterans benefits include the actuarial portion 
of pensions, other retirement benefits, and other postemployment 
benefits. (SFFAS 1, par. 83 & 84; SFFAS 5, par. 56) 

In the context of accounting for pensions, other retirement benefits 
(ORB), and other postemployment benefits, the “administrative entity” 
manages and accounts for the pension or other employee plan, while the 
“employer entity” employs federal workers and generates employee costs, 
for which it would typically receive a salary and expense 
appropriation. (SFFAS 5, par. 57, note 38) 

The “aggregate entry age normal” actuarial cost method is one under 
which the expenses or liabilities arising from the actuarial present 
value of projected pension benefits are allocated on a level basis over 
the earnings or the service of the group between entry age and assumed 
exit ages. The portion of the actuarial present value allocated to a 
valuation year is called “normal cost.” (SFFAS 5, par. 64)]. 

20) Is the aggregate entry age normal actuarial cost method used to 
calculate, for the administrative entity financial statements, the 
liabilities arising from pension and ORB expenses? (SFFAS 5, par. 64 & 
82); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

21) If other actuarial cost methods are used because the results are 
not materially different, does the entity provide an explanation why 
aggregate entry age normal is not used? (SFFAS 5, par. 64 & 82); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

22) Does the administrative entity report pension and ORB assets 
separately from liabilities as opposed to netting them? (SFFAS 5, par. 
68 & 85); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

23) Does the administrative entity carry pension and ORB assets at 
their acquisition cost, adjusted for amortization, if appropriate? 
(SFFAS 5, par. 85); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

24) Does the employer entity recognize the long-term other 
postemployment benefits liability as the present value of future
payments discounted at the Treasury borrowing rate for securities of 
similar maturity? (SFFAS 5, par. 95); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

Other Liabilities (25 - 48): 
[Unless they are reported separately, other liabilities include 
liabilities not recognized in other categories. They may include, but 
are not limited to: capital leases, insurance, advances and 
prepayments, deposit funds held in escrow, accrued liabilities related 
to ongoing continuous expenses such as federal employee salaries and 
accrued employee annual leave, and estimated losses for claims and
other contingencies. Claims and other contingencies include indemnity
agreements, adjudicated claims, and commitments to international 
institutions. (SFFAS 1, par. 83-86)]. 

25) Do all federal insurance and guarantee programs (except social 
insurance and loan guarantee programs) recognize a liability for unpaid 
claims incurred resulting from insured events that have occurred as of 
the reporting date? (SFFAS 5, par. 104); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

26) Do federal insurance programs accrue a liability when an existing 
condition, situation, or set of circumstances involving uncertainty as 
to possible loss exists, and where: 
a) the uncertainty will be resolved when one or more probable future 
events either occur or fail to occur, and; 
b) future outflow or other sacrifice of resources is probable and
measurable? (SFFAS 5, par. 104 & 108); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

27) Is a liability recognized for future life insurance policy benefits 
(such as death or disability)? (SFFAS 5, par. 104); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

28) When insurance payments and losses extend beyond the current year, 
does the liability at the end of the year represent net losses 
calculated on a present-value basis to reflect the time value of money? 
(SFFAS 5, par. 109); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

[The liability for future policy benefits is the present value of 
future outflows to be paid to (or on behalf of) policyholders, less the 
present value of future related premiums. In general, for whole life 
policies, the liability for future policy benefits should be no less 
than the cash surrender value that accrues to the benefit of the
policyholder. (SFFAS 5, par. 116)]. 

29) Are liabilities for future benefits of whole life insurance 
policies recorded as prescribed by private sector standards (i.e., 
Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) Statement of Accounting

c) any premium deficiency? [Footnote 29] (SFFAS 5, par. 118 & 120); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

31) Has the entity compared the liability for future policy benefits 
using actuarial assumptions applicable at the time the contract was 
made (contract assumptions) with the liability for future policy 
benefits using assumptions that consider: 
a) current economic conditions (i.e., current and expected investments
and expected long-term yields), and b) experience (i.e., mortality, 
morbidity, and termination rates)? (SFFAS 5, par. 119); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

32) Does the agency record “unearned revenue” as a liability if it 
receives advances or progress payments prior to receipt of cash, and it 
records the amounts? (SFFAS 7, par. 37); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

33) Are amounts payable for refunds, refund offsets, [Footnote 30] and 
drawbacks [Footnote 31] recognized as liabilities when measurable and

payment? (SFFAS 7, par. 57); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

36) For claims filed for refunds where specific administrative actions 
are required before payments can be made, are the amounts excluded from 
being recognized as a liability if the required administrative actions 
are not yet complete as of the close of the reporting period, even if 
reasonably estimable? (SFFAS 7, par. 58.A); 

37) Are unasserted claims for refunds by taxpayers or importers, such 
as unfiled claims for refunds or drawbacks for which no claim has been 
filed, excluded from liabilities, even if reasonably estimable? (SFFAS 
7, par. 58.B); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

38) Are amounts voluntarily made as deposits, such as those made to 
stop the accrual of interest or those made pending settlements and 
judgments, separately recognized as deposit liabilities? (SFFAS 7, par. 
59); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

[A loss contingency is an existing condition, situation, or set of 
circumstances involving uncertainty as to possible loss to an entity. 
The uncertainty should ultimately be resolved when one or more future 
events occur or fail to occur. (SFFAS 5, par. 35)] 

39) Does the entity recognize estimated losses for claims or other 
contingencies if all of the following conditions apply: 
a) a past event or exchange transaction has occurred; 
b) a future outflow or other sacrifice of resources is probable, 
[Footnote 32] and c) the future outflow or sacrifice of resources is 
measurable (e.g., the federal entity’s management determines an

12, par. 10 & 11); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty].

within a range of amounts is a better estimate than any other amount 
within the range, is that amount recognized? (SFFAS 5, par. 39); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

41) When determining an estimated liability, if no amount within a 
range of amounts is a better estimate than any other amount, is the 
minimum amount in the range recognized? (SFFAS 5, par. 39); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

42) Does the entity separately recognize a liability for environmental 
clean-up costs [Footnote 33] for PP&E if; 
a) they are related to a past transaction or event, and; 
b) the related costs are probable and measurable? (SFFAS 5, par. 38 & 
SFFAS 6, par. 91-93); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

43) When clean-up costs are paid, are the payments recognized as a 
reduction in the liability for clean-up costs? (SFFAS 6, par. 100); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

44) If clean-up costs have not been previously recognized, is a 
liability recognized for the portion of the estimated total clean-up 
cost that is attributable to either the portion of the physical 
capacity used or the portion of the estimated useful life that has 
passed since the PP&E was placed into service? (SFFAS 6, par. 104-106); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

45) Are any subsequent changes (made in periods following 
implementation) in estimated total clean-up cost immediately expensed 
(if costs are to be recovered though user charges) and included in the
related liability balance? (SFFAS 6, par. 104); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

46) When clean-up costs are recognized for the first time, is the

beneficiaries but for which they have not withdrawn funds from the 
federal Unemployment Trust Fund (UTF) as of the fiscal year end, and; 
b) estimated amounts to be withdrawn from UTF and benefits paid by 
states and territories after fiscal year end for compensatory days 
occurring prior to fiscal year end? (SFFAS 17, par. 23); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty].

Cost Accounting – Overall Requirements (1 - 7): 
[Managerial cost accounting is the process of accumulating, measuring, 
analyzing, interpreting, and reporting cost information useful to both 
internal and external groups concerned with the way in which the 
organization uses, accounts for, safeguards, and controls its resources 
to meet its objectives. (SFFAS 4, par. 42) 

A cost accounting "system" is a continuous and systematic cost 
accounting process that may be designed to accumulate and assign costs 
to a variety of objects routinely or as desired by management. (SFFAS 
4, par. 74) 

Cost finding is a method for determining the cost of producing goods or 
services using appropriate procedures, for example, special cost 
studies or analyses. (SFFAS 4, par. 76)].

II.4.4.3); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty].

accumulation, analysis, interpretation, and communication of cost
information? (SFFAS 4, par. 68-70); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

3) As a means of providing cost information in an efficient and 
reliable manner on a continuing basis, does the entity regularly 
accumulate and report the costs of its activities either by means of 
cost accounting systems or cost finding techniques? (SFFAS 4, par. 68-
70); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

4) Does the reporting entity's cost accounting system or cost finding 
technique: 
a) collect cost information by responsibility segments identified by
management; b) define outputs for each responsibility segment; 
c) measure the full cost (including the cost of goods or services 
provided by other entities) of outputs so that total operational costs 
and total unit costs of outputs can be determined; 
d) use a costing methodology (e.g., activity-based, job order, standard
costing) that is appropriate for management’s needs and the operating 
environment; 
e) provide information needed to determine and report service efforts
and accomplishments and information necessary to meet the requirements 
of GPRA (or interface with a system that provides such information); 
f) report cost information in a timely manner and on a regular basis
consistent with the needs of management and budgetary and financial 
reporting requirements; 
g) rely on the United States Standard General Ledger as a basis for
integrating its cost information with its financial accounting; 
h) supply cost data precise enough to provide reliable and useful
information to internal and external users in making evaluations or
decisions but also avoid unnecessary precision and refinement of data, 
and; 
i) accommodate management’s cost information needs? (SFFAS 4, par. 71); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];

par. 79 & 88); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

Cost Accounting – Full Cost (11 - 18): 
[Full cost is the sum of all costs that contribute to an output and 
includes direct and indirect costs regardless of funding sources. It 
also includes the costs of supporting services provided by other 
responsibility segments or entities. (SFFAS 4, par. 89) 

Output is any product or service generated from the consumption of 
resources. (SFFAS 4, par. 89) Direct costs are costs that can be 
specifically identified with an output. (SFFAS 4, par. 90) Indirect 
costs are costs of resources that are jointly or commonly used to 
produce two or more types of outputs, but are not specifically
identifiable with any of the outputs. (SFFAS 4, par. 91)]. 

11) Does the entity include all direct costs in the full cost of 
outputs, including: 
a) salaries and other benefits for employees who work directly on the
output; 
b) materials and supplies used in the work; 
c) various costs associated with office space, equipment, facilities, 
and utilities that are used exclusively to produce the output, and; 
d) costs of goods or services received from other segments or entities 
that are used to produce the output? (SFFAS 4, par. 90); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

12) In the full cost of outputs, does the reporting entity include:

resources is probable and measurable on the basis of an event
occurring on or before the accounting date? (SFFAS 4, par. 96-97); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

15) Are the full costs of transfer payments for welfare, insurance, 
grants, and other public assistance programs separately identified
from the costs of operating such programs? (SFFAS 4, par. 98-101); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];

from the full cost of goods and services and treated as a program cost 
[Footnote 41] or period expense? (SFFAS 4, par. 103); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

18) Are nonproduction costs incurred by responsibility segments, such as
reorganization costs and nonrecurring clean-up costs resulting from 
facility abandonment, excluded from the full cost of outputs and 
treated as current-period expenses? (SFFAS 4, par. 104); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

Cost Accounting – Inter-entity Costs (19 - 23): 
[Within the federal government, some reporting entities rely on other 
federal entities to help them achieve their missions. Often, this 
involves support services, but may include the provision of goods. The 
reporting entity generally should account for the full cost of goods or 
services provided to or received from other federal entities. (SFFAS 4, 
par. 105-108) 

Costs between reporting entities that are part of the same department 
or larger reporting entity (such as bureaus, components or 
responsibility segments within a department) are considered intra-
departmental costs. Reporting entities should account for imputed intra-
departmental costs in accordance with the full cost provisions of SFFAS 
4. (FASAB Interpretation No. 6, par. 4 & 8)]. 

Question 19 is effective for reporting periods beginning prior to 
September 30, 2008. 

19) Does the entity recognize specific interentity costs as identified 
by OMB whether or not the entity is fully reimbursed? [Footnote 42]
(SFFAS 4, par 110);

Explanation: [Empty]. 

Question 20 is effective for reporting periods beginning after 
September 30, 2008. Early implementation is encouraged.

not the entity is fully reimbursed? [Footnote 43] (SFFAS 4, par 111-112;
SFFAS 30, par. 23; OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 53, section II.4.4.3); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

21) Is recognition of inter-entity costs that are not fully reimbursed 
limited to material items based on an assessment of the importance of 
the individual inter-entity transaction in light of: 
a) significance to the entity; 
b) directness of relationship to the entity’s operations, and
c) identifiability? (SFFAS 4, par. 112); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

22) Are the costs of broad, general support services provided by a 
federal entity to other federal entities excluded from the costs of the 
recipient entity unless such services are integral to the receiving 
entity (e.g., Treasury check-writing services provided for the Social 
Security Administration)? (SFFAS 4, par. 112); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

23) If the receiving entity cannot get complete information on the full 
cost of goods or services provided by another reporting entity, does 
the receiving entity use a reasonable estimate of the cost of the goods 
or services received or the market value of the goods or services 
received if an estimate of the cost cannot be made? (SFFAS 4, par. 
109); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

Cost Accounting – Costing Methodology (24 - 30): 
[Cost accumulation is the process of collecting cost data in an 
organized way by responsibility segment. (SFFAS 4, par. 117) Cost 
assignment is a process that identifies accumulated costs with 
reporting periods and cost objects. Three methods of cost assignment 
are direct tracing, cause and effect, and allocating costs on a 
reasonable and consistent basis. (SFFAS 4, par. 120) Cost object or cost
objective is an activity, output, or item the cost of which is to be 
measured. (SFFAS 4, par. 121) 

Entities are not required to use a particular costing system or costing
methodology, but the costing system or methodology used should be 
appropriate to the entity's operating environment and used 
consistently. Four examples of acceptable (but not necessarily mutually 
exclusive) costing methodologies are activity-based costing, job order 
costing, process costing, and standard costing. (SFFAS 4, par. 144-
147)]. 

24) Is the entity's accounting system capable of identifying costs 
within responsibility segments? (SFFAS 4, par. 118); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

25) Are the costs of resources used by responsibility segments 
classified by type of resource, such as costs of employees, materials, 
capital, utilities, and rent? (SFFAS 4, par. 119); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

26) Are data on the quantity of units (e.g., staff days, gallons of 
gasoline consumed) related to the various cost categories maintained,
when appropriate and feasible? (SFFAS 4, par. 119); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

27) How are costs assigned to outputs: 
a) directly tracing costs used in the production of an output, wherever
economically feasible, [Footnote 44] or; 
b) assigning costs on a cause-and-effect basis, or; 
c) allocating costs on a reasonable and consistent basis? (SFFAS 4, 
par. 124); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];

Revenues (31 - 44): 
[Revenues are inflows of resources that the government demands, earns, 
or receives by donation. Revenue comes from two sources: exchange 
transactions and nonexchange transactions. (SFFAS 7, par. 30) 

Exchange (or earned) revenues arise when a government entity provides 
goods or services to the public or to another government entity for a 
price. (SFFAS 7, par. 30) Nonexchange revenues arise primarily from the 
government’s sovereign power to demand payments from the public (e.g., 
taxes, duties, fines), and also include donations. (SFFAS 7, par. 30) 

The net cost of a program is the difference between its gross costs and 
related exchange revenues. (OMB Circular A-136, p. 54, section 
II.4.4.5) The net cost of operations by a reporting entity consists of 
gross cost incurred by the reporting entity less any exchange revenue 
earned from its activities. (OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 54, section 
II.4.4.8)]. 

31) Is collected custodial nonexchange revenue that is legally retained

Explanation: [Empty]. 

34) Is exchange revenue recognized when
services are performed for transactions in which services are provided 
to the public or another government entity? (SFFAS 7, par. 34 & 36 
(a)); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

35) If specific goods or services are made to order under terms of a 
contract, is exchange revenue (and any probable loss) recognized in 
proportion to estimated total cost when goods and services are acquired
to fulfill the contract? (SFFAS 7, par. 36(b)); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

36) When goods are kept in inventory so that they are available to 
customers when ordered, is exchange revenue recognized when the goods 
are delivered to the customer? (SFFAS 7, par. 36(c)); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

37) If services are rendered continuously or the right to use an asset 
extends continually over time, is exchange revenue recognized in 
proportion to the passage of time or the use of the asset? (SFFAS 7, 
par. 36(d)); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

38) Is interest received on intra-governmental loans recognized as 
exchange revenue if the source of borrowed funds is predominately 
exchange revenue? (SFFAS 7, par. 36(d)); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

39) When an asset other than inventory is sold, is any gain (or loss) 
recognized when the asset is delivered to the purchaser? (SFFAS 7, par. 
36(e)); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

40) When advance fees or payments are received, such as for large-
scale, long-term projects, is revenue recognized only as the cost of 
providing the corresponding goods and services are incurred? (SFFAS 7, 
par. 37); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

41) Is the measurement of revenue from exchange transactions based on 
the actual price received or receivable under established pricing 
arrangements? (SFFAS 7, par. 38); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

42) To the extent that realization of the full amount of exchange 
revenue is not probable due to credit losses (caused by the failure of 
the debtor to pay the established or negotiated price), is an expense 
recognized and the allowance for bad debts increased, if the bad debts 
can be reasonably estimated? (SFFAS 7, par. 40); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

43) If the realization of the full amount of exchange revenue is not 
probable for reasons apart from credit losses (e.g., returns and 
allowances), is a provision made to reduce the recognized revenue (if
amounts can be reasonably estimated), with the provision recognized as 
a revenue adjustment? (SFFAS 7, par. 41); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

44) Is exchange revenue recognized regardless of whether the entity 
retains the revenue for its own use or transfers it to other entities? 
(SFFAS 7, par. 43); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

Pensions, Other Retirement, and Post Employment Benefit Costs (45 - 
68): 
[Pension benefits include all retirement, disability, and survivor 
benefits financed through a pension plan, including unfunded pension 
plans. Required federal payments to social insurance plans (i.e., 
Social Security and Medicare) and matching federal payments to defined 
contribution pension plans are also considered to be plan expenses. 
(SFFAS 5, par. 61) 

Costs of pensions and other retirement benefits (ORB), whether they are 
paid for in part or in total by other governmental entities, are 
included in the costs of program outputs. (SFFAS 4, par. 95)) 
Recognition of other postemployment benefits (OPEB) is linked to the 
occurrence of an OPEB event rather than the production of an output. 
OPEB costs are generally treated as period expenses. Special-purpose 
cost studies may distribute OPEB costs over a number of prior years to 
determine the cost of outputs OPEB recipients helped produce. (SFFAS 4,
par. 96 & 97) 

In accounting for pensions, ORB, and OPEB, the “administrative entity,” 
typically manages and accounts for the related assets and liabilities. 
The “employer entity” accounts for the related costs of pensions, ORB, 
and OPEB. For these costs the employer entity receives a salary and 
expense appropriation, imputes a financing source, or both. (SFFAS 5, 
par. 57, note 38) 

The “aggregate entry age normal” actuarial cost method is one under 
which the expenses or liabilities arising from the actuarial present 
value of projected pension benefits are allocated on a level basis over 
the earnings or the service of the group between entry age and assumed 
exit ages. The portion of the actuarial present value of pension plan 
and benefits and expenses that is allocated to a valuation year is 
called “normal cost.” (SFFAS 5, par. 64)]. 

45) Are pensions and ORB recognized as expenses at the time the 
employee’s services are rendered? (SFFAS 5, par. 59); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];

Explanation: [Empty]. 

47) Is the "aggregate entry age normal" actuarial cost method (or other 
actuarial cost method, if the results are not materially different and 
an explanation is provided) used to calculate pension expense, the 
liability for the administrative entity financial statements, and the
expense for the employer entity financial statements? (SFFAS 5, par. 
64); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

48) When using the "aggregate entry age normal" actuarial cost method, 
does the entity allocate pension expenses on the basis of a level 
percentage of earnings? (SFFAS 5, par. 64); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

49) Does the administrative entity base its actuarial assumptions for 
pension plans on the experience of the covered groups, longterm trends, 
and guidance of the Actuarial Standards Board? (SFFAS 5, par. 65); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

50) Does the administrative entity base its interest rate assumptions 
on the estimated long-term investment yield for the pension plan or, if 
the plan is not being funded, on some other appropriate long-term 
assumption (e.g., the federal long-term borrowing rate)? (SFFAS 5, par. 
66); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

51) When a new pension plan is initiated or a current one amended, does 
the administrative entity recognize all past and prior service costs 
[Footnote 46] or gains immediately, without amortization? (SFFAS 5, 
par. 69); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

52) Does the administrative entity recognize actuarial gains and losses 
[Footnote 47] immediately, without amortization? (SFFAS 5, par. 69); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

53) Does the administrative entity report pension plan revenue for the 
sum of contributions from: 
a) the employer; 
b) its employees, [Footnote 48] and; 
c) interest on the plan’s investments? (SFFAS 5, par. 73); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

54) Does the employer entity recognize a pension expense that equals 
the service cost (normal cost) for its employees for the accounting 
period, less the amount contributed by the employees, if any? (SFFAS 5, 
par. 74); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

55) Is the employer entity's pension expense balanced by (1) a decrease 
to its “fund balance with Treasury” for the amount of its contribution 
to the pension plan, if any; and if this does not equal the full pension
expense, by (2) an increase to an account representing an intra-
governmental financing source (e.g., “imputed financing expenses
paid by other agencies)?” (SFFAS 5, par. 75); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

56) If the employer entity is also the administrative entity, does it 
also report the liability [Footnote 49] and recognize the expense for 
all components of the pension plan's cost? (SFFAS 5, par. 71 & 76); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

[ORB includes all retirement benefits other than pension benefits. The 
predominant ORB expense in the federal government is retirement health 
benefits. (SFFAS 5, par. 58 & 79)]. 

57) Is the "aggregate entry age normal" actuarial cost method (or other 
actuarial cost method, if the results are not materially different and 
an explanation is provided) used to calculate the ORB expense and 
liability for the administrative entity financial statements and the 
expense for the employer entity financial statements? (SFFAS 5, par. 
82); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

58) Are expenses and other liabilities attributable to ORB expenses 
allocated based on the service provided by each employee? (SFFAS 5, 
par. 82); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

59) Do the amounts calculated for financial reports prepared for ORB 
plans reflect: 
a) general actuarial and economic assumptions that are consistent with
those used for pensions, and; 
b) a health care cost trend assumption that is consistent with Medicare
projections or other authoritative sources appropriate for the 
population covered by the plan? (SFFAS 5, par. 83); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

60) Does the administrative entity discount the projected ORB costs at 
the rate of expected return of plan assets, if the plan is being 
funded, or on some other long-term assumptions (e.g., the long-term 
federal government borrowing rate) for unfunded plans? (SFFAS 5, par. 
83); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty].

Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

62) When a new ORB plan is initiated or a current one amended, does the
administrative entity recognize all past and prior service costs or 
gains immediately, without amortization? (SFFAS 5, par. 86 & 87); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

63) Does the administrative entity recognize all actuarial gains and 
losses from changes in the ORB liability immediately, without 
amortization? (SFFAS 5, par. 86 & 87); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

64) Does the administrative entity report ORB revenue for the sum of 
contributions from the employer entity and its employees? (SFFAS 5, 
par. 89); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

65) Does the employer entity report ORB expenses equal to the service 
cost (normal cost) for its employees for the accounting period, less 
the amount contributed by the employees? (SFFAS 5, par. 90); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

66) Is the employer entity’s ORB expense balanced by either: 
a) a decrease to its “fund balance with Treasury” for the amount of its
contribution to the ORB plan, if any, or; 
b) an increase to an account representing an intra-governmental
imputed financing source (e.g., “imputed financing-expenses paid by
other entities”)? (SFFAS 5, par. 91); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty].

delivered) or upon use in the provision of a service, the related 
expense shall be recognized and the cost of those goods shall be 
removed from inventory. (SFFAS 3, par. 19) 

The cost of goods shall be removed from operating materials and 
supplies (i.e., the asset account) and reported as an operating expense 
in the period they are issued to an end user for consumption in normal 
operations. (SFFAS 3, par. 39)].

Property, Plant, and Equipment Costs (78 - 92): 
[A common expense related to PP&E that is included in the Statement of 
Net Cost is depreciation. Other PP&E-related expenses that are reported 
in the Statement of Net Cost include all current costs of acquiring and 
maintaining stewardship land and heritage assets (other than multiuse 
heritage assets.) (SFFAS 6, par. 35, & 69; SFFAS 16, par. 8) 

Depreciation expense is calculated through systematic and rational 
allocation of the cost of PP&E, less its estimated salvage or residual 
value, over its estimated useful life. A composite or group 
methodology, [Footnote 51] whereby the costs of PP&E are allocated 
using the same allocation rate, is permissible. (SFFAS 6, par. 35;

[Footnote 52] recognized as either a gain or a loss? (SFFAS 6, par. 
32); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

81) In the event that cash consideration is included in the exchange 
transaction with a nonfederal entity, is the cost of PP&E acquired

entity treat the acquisition cost as either the cost of stewardship 
land, heritage asset, or both based on its judgment? (SFFAS 29, par. 
37a); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

91) If stewardship land is acquired along with existing structures and 
the structure is to be used in operations (e.g., as general PP&E) but 
the value is significant or its acquisition is merely a byproduct of the
acquisition of the land, is the cost treated as an acquisition of 
stewardship land? (SFFAS 29, par. 37b); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

92) If stewardship land is acquired along with existing structures and 
the structure is significant and has an operating use (e.g., a 
constructed hotel or employee housing block), is the structure treated 
as general PP&E by identifying the cost attributable to general PP&E 
and segregated from the cost of the stewardship land acquired? (SFFAS
29, par. 37c); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

Clean-up Costs (93 - 100): 
[Clean-up costs are the costs of removing, containing, and/or disposing

Explanation: [Empty]. 

96) When PP&E is placed into service, does the entity recognize cleanup 
costs during each period that general PP&E is in operation, in a 
systematic and rational manner based on either: 
a) physical capacity of the PP&E, (e.g., expected usable landfill 
area), or; 
b) the estimated useful life of the associated PP&E (if physical 
capacity is not applicable or estimable)? (SFFAS 6, par. 97); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

97) Does recognition of the cleanup costs and the accumulation of the 
related liability begin on the date that the associated PP&E is placed 
into service, continue in each period that operation continues, and end
when the PP&E ceases operation? (SFFAS 6, par. 98); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty].

Explanation: [Empty]. 

Insurance and Subsidies Costs (103 - 106): 
[Federal insurance and guarantee programs are established to assume 
risks that private sector entities are unwilling or unable to assume or 
to subsidize the provision of insurance to achieve social objectives. 
For life insurance, a premium deficiency occurs if the liability for 
future policy benefits using current conditions exceeds the liability 
for future policy benefits using contract conditions. (SFFAS 5, par. 97 
& 120)]. 

103) If an insured event has occurred as of the financial statement 
reporting date, has the federal entity recognized an expense for all 
claims incurred during the period, including, when appropriate, those
incurred but not reported (IBNR) and contingencies that meet the 
criteria for recognition? (SFFAS 5, par. 104 & 109); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

104) Are changes in estimates of claim cost resulting from: 
(1) the present value calculations; 
(2) the continuous review process, and; 
(3) differences between the estimates and actual payments for claims,
recognized as charges against operations of the period in which the 
estimates are changed or payments are made? (SFFAS 5, par. 109); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

105) If the liability for future [life insurance] policy benefits using 
current conditions exceeds the liability for future policy benefits 
under contract conditions (resulting in a premium deficiency), is the
difference recognized as a charge to operations in the current period? 
(SFFAS 5, par. 120); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

106) Does the entity recognize an expense for social insurance 
[Footnote 53] benefits paid during the reporting period plus any 
increase (or less any decrease) in the liability for social insurance 
benefits due and payable to or on behalf of beneficiaries, from the end 
of the prior period to the end of the current period? (SFFAS 17, par. 
22); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty].

Section VII – Budgetary Resources: 

There are five questions in this section which relate to accounting for 
budgetary resources in the Statement of Budgetary Resources (SBR). 

Budgetary Resources (1 - 5): 
[Offsetting receipts are collections that are credited to general fund, 
special fund, or trust fund receipt accounts and that offset gross 
outlays. Unlike offsetting collections, which are credited to 
expenditure accounts and offset outlays at the account level, 
offsetting receipts are credited to receipt accounts and offset outlays
at the agency or governmentwide level. 

Offsetting receipts may be distributed or undistributed to agencies. 
Distributed offsetting receipts offset the outlays of the agency, while 
undistributed offsetting receipts offset governmentwide outlays. 
Distributed offsetting receipts typically offset the outlays of the 
agency that conducts the activity generating the receipts and the 
subfunction to which the activity is assigned. Offsetting receipts are
composed of proprietary receipts from the public, receipts from intra-
governmental transactions, and offsetting governmental receipts. (OMB 
Circular No. A-136, p. 70, section II.4.6.8)]. 

1) Do offsetting receipts include all distributed offsetting receipts 
for the entity? [Footnote 54] (OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 70, section 
II.4.6.8); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

2) Do offsetting receipts include entity receipt accounts for: 
a) Proprietary Receipts from the Public; 
b) Intrabudgetary Receipts Deducted by Agencies, and; 
c) Offsetting Governmental Receipts? (OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 70, 
section II.4.6.8); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

3) Is the amount of distributed offsetting receipts the aggregate of 
cash collected in these receipt accounts and reported to Treasury on a 
monthly basis? [Footnote 55] (OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 71, section 
II.4.6.8); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

4) Does the entity credit undistributed offsetting receipts to 
governmentwide outlay totals which results in an exclusion from the 
SBR? (OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 71, section II.4.6.8); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

5) In order to have consistency between the information presented in 
the SBR and the Budget of the United States Government, does the 
entity: 
a) post all changes, whether material or not, to OMB’s MAX A-11 budget
preparation system during the time frames provided by OMB, and; 
b) post all changes, whether material or not, to the Federal Agencies
Centralized Trial-balance System II (FACTS II) during the time period
specified for posting corrections to the budget information? (OMB 
Circular No. A-136, p. 33, section II.4.2, item 4); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

[End of section] 

Section VIII – Custodial Activity: 
Questions related to accounting for custodial activity in the financial 
statements are presented below. 

Caption: General; 
Question Numbers: 1. 

Caption: Sources of Collections; 
Question Numbers: 2 - 7. 

Caption: Dedicated Collections and Other Accompanying Information; 
Question Numbers: 8 - 12. 

General (1): 
[Collecting entities do not recognize as revenue those collections that 
have been or should be transferred to others as revenues. [Footnote 56] 
Rather, they shall account for sources and disposition of the 
collections as custodial activities. 

Custodial collections are normally nonexchange revenues, such as taxes 
and duties collected by the Internal Revenue Service and the U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection. (OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 73, section 
II.4.8.1)]. 

1) If the entity collects exchange revenue (e.g., rents and royalties) 
on behalf of other entities and recognizes virtually no costs in 
connection with earning that revenue, does the entity account for it as 
a custodial activity? (SFFAS 7, par. 45); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

2) Are transactions recognized as taxes and other nonexchange revenues 
from the public for:

contributions, excise taxes, estate and gift taxes, and customs duties; 
b) social insurance taxes and contributions paid by federal employees; 
c) deposits by states for unemployment trust funds; 
d) user fees and harbor maintenance trust fund payments; 
e) customs service fees; 
f) deposits of earnings from the Federal Reserve System; 
g) donations, except types of PP&E that are expensed; 
h) fines and penalties; 
i) penalties due to delinquent taxes in connection with custodial 
activity, and;

and then modify that with an accrual adjustment to determine the amount 
of revenue to be recognized? (SFFAS 7, par. 49 & 52); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

4) Except for deposits, are cash collections [Footnote 57] based on 
amounts actually received during the fiscal period including 
withholdings, estimated payments, final payments, and collections of 
receivables? (SFFAS 7, par. 50 & 59); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

5) Are the components of cash collections classified by source and 
nature of collection, such as by type of tax or duty? (OMB Circular No. 
A-136, p. 75, section II.4.8.3); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

6) Are cash refunds of nonexchange revenue based on refunds of taxes 
and duties during the period? (SFFAS 7, par. 51); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

7) Do cash refunds of nonexchange revenue for taxes and duties include 
refund offsets [Footnote 58] and drawbacks? [Footnote 59] (SFFAS 7, 
par. 51); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

Dedicated Collection and Other Accompanying Information (8 - 12): 
[Dedicated collections are funds held with the expectation that they 
will be applied to the purposes for which the funds were dedicated. 
Such funds include all funds within the budget classified as trust 
funds, those funds within the budget that are classified as “special 
funds” but that are similar in nature to trust funds, and those funds 
(inside or outside the budget) that are fiduciary in nature. (SFFAS 7, 
par. 83)]. 

Questions 8 - 10 are applicable to funds not meeting the definition of 
earmarked funds defined in SFFAS 27. 

8) Does the management of a reporting entity identify and track the 
receipts and expenditures of dedicated trust funds, "special funds," 
and fiduciary or deposit funds (both inside and outside the budget)
for which it is responsible? (SFFAS 7, par. 83); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

9) If revenues, other financing sources, or costs are associated with, 
but not legally allowable to a fund, does the larger reporting entity 
of which the fund is a component recognize them? (SFFAS 7, par. 86); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

10) If more than one reporting entity is responsible for carrying out a 
program financed with dedicated collections, does the entity with the 
largest share of the activity take responsibility for reporting all
revenues, other financing sources, assets, liabilities, and costs of 
the fund? (SFFAS 7, par. 87); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

11) If information on actual collections is not currently available 
from the collecting entity, do the trust funds that are legally 
entitled to receive only excise taxes that are actually collected by 
the collecting entity recognize revenue from excise taxes on the basis 
of assessments in lieu of excise taxes actually collected? (SFFAS 7,
par. 60.1); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

12) Is the amount of revenue recognized by the social security trust 
fund based on the best available information (i.e., on the basis of the 
higher of the amount of Internal Revenue Service (IRS) assessments or 
the amounts actually reported by employers to Social Security 
Administration)? (SFFAS 7, par. 60.2); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty].

Questions related to accounting for stewardship investments in the 
financial statements are presented below. 

Stewardship Investments (1 - 14): 
[Stewardship investments are substantial investments made by the federal
government for the benefit of the nation. When incurred, they are 
treated as expenses in calculating net cost, but they are also 
separately reported as RSSI to highlight the extent of investments that 
are made for long-term benefit. (SFFAS 8, par. 12) Stewardship 
investments include: 

* nonfederal physical property: federally financed (but not federally 
owned) purchases, construction, or major renovation of physical 
property owned by state and local governments, including major 
additions, alterations, and replacements, the purchase of major 
equipment; and the purchase or improvement of other physical assets. 
[Footnote 60] 
* human capital: expenses incurred for programs for education and 
training of the public [Footnote 61] that are intended to increase or 
maintain national productive capacity and that produce outputs and 
outcomes that provide evidence of maintaining or increasing national 
productive capacity. 
* research and development: expenses incurred to support the search for 
new or refined knowledge and ideas and for the application or use of 
such knowledge and ideas for the development of new or improved 
products and processes with the expectation of maintaining or 
increasing national productive capacity or yielding other future 
benefits. (SFFAS 8, par. 12, 83, 89, 90, & 96)].

Explanation: [Empty]. 

4) If an allocation of nonfederal physical property program costs, 
contracts, or grants with split purposes is not feasible, is the 
investment reported on the basis of the predominant application of the 
expenses incurred? (SFFAS 8, par. 86); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

5) Are investments in human capital reported in nominal dollars on the

Section X – Social Insurance: 

Questions related to accounting for social insurance programs in the 
Statement of Social Insurance (SOSI) are presented below. 

Statement of Social Insurance (Items 1 - 7): 
[Reporting on stewardship responsibilities aids in assessing the federal
government’s financial condition and the sufficiency of future 
budgetary resources to sustain public services and meet obligations as 
they become due. Information for social insurance programs is to be 
reported to address fundamental questions about the current and future 
financial condition of these programs. These fundamental questions 
include whether scheduled expenditures are sustainable with current 
scheduled income. Information required to be disclosed for social
insurance programs is intended to facilitate an assessment of the long-
term sustainability of the program as well as the ability of the 
program to raise resources from future program participants to pay for 
benefits to present participants. 

For the programs listed as social insurance, the entity should present 
the actuarial present value for the projection period of all future 
contributions and tax income (excluding interest) received from or on 
behalf of current and future participants; the actuarial present value 
for the projection period of estimated future scheduled expenditures 
paid to or on behalf of current and future participants; and the
actuarial present value for the projection period of the estimated 
future excess of contributions and tax income (excluding interest) over 
future scheduled expenditures. The entity should provide such 
information for the current year and separate estimates for each of the 
preceding four years. (SFFAS 17, par. 1; OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 76, 
section II.4.9.1)]. 

1) Are projections and estimates based on the entity’s best estimates 
of demographic and economic assumptions? (SFFAS 17, par. 25); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

2) Are future changes mandated by current law incorporated into the 
entity’s demographic and economic assumptions? (SFFAS 17, par. 24; 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

3) Are all projections and estimates made as of a date (i.e., the 
valuation date) as close to the end of the fiscal year (i.e., current
year) being reported on as possible and no more than 1 year prior to 
the end of the current year? (SFFAS 17, par. 26); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

4) Is the valuation date consistently followed from year to year? 
(SFFAS 17, par. 26); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

5) Are benefits paid during the reporting period plus any increase (or 
less any decrease) in the liability from the end of the prior period to 
the end of the current period recognized as an expense for the reporting
period? (SFFAS 17, par. 22); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

6) Are social insurance benefits due and payable to or on behalf of 
beneficiaries at the end of the reporting period, including claims 
incurred but not reported (IBNR) recognized as a liability? (SFFAS 17, 
par. 22); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

7) For Unemployment Insurance (UI), are liabilities recognized for: 
a) amounts due to states and territories for benefits they have paid to
beneficiaries but for which they have not withdrawn funds from the 
federal Unemployment Trust Fund (UTF) as of fiscal year end, and;

Section XI – Credit Reform: 

Questions related to accounting for credit reform in the financial 
statements are presented below. 

Caption: Credit Program Receivables; 
Question Numbers: 1 – 29. 

Caption: Liabilities for Loan Guarantees; 
Question Numbers: 30 – 37. 

Caption: Credit Program Costs; 
Question Numbers: 38 – 75. 

Caption: Other Financing Sources; 
Question Numbers: 76 – 81. 

Credit Program Receivables (1 - 29): 
[The Federal Credit Reform Act (FCRA) of 1990, as amended, divides 
loans and loan guarantees into two groups: pre-1992 and post-1991. Pre-
1992 refers to direct loan obligations or loan guarantee commitments 
made prior to fiscal year 1992. Post-1991 refers to direct loan 
obligations or loan guarantee commitments made after fiscal year 1991. 
[Footnote 66] (OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 98, section II.4.10.8, 
instructions item A)]. 

1) Are credit program receivables considered an entity asset if: 
a) the entity has the authority to determine the use of the funds
collected, or; 
b) the entity is legally obligated to use the funds to meet entity 
obligations (e.g., loans payable to Treasury)? (OMB Circular No. A-136, 
p. 38, section II.4.3.3); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

2) If a loan guarantee program, which guarantees a loan, is generating 
a negative subsidy and the lender has not disbursed the loan as of the 
balance sheet date, does the entity include this amount as part of the 
total undelivered orders? Footnote 67] (OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 38, 
section II.4.3.3); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

[For post-1991 direct loans and guarantees, a subsidy expense is 
recognized in the year they are disbursed. For pre-1992 direct loans 
and guarantees, a loss and liability need not be recognized until it is 
more likely than not that a loan (either direct or guaranteed) will go 
into default. (SFFAS 2, par. 24 & 39)]. 

3) Are post-1991 direct loans disbursed and outstanding recognized as 
assets at the present value (discounted at a comparable Treasury rate) 
of their estimated net cash inflows? (SFFAS 2, par. 22 & app. B, part I
A); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

4) Is the difference between the outstanding principal of post-1991 
direct loans and the present value of their net cash inflows recognized 
as a subsidy cost allowance? (SFFAS 2, par. 22 & app. B, part I A); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

5) When post-1991 direct loans are written off, is the unpaid principal 
removed from unpaid loans receivable and charged against the allowance 
for subsidy costs? (SFFAS 2, par. 61); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

6) Are losses of pre-1992 direct loans obligated recognized (and a 
corresponding allowance amount set up) when it is more likely than not 
that the direct loans will not be totally collected? (SFFAS 2, par. 39 &
app. B, part II A); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

7) Are allowances for uncollectible pre-1992 loans reestimated each 
year? (SFFAS 2, par. 39); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

[A loan modification is a federal government action that directly or 
indirectly alters the estimated subsidy cost and the present value of 
outstanding direct loans or the liability of loan guarantees. A direct 
modification changes the subsidy cost by altering the terms of existing 
contracts or through the sale of direct loans. An indirect modification 
changes the subsidy costs by altering the way loans and loan guarantees 
are administered. A modification does not include subsidy cost 
reestimates, routine administrative workouts of troubled loans, and 
other actions permitted within existing contract terms. (SFFAS 2, par. 
41-44)]. 

8) When post-1991 loans are modified, is the existing book amount 
changed to an amount equal to the present value of the loans' net cash 
inflows that are projected under the modified terms from the time of
the modification to the loans' maturity and discounted at the original 
rate? (SFFAS 2, par. 46 & app. B, part I D (4)); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

9) When pre-1992 loans are directly modified, are they: 
a) transferred from the liquidating account to a financing account, 
and; 
b) recorded at their post-modification value? (SFFAS 2, par. 47 & app. 
B, part II B (4)); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

10) Are subsequent (direct) modifications of pre-1992 loans treated as 
a modification of post-1991 loans? (SFFAS 2, par. 47) 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

11) When pre-1992 loans are indirectly modified, are they: 
a) kept in a liquidating account, and; 
b) reassessed and adjusted to reflect amounts that would not be 
collected due to the modification? (SFFAS 2, par. 47); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

12) When post-1991 and pre-1992 loans are sold, is the sale treated as 
a direct modification if the agency did not assume sales proceeds in 
the cash flow estimates for the initial subsidy calculation? (SFFAS
2, par. 53 & App. B, Part I F, note 23); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

[Foreclosed property is any asset, which is assumed to be held for 
sale, that is either received in satisfaction of a loan receivable or 
as a result of payment of a claim under a guaranteed or insured loan 
(excluding commodities acquired under price support programs). Pre-1992 
foreclosed property refers to property associated with direct loans 
obligated or loan guarantees committed before October 1, 1991. Post-
1991 foreclosed property refers to property associated with direct 
loans obligated or loan guarantees committed after September 30, 1991. 
(SFFAS 3, par. 79 & 80)]. 

13) Is post-1991 foreclosed property valued at the net present value of 
the projected future cash flows associated with the property? (SFFAS 3, 
par. 81); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

14) Is pre-1992 foreclosed property recorded at cost and adjusted to 
the lower of cost or net realizable value with any difference between 
cost and net realizable value carried in a valuation allowance? (SFFAS 
3, par. 81); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

15) In determining net present value, does the entity project future 
cash flows to include estimates of: 
a) sales proceeds; 
b) rent, management expense, and repair costs during the holding
period, and; 
c) selling expense (i.e., advertising and commissions)? (SFFAS No. 3, 
par. 82); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

16) In estimating sales proceeds for projecting the future cash flows 
associated with the property in determining net present value, has the 
entity considered its historical experience in selling property as well 
as the nature of the sale? (SFFAS 3, par. 82); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

17) Were the estimated future cash flows of post-1991 foreclosed 
property or acquired loans discounted at the original (or Treasury) 
discount rate in effect at the time the underlying loan or guarantee was
granted? (SFFAS 2, par. 57& 59; SFFAS 3, par. 83; SFFAS 19, par. 7(e)); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty].

Liabilities for Loan Guarantees (30 - 37): 
[A loan guarantee is any guarantee, insurance (but not deposit 
insurance), or other pledge with respect to the payment of all or part 
of the principal or interest on any debt obligation of a nonfederal 
borrower to a nonfederal lender. (SFFAS 2, app. C) 

The Federal Credit Reform Act of 1990 requires federal entities to

loans made after fiscal year (FY) 1991 (i.e., post 1991). (SFFAS 2, 
par. 7)]. 

30) Is the present value of estimated net cash outflows from post-1991

Explanation: [Empty]. 

31) Is a liability for a pre-1992 (i.e., committed before October 1,

33) When post-1991 loan guarantees are modified, is the existing book 
amount of the related liability changed to an amount equal to the 
present value of net cash outflows that are projected under the

34) When pre-1992 loan guarantees are directly modified, are: 
a) the loan guarantees transferred from the liquidating account to a 
financing account, and;

guarantees changed to an amount equal to its postmodification liability 
(i.e., the present value of the net cash outflows under 
postmodification terms discounted at the current Treasury rate)?
(SFFAS 2, par. 51 & app. B, part IV B (2) & (4));

Explanation: [Empty]. 

37) If a post-1991 or pre-1992 loan is sold with a recourse provision, 
is the present value (discounted at the Treasury rate in effect at the 
time of the sale) of the estimated losses recognized as a subsidy 
expense and a loan guarantee liability? (SFFAS 2, par. 54 & app. B, 
part I F(3)); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

Credit Programs Costs (38 - 75): 
[In accordance with the Federal Credit Reform Act of 1990, as amended, 
a subsidy expense is recognized for direct or guaranteed loans 
disbursed during the fiscal year. The amount of the subsidy expense 
equals the present value of estimated cash outflows over the life of 
the loans minus the present value of the estimated cash inflows. The 
discount rate used to calculate the present value is the average 
interest rate on marketable Treasury securities of similar maturity to 
the cash flows of the direct loan or loan guarantee for which the 
estimate is being made. (SFFAS 2, par. 6, 7, 24, 30, & 31; SFFAS 19, 
par. 6 & 7)]. 

38) For post-1991 direct or loan guarantee programs, is the present 
value of estimated cash outflows over the life of the loans minus the 
present value of estimated cash inflows discounted at the interest rate 
of marketable Treasury securities with similar maturity to the cash 
flows? (SFFAS 2, par. 24; SFFAS 19, par. 6); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

39) For post-1991 direct or loan guarantee programs, are the net 
present values recognized as subsidy expense in the year the loan is 
disbursed? (SFFAS 2, par. 24; SFFAS 19, par. 6); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

40) Are the components of estimated subsidy costs (and offsetting 
receipts) of post-1991 loans and guarantees separately recognized for: 
a) interest subsidy costs; [Footnote 69]
b) default costs; [Footnote 70]
c) present value of fees and other collections, and; 
d) other subsidy costs? (SFFAS 2, par. 25-29); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

41) Is the subsidy cost allowance for post-1991 direct loans amortized 
using the interest method? [Footnote 71] (SFFAS 2, par. 30, 31, and 
app. B, part I B (2); SFFAS 19, par. 7(a)); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

42) If the effective interest for post-1991 direct loans is less than 
the nominal interest, is the subsidy cost allowance increased by the
difference and recognized as a reduction in interest income? (SFFAS 2, 
par. 30 & app. B, part I B (2); SFFAS 19, par. 7(a)); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

43) If the effective interest for post-1991 direct loans is greater 
than the nominal interest, is the subsidy cost allowance decreased by
the difference and recognized as an increase in interest income? (SFFAS 
2, par. 30 & app. B, part I B (2); SFFAS 19, par. 7(a)); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

44) Is interest accrued and compounded on the liabilities of post-1991 
loan guarantees at the interest rate that was originally used to 
calculate the present value of the loan guarantee liabilities when the 
guaranteed loans were disbursed, after adjusting for the interest 
reestimate? (SFFAS 2, par. 31 & app. B, part III B (2); SFFAS 19, par. 
7(b)); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

45) Is the interest accrued and compounded on the liabilities of post-
1991 loan guarantees recognized as an interest expense? (SFFAS 2, par. 
31 & app. B, part III B (2)); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

[Two kinds of reestimates for the subsidy cost allowance for 
outstanding direct loans and the liability for outstanding loan 
guarantees are (1) interest rate reestimates and (2) technical/default 
reestimates. An interest rate reestimate is due to a change in the 
interest rates from those that were assumed in budget preparation and 
used in calculating the subsidy expense to the interest rates that are 
prevailing during the periods in which the direct or guaranteed loans 
are disbursed. A technical/default reestimate is due to changes in 
projected cash flows of outstanding direct loans and loan guarantees 
after reevaluating the underlying assumptions and other factors (except 
for interest rate reestimates) that affect cash flow projections as of 
the financial statement date. (SFFAS 18, par. 9)]. 

46) Does the entity measure reestimates of allowances for subsidy costs 
of post-1991 loans and liabilities for guarantees in two components

Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

47) Is any increase (or decrease) in the subsidy cost allowance of post-
1991 direct loans or loan guarantee liabilities resulting from the

expense (or a reduction in subsidy expense)? (SFFAS 2, par. 32; SFFAS 
18, par. 9); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

48) If the assumed interest rates used in calculating the subsidy 
expenses for cohorts [Footnote 72] from which direct or guaranteed
loans are disbursed differ from the rates prevailing at the time of the 
loan disbursement, is an interest rate reestimate for those cohorts 
made as of the date of the financial statements? (SFFAS 2, par. 32 (A);
(A)SFFAS 18, par. 9 (A)); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

49) Do technical/default reestimates take into consideration all 
factors that may have affected various components of projected cash 
flows, including defaults, delinquencies, recoveries, and prepayments? 
(SFFAS 2, par. 32 (B); SFFAS 18, par. 9 (B)); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

50) Are technical/default reestimates made each year as of the date of 
the financial statements? (SFFAS 18, par. 9 (B)); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

51) For direct loans, do other adjustments include loan modifications, 
fees received, loans written off, foreclosed property or other 
recoveries acquired, and subsidy allowance amortization? (SFFAS 18, par.
10); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

52) For loan guarantees, do other adjustments include loan guarantee 
modifications, fees received, interest supplements paid, claim payments 
made to lenders, foreclosed property or other recoveries acquired, and
interest accumulated on the loan guarantee liability? (SFFAS 18, par. 
10); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

53) Are default costs estimated and periodically reestimated for each 
post-1991 loan and loan guarantee program on the basis of separate 
cohorts and risk categories? (SFFAS 2, par. 33); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

54) In estimating default costs, did the entity evaluate: 
a) loan performance experience; 
b) the current and forecasted international, national, or regional
economic conditions that may affect the performance of the loans; 
c) financial and other relevant characteristics of borrowers; 
d) the value of collateral to loan balance; 
e) changes in recoverable value of collateral; 
f) newly developed events that could affect the loans' performance, 
and; 
g) improvements in methods to reestimate defaults? (SFFAS 2, par. 34); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

55) In estimating and reestimating future default costs for each group, 
cohort, and risk category of loan and guarantee, has the agency used a 
systematic methodology based on experience? (SFFAS 2, par. 35 & 36); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

56) Is interest (at the discount rate in effect when the loans were

part I B (2) & C); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

57) Is interest (at the original discount rate) accrued on debt to the 
Treasury arising from post-1991 direct loans recognized as interest 
expense? (SFFAS 2, par. 37 & app. B, part I B (2) & C);

Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

59) Is interest (at the original discount rate) due from the Treasury 
on uninvested funds associated with post-1991 loan guarantee 
liabilities recognized as interest income? (SFFAS 2, par. 37 & app. B, 
part III B (2) & C); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

60) Are costs for administering credit activities (such as salaries, 
legal fees, and servicing) that are incurred in support of direct loan
and guaranteed loan programs recognized as administrative expenses and 
not included in direct loan and loan guarantee subsidy costs? (SFFAS 2, 
par. 38); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

61) Are losses (as well as valuation allowances and corresponding 
liabilities) of direct loans obligated and loan guarantees committed 
before October 1, 1991, recognized when it is more likely than not that 
the direct loans will not be totally collected or that the loan 
guarantees will require a future cash outflow to pay default claims? 
(SFFAS 2, par. 39); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

[Foreclosed properties are assets received in satisfaction of a loan 
receivable or as a result of payment of a claim under a guaranteed or 
insured loan (excluding commodities acquired under price support 
programs.) All properties included in foreclosed property are assumed 
to be held for sale. Pre-1992 foreclosed property refers to property 
associated with direct loans obligated or loan guarantees committed 
before October 1, 1991. Post-1991 foreclosed property refers to property
associated with direct loans obligated or loan guarantees committed 
after September 30, 1991. (SFFAS 3, par. 79 & 80)]. 

62) If, at the time of the foreclosure, the expected net realizable 
value of pre-1992 foreclosed property is less than the cost (i.e., the 
carrying amount of the loan, or for a loan guarantee, the amount of the 
claim paid), is the loss charged to operations and tracked in a 
valuation allowance account? (SFFAS 3, par. 86); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

63) If the pre-1992 foreclosed asset's net realizable value 
subsequently increases or decreases, does the entity credit or charge
this amount to results of operations and adjust the valuation 
allowance? (SFFAS 3, par. 86); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

64) Upon sale of foreclosed property, is any difference between the net 
carrying amount of foreclosed property and the net proceeds of the sale 
recognized as a component of operating results? (SFFAS 3, par. 89); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

65) For post-1991 foreclosed property, is interest income accrued from

date? (SFFAS 3, par. 89); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];

Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty].

a loss on the sale of foreclosed property? (SFFAS 3, par. 89); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

[The term modification, as it applies to direct loans and loan 
guarantees, means a federal government action, including new 
legislation or administrative action that directly or indirectly alters 
the estimated subsidy cost and the present value of outstanding direct 
loans, or the liability of loan guarantees. The cost of the 
modification is the excess of the premodification value of a direct 
loan (or postmodification liability of loan guarantees) over the 
postmodification value of a direct loan (or premodification liability 
of loan guarantees), both of which have been discounted at the Treasury 
rate in effect when the modification occurred. (SFFAS 2, par. 41; SFFAS 
2, par. 45, notes 3 & 4 & par. 49, notes 6 & 7; SFFAS 19, par. 6) 

The book value of the loan or guarantee is discounted at the Treasury 
rate originally used to calculate the present value of the direct loan 
or loan guarantee liability when the loan was originally disbursed. 
(SFFAS 2, par. 48 & 50, app. B parts I D (4 & 5), II B (4), III B (4), 
& IV B (4)) 

The sale of post-1991 and pre-1992 direct loans is treated as a direct 
modification of the loans sold if the sale proceeds were not included 
in the cash flows estimates for the initial subsidy calculation. The 
cost of modification is determined on the basis of the premodification 
value of the loans sold. However, if sale proceeds were included in the 
cash flow estimates for the initial subsidy calculation, the effect of
the loan sale on the cost of the program is recognized in the 
reestimates. (SFFAS 2, par. 53, Appendix B. par 1F)]. 

68) If pre-1992 or post-1991 direct loans are modified, is the excess 
of the premodification value [Footnote 73] over the postmodification 
value [Footnote 74] recognized as a modification expense? (SFFAS 2, 
par. 45 & app. B, parts I D (1-3) & II B (1-3)); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

69) If the cost of modifying pre-1992 or post-1991 loans is either 
greater or less than the decrease in the loans' book value, is the 
difference recognized as either a gain or loss? (SFFAS 2, par. 48 & 
app. B, parts I D (4 & 5) & II B (4 & 5)); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

70) If pre-1992 or post-1991 loan guarantees are modified, is the 
excess of the postmodification liability [Footnote 75] over the 
premodification liability [Footnote 76] recognized as a modification 
expense? (SFFAS 2, par. 49 & app. B, parts III D (1-3), & IV B (1-3)); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

71) If the cost of modifying pre-1992 or post-1991 loan guarantees is 
either greater or less than the increase in the book value of the 
related loan guarantee liabilities, is the difference recognized as a 
either a gain or loss? (SFFAS 2, par. 52 & app. B, parts III D (4 & 5), 
& IV B (5)); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

72) If the premodification value of post-1991 and pre-1992 loans sold 
[Footnote 77] exceeds the net proceeds from the sale, is the excess
treated as the cost of modification and recognized as a modification 
expense? (SFFAS 2, par. 45 & 53 & app. B, part I F (1)); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

73) If a loan is sold with recourse, is the present value of estimated 
losses under the recourse or guarantee obligations recognized as a 
subsidy expense and as a loan guarantee liability? (SFFAS 2, par. 54); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

74) If the modification expense arising from a loan sale is greater 
than the book value loss, is the difference recognized as a gain?
(SFFAS 2, par. 55 & app. B, part I F (2)); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

75) If the modification expense arising from a loan sale is less than 
the book value loss, is the difference recognized as a loss? (SFFAS 2, 
par. 55 & app. B, part I F (2)); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

Other Financing Sources (76 - 81): 

76) Is a gain [Footnote 78] from the modification [Footnote 79 of post-
1991 loans reported as a reduction in financing source and paid to the 
Treasury as a "modification adjustment transfer?" (SFFAS 2, par. 48, & 
app. B, part I D (5)); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

77) Is a loss [Footnote 80] from the modification of post-1991 loans

the net realizable value of the commodities. 

[13] A business-type activity is defined as a significantly self-
sustaining activity that finances its continuing cycle of operations 
through the collection of exchange revenue. 

[14] The composite methodology is a method of calculating depreciation 
that applies a single average rate to a number of heterogeneous assets 
that have dissimilar characteristics and service lives. The group 
methodology is a method of calculating depreciation that applies a 
single, average rate to a number of homogeneous assets having similar
characteristics and service lives. 

[15] For example, the latest acquisition cost may be substituted for 
current replacement cost in some situations. 

[16] This adjustment may be needed because the Department of Defense 
may have already recognized the total estimated cleanup costs as a 
liability and expense for some military equipment (SFFAS 6.101). 

[17] Net remaining cost is the original cost of the asset less any 
accumulated depreciation/amortization to date (i.e., book value). 

[18] The liability is the net present value of lease payments unless 
the net present value of the lease payments exceeds the fair value of 
the asset, in which case the amount recorded as the liability would be 
the fair value of the asset. (SFFAS 5, par. 44) 

[19] Examples of costs for new software are salaries of programmers, 
systems analysts, project managers, and administrative personnel; 
associated employee benefits; outside consultants’ fees; rent; and 
supplies. 

[20] Software that serves both internal uses and stewardship purposes 
is referred to as multiuse software. An example is a global positioning 
system used in connection with national defense activities and general 
operating activities and services. 

[21] For example, such software could include software necessary to 
operate airport radar and computer operated lathes. 

[22] SFFAS 10 provides that material expenditures to add software 
capability/functionality would be capitalized but that expenditures 
that result in extending useful life or capacity would be expensed. 
(SFFAS 10, par. 42 & 43). 

[23] Liabilities covered by budgetary resources are liabilities covered 
by realized budgetary resources as of the balance sheet date. Budgetary 
resources include (1) new budget authority, (2) unobligated balances of 
budgetary resources at the beginning of the year or net transfers of 
prior year balances during the year, (3) spending authority from 
offsetting collections (credited to an appropriation or fund account), 
(4) recoveries of unexpired budget authority through downward 
adjustments of prior year obligations, and (5) permanent indefinite 
appropriations or borrowing authority, which have been enacted and 
signed into law as of the balance sheet date, provided that the 
resources may be apportioned by OMB without further action by the 
Congress and without a contingency having to be met. 

[24] Liabilities not covered by budgetary resources are liabilities for 
which congressional action is needed before budgetary resources can be 
provided. 

[25] Probable refers to that which can be reasonably expected or is 
believed to be more likely than not on the basis of available evidence 
or logic. However, in the context of assessing the outcome of matters 
of pending or threatened litigation and unasserted claims and 
recognizing an associated liability, “probable” refers to that which is 
likely, not to that which is “more likely than not.” 

[26] Measurable refers to that which can be quantified in monetary 
units with sufficient reliability to be reasonably estimable. 

[27] Fair value is the price for which an asset could be bought or sold 
in an arm’s-length transaction between unrelated parties. Roman L. Well 
and Patrick C. O’Brien, Accounting: The Language of Business, 9th ed. 
(Sun Lakes, Arizona: Thomas Horton and Daughters, 1994). 

[28] The interest method for amortizing a bond premium or discount 
reduces the discount or premium by the difference between the effective 
interest and stated interest on the bond. (SFFAS 1, app B, tables 1 & 
2). 

[29] A premium deficiency occurs if the liability for future policy 
benefits using current conditions exceeds the liability for future 
policy benefits using contract conditions. 

[30] Refund offsets are amounts withheld from refunds on behalf of 
other agencies. (See also OMB Circular No. A-129 (revised), app. A, 
Part V, section 2.c.i. (1)) 

[31] Drawbacks are refunds payable on all or part of duties paid on 
imported goods that are subsequently exported or destroyed. (SFFAS 7, 
app. C, glossary) 

[32] In the context of pending or threatened litigation, “probable” is 
taken to mean “likely;” otherwise, “probable” refers to that which is 
believed to be more “likely than not” or can be reasonably expected. 

[33] Clean-up costs are the costs of removing, containing, and/ or 
disposing of (1) hazardous waste from property, or (2) material and/or 
property that consists of hazardous waste at permanent or temporary 
closure or shutdown of associated PP&E. (SFFAS 6, par. 85) 

[34] Some examples of adjustments include reductions of appropriations 
and cancellations of expired appropriation expenditure accounts, which 
would also be included in line 6, “Permanently not available” on the 
Statement of Budgetary Resources. 

[35] This is true whether the goods, services, and benefits are payable 
or paid as of the reporting date and whether the appropriations are 
used for items that are expensed or capitalized. 

[36] Appropriations used does not increase net position. It is 
subtracted from “unexpended appropriations” and added to “cumulative 
results of operations,” which are line items on the balance sheet. 

[37] Nonappropriated balances include financing sources and revenue not 
reported as unexpended appropriations. 

[38] FASAB Technical Bulletin 2003-1 offers specific guidance dealing 
with transfers arising from the creation of the Department of Homeland 
Security and other transfers of operations between federal entities 
directed by the Homeland Security Act of 2002 (P.L. 107-296). 

[39] This amount includes intra-governmental transfers in to or out of 
capitalized assets during the current reporting year. 

[40] These include health, life insurance, pension, and other 
retirement benefits, but not other postemployment benefits. 

[41] Acquisition costs of heritage assets are part of the costs of the 
entity or the program that makes the property acquisitions. 

[42] Examples of unreimbursed costs that reporting entities are 
required to recognize include (but are not limited to): (1) employees’ 
pension, post-retirement health and life insurance benefits, (2) other 
postemployment benefits for retired, terminated, and inactive 
employees, which includes unemployment and workers compensation under 
the Federal Employees' Compensation Act, as amended, and (3) losses in
litigation proceedings (see FASAB Interpretation No. 2, Accounting for 
Treasury Judgment Fund Transactions). In the case of employee benefits, 
the imputed amount is the difference between employer/employee 
contributions and the total cost of the benefit. (OMB Circular A-136, 
p. 53, section II.4.4.3) 

[43] See note above. 

[44] A method is economically feasible if the benefits resulting from 
implementing the method outweigh its costs. 

[45] Common costs refer to the costs of maintaining and operating 
facilities and other resources that cannot be directly traced to any of 
the activities or outputs that share resources. 

[46] Past service costs result from retroactive benefits granted when a 
new plan is initiated. Prior service costs result from retroactive 
benefits granted in a plan amendment. 

[47] Actuarial gains and losses are changes in the balance of the 
pension liability that result from (1) deviations between actual 
experience and the actuarial assumptions used or (2) changes in 
actuarial assumptions. 

[48] The administrative entity may also receive financing from the 
general fund to cover prior service or other costs for which 
contributions were not provided by the employer or employee. 

[49] The liability is the actuarial present value of all future 
benefits, based on projected salaries and total projected service, less 
the actuarial present value of future normal cost contributions that 
would be made for and by the employees under the plan. 

[50] The liability is the actuarial present value of all future 
benefits less the actuarial present value of future normal cost
contributions that would be made for and by the employees under the 
plan. (SFFAS 5, par. 88). 

[51] The composite methodology is a method of calculating depreciation 
that applies a single average rate to a number of heterogeneous assets 
that have dissimilar characteristics and service lives. The group 
methodology is a method of calculating depreciation that applies a 
single, average rate to a number of homogeneous assets having similar
characteristics and service lives. 

[52] The cost of the PP&E acquired is recorded at the cost of the PP&E 
surrendered net of any accumulated depreciation or amortization when 
the fair value of the PP&E surrendered or acquired is not determinable. 

[53] Social insurance programs include Social Security, Medicare, 
Railroad Retirement, Black Lung Benefits, and Unemployment Insurance 
(SFFAS 17, par. 14). 

[54] A list of distributed offsetting receipt accounts can be found in 
the Treasury Annual Report Appendix, Part 4, Other Information/Receipts 
by Department Listing. 

[55] Agencies use the SF 224, Statement of Transactions; SF 1219, 
Statement of Accountability; and SF 1220, Statement of Transactions. 

[56] Revenue collected is not revenue that the collecting entity can 
use in its operations and is thus not recognized. The sources of cash 
collection are reported by type as indicated in the illustrated 
statement of custodial activity. (OMB Circular A-136, p. 74, section 
II.4.8.2) 

[57] Cash collections include any amounts paid in advance of due dates 
unless they are deposits. Deposits are amounts voluntarily paid to 
reporting entities, such as those made to stop the accrual of interest 
or those made pending settlements and judgments. Such deposits are 
separately recognized as deposit liabilities. 

[58] Refund offsets are amounts withheld from refunds on behalf of 
other agencies and paid to such agencies. 

[59] Drawbacks are refunds of duties paid on imported goods that are 
subsequently exported or destroyed. 

[60] Grants for maintenance and operations are not investments in 
nonfederal physical property. 

[61] The definition excludes education and training expensed for 
federal civilian and military personnel. 

[62] An example of an investment with a split purpose is a grant issued 
to a state to construct segments of the National Highway System and to 
conduct highway research. 

[63] An example of an investment with a split purpose is a grant issued 
to a teaching hospital for both medical education and medical research. 

[64] ibid. 

[65] In research and development programs, output data might consist of 
a number of new projects initiated, or the number of projects 
continued, completed, or terminated. It also might consist of 
quantitative measures such as publication counts, citation counts, 
patent counts, or scientific and engineering personnel funded. 

[66] Section 506 (a) of the Federal Credit Reform Act, as amended, 
exempts the credit activities of certain agencies, such as the Federal 
Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and the Tennessee Valley Authority 
(TVA). These agencies can report in accordance with other requirements. 

[67] Undelivered orders are the value of goods and services ordered and 
obligated but not yet received. 

[68] The original discount rate is the rate that was originally used to 
calculate the present value of the liability when the guaranteed loans 
were disbursed, after adjusting for the interest rate reestimate. 

[69] The interest subsidy cost of direct loans is the excess of the 
amount of the loans disbursed over the present value of the interest 
and principal payments required by loan contracts discounted at the 
applicable Treasury rate; for loan guarantees it is the present value 
of estimated interest supplement payments. 

[70] The default cost of direct loans or loan guarantees is measured at 
the present value of projected payment delinquencies and omissions 
minus projected net recoveries. 

[71] Under the interest method, the amortized amount is the difference 
between the nominal interest (face amount of loan times stated 
interest) and effective interest (present value of loan times discount 
rate). The effective interest rate is the average interest rate of 
marketable Treasury securities with similar maturity that was used to 
calculate the present value of the direct loans when the direct loans 
were disbursed, after adjusting for the interest rate reestimate. 

[72] Cohort is a budget term that refers to all direct loans or loan 
guarantees of a program for which a subsidy appropriation is provided 
for a given fiscal year, even if disbursements occur in subsequent 
years. 

[73] This is the present value of the net cash inflows estimated under 
premodification terms discounted at the current Treasury rate. 

[74] This is the present value of the net cash inflows estimated under 
postmodification terms discounted at the current Treasury rate. 

[75] This is the present value of the net cash flows under 
postmodification terms discounted at the current Treasury rate. 

[76] This is the present value of the net cash flows under 
premodification terms discounted at the current Treasury rate. 

[77] This is the present value of the loans’ net cash inflows 
discounted at the current discount rate. 

[78] The excess of the cost of the modification over the decrease in 
loan book value discounted at the Treasury rate. 

[79] A modification means a federal government action, including new 
legislation or administration action, which directly or indirectly 
alters the estimated subsidy cost and present value of outstanding 
loans or the liability of loan guarantees. (SFFAS 2, par. 41) 

[80] The excess of the decrease in loan book value, discounted at the 
Treasury rate, over the cost of the modification. 

[81] The excess of the cost of the modification over the increase in 
liability discounted at the Treasury rate. 

[82] The excess of the increase in liability, discounted at the 
Treasury rate, over the cost of the modification.

2020 – Checklist for Federal Reporting and Disclosures: 

Section I—Overview: 

Introduction: 

The Chief Financial Officers (CFO) Act of 1990 and the Government 
Management Reform Act of 1994 (GMRA) require that agencies’ chief 
financial officers submit annual reports to their agency heads and to 
the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). These annual reports are to 
contain audited financial statements of their agencies. The financial
statements are to be presented in conformity with U. S. generally 
accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP). [Footnote 1] 

The previous checklist, FAM 1050, Checklist for Federal Accounting, 
Reporting, and Disclosures (July 2004), included guidance for 
accounting, reporting, and disclosures. This checklist has been revised 
and is separated into two separate checklists: FAM 2010, Checklist for 
Federal Accounting and FAM 2020, Checklist for Federal Reporting and
Disclosures. FAM 2010 provides guidance for federal accounting that 
entities may complete during the year and auditors may review the 
completed checklist during interim audit work. FAM 2020 provides 
guidance for year end reporting and disclosure that entities may 
complete when they prepare their annual financial statements and
auditors may review the completed checklist during the reporting phase 
of the audit. 

These checklists are designed to assist (i) federal entities in 
preparing their financial statements in accordance with U.S. GAAP, and 
(ii) auditors in auditing them in accordance with U.S. generally 
accepted government auditing standards (GAGAS). Neither the entities 
nor the auditors are required to use this checklist and may develop
their own checklists. However, entities should document how they are 
satisfied that their financial statements conform with U.S. GAAP. 
Likewise, auditors should document the basis for accepting that the 
entity’s financial statements are in conformity with U.S. GAAP if they 
do not use the checklist. 

The checklist provides a systematic, organized, and structured approach 
to preparing or reviewing federal entity financial statements. While 
the questions contained in the checklist are taken from authoritative 
sources, the checklist itself is not authoritative, nor is it 
comprehensive. Preparers and auditors may also consult financial 
management regulations and policies for their individual entity, as 
these regulations and policies may have guidance when standards allow 
alternatives or management flexibility, such as for property 
capitalization limits. 

Checklist Organization: 

In order to facilitate the completion of the checklist, an index of 
relevant reporting and disclosure requirements is included in the 
following section. The preparer uses the index to determine those areas 
that apply to the entity. The checklist is divided into 7 sections
as follows: 

Section II - Management’s Discussion and Analysis (MD&A): 
Section III - Performance Reporting: 
Section IV - Financial Statements: 
Section V - Note Disclosures: 
Section VI - Required Supplementary Stewardship Information (RSSI): 
Section VII - Required Supplementary Information (RSI): 
Section VIII - Other Accompanying Information: 

Authoritative Guidance: 

Each question in this guide is referenced to a source. The sources 
cited are (1) Federal Accounting Standards Advisory Board (FASAB) 
Statements of Federal Financial Accounting Concepts (SFFAC), (2) FASAB 
Statements of Federal Financial Accounting Standards (SFFAS), and (3) 
OMB Circular No. A-136, Financial Reporting Requirements. Because this 
checklist is for the federal entity reporting level, and is not for the 
financial report of the U.S. government, certain sources are excluded. 

The four approved accounting concept statements and year they were 
issued are: 

SFFAC 1, Objectives of Federal Financial Reporting, 1993:

this checklist): 

Also included in this checklist is FASAB’s Implementation Guide to 
Accounting for Revenue and Other Financing Sources, (June 1996), and 
OMB Circular No. A-136, Financial Reporting Requirements, (June 29, 
2007), that provides detailed requirements for the form and content of 
entity financial statements. 

FASAB interpretations and technical bulletins are not covered in this 
checklist; consult this material as necessary for guidance on specific 
situations. Furthermore, preparers and auditors should document how the 
entity complied with any new standards issued after SFFAS 32. 

How to Use the Index to the Checklist: 

The preparer completes the following index to FAM 2020, Checklist for 
Federal Reporting and Disclosures before completing the detailed 
checklist. For each category of reporting and disclosure listed in the 
index on the next two pages, the preparer indicates whether it is 
applicable (Y) to the entity’s financial statements, or is not 
applicable (NA). Complete only those sections of the detailed checklist 
that are applicable to the entity’s financial statements. If the entity 
has an insignificant amount of transactions or balances for a section, 
it may decide not to complete that section. It may document that 
decision by indicating “not significant” (NS). Those areas that are not
applicable or not significant are not considered further, thus 
eliminating the need to read and evaluate each individual question. For 
example, many federal agencies do not administer loan, loan guarantee, 
or loan insurance programs and, therefore, do not have credit program 
receivables and related property. Consequently, the questions on these
receivables, property, and subsidies would not apply. 

How to Use the Detailed Checklist: 

To the right of each question are two columns. The first column 
provides for a “yes,” “no,” or “N/A” (not applicable) answer to each 
question. The second column provides for an explanation of the answer 
to each question. 

A “yes” answer indicates that the financial statements contain the 
information asked by the question. This would include immaterial items 
if the entity elected to disclose them. For each “yes” answer, include 
in the explanation column the page number or location in the financial 
statements where the information is found. Also, provide any other
information pertinent to the question and the response in the 
explanation column. 

A “no” answer indicates that the information asked for in the question 
is not included in the financial statements, notes, or supplementary 
information, respectively. This would include immaterial items that 
need not be disclosed. Describe in the explanation column or note why 
the information is not included and whether this causes the financial
statements to not be in conformity with U.S. GAAP. 

An “N/A” answer indicates that the question does not apply to the 
federal entity. Describe in the explanation column or note why this 
information is not applicable. 

Completion and Review of the Checklists: 

Preparers of entity financial statements may complete the checklists to 
document that applicable accounting, reporting, and disclosure items 
have been addressed, including those contained in OMB Circular No. A-
136. Auditors generally should then review the checklists for 
completeness and accuracy.

e) other relevant accounting literature? [Footnote 7] (OMB Circular No. 
A-136, p. 31, section II.4.2, item 1); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

[While a department receives budget authority in accordance with law, 
the same law may require that department (the parent) to allocate some 
or even all of the budget authority to another federal entity. When a 
parent makes such a delegation, the Treasury Department establishes a 
subsidiary account called a "transfer appropriation account” (the child 
account). The transfer itself is referred to as an allocation transfer. 
In the child account, the receiving federal entity receives the budget 
authority, and then obligates and outlays sums up to the amount included
in the allocation. (OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 34, section II.4.2, item 
5)]. 

16) Are all budgetary and proprietary activity reported by the parent 
in its financial statements, whether material to the child or not? (OMB 
Circular No. A-136, p. 34, section II.4.2, item 5); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

[The Balance Sheet presents, as of a specific time, amounts of future

amounts owed by the entity (liabilities), and amounts that comprise the 
difference (net position). (SFFAC 2, par. 57; OMB Circular No. A-136, 
p. 37, section II.4.3.1)]. 

Balance Sheet (Items 17 - 22): 

17) Do “other” assets and liabilities include only items that are 
immaterial to the entity and do not warrant separate reporting?
(OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 30, section II.4.1, Item E); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

18) Are entity and nonentity assets combined on the face of the balance 
sheet but nonentity assets are disclosed in a note? (OMB Circular No. A-
136, p. 37, section II.4.3.1 and p. 39, section II.4.3.3); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

19) Is there a line item on the balance sheet with a note that 
discloses information about heritage assets and stewardship land? 
[Footnote 8] (SFFAS 29, par. 25 & 40); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

20) Are unexpended appropriations and cumulative results of operations 
related to earmarked funds shown separately on the face of the balance 
sheet, if material? (SFFAS 27, par. 29, and OMB Circular No. A-136, pp. 
48-49, section II.4.3.5); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

[Liabilities covered by budgetary resources are liabilities covered by 
realized budgetary resources as of the balance sheet date. Budgetary 
resources encompass not only new budget authority but also other 
resources available to cover liabilities for specified purposes in a 
given year. Available budgetary resources include (1) new budget 
authority, (2) unobligated balances of budgetary resources at the
beginning of the year or net transfers of prior year balances during 
the year, (3) spending authority from offsetting collections (credited 
to an appropriation or fund account), and (4) recoveries of unexpired 
budget authority through downward adjustments of prior year 
obligations. Liabilities are covered by budgetary resources if they are 
to be funded by permanent indefinite appropriations, which have been 
enacted and signed into law and are available for use as of the balance 
sheet date, provided that the resources may be apportioned by OMB 
without further action by the Congress and without a contingency having 
to be met first. (OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 41, section II.4.3.4)]. 

21) Are liabilities covered by budgetary resources and liabilities not 
covered by budgetary resources combined on the face of the balance 
sheet, but liabilities not covered by budgetary resources disclosed
in a note? (OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 37, section II.4.3.1, p. 45, 
section II.4.3.4); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

[Intragovernmental assets arise from transactions among federal 
entities. Intragovernmental assets represent claims of a federal entity 
against other federal entities. Intragovernmental liabilities are 
claims against the reporting entity by other federal entities. (OMB 
Circular No. A-136, p. 39, section II.4.3.3; p. 45, section II.4.3.4)]. 

22) Are intragovernmental assets and liabilities reported separately 
from assets and liabilities from non-federal entities? (The Federal 
Reserve system and government sponsored enterprises are also considered
non-federal entities.) [Footnote 9] (OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 39, 
section II.4.3.3, pp. 45-46, section II.4.3.4); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

Statement of Net Cost (Items 23 - 35): 
[The Statement of Net Cost is designed to show separately the 
components of the net cost of the reporting entity’s operations for the 
period. The statement and any related supporting schedules classify 
revenue and cost information by major program and by suborganization or 
responsibility segment. (OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 50, section 
II.4.4.1) 

Managerial cost accounting is the process of accumulating, measuring, 
analyzing, interpreting, and reporting cost information useful to both 
internal and external groups concerned with the way in which the 
organization uses, accounts for, safeguards, and controls its resources 
to meet its objectives. (SFFAS 4, par. 42) 

A cost accounting “system” is a continuous and systematic cost 
accounting process that may be designed to accumulate and assign costs 
to a variety of objects routinely or as desired by management. (SFFAS 
4, par. 74) 

Cost finding is a method for determining the cost of producing goods or 
services using appropriate procedures, for example, special cost

[Offsetting receipts are collections that are credited to general fund, 
special fund, or trust fund receipt accounts and that offset gross 
outlays. Unlike offsetting collections, which are credited to 
expenditure accounts and offset outlays at the account level, 
offsetting receipts are credited to receipt accounts and offset outlays
at the agency or governmentwide level. 

Offsetting receipts may be distributed to agencies or undistributed. 
Distributed offsetting receipts offset the outlays of the agency, while 
undistributed offsetting receipts offset governmentwide outlays. 
Distributed offsetting receipts typically offset the outlays of the 
agency that conducts the activity, generating the receipts and the 
subfunction to which the activity is assigned. Offsetting receipts are
composed of proprietary receipts from the public, receipts from 
intragovernmental transactions, and offsetting governmental receipts. 
(OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 70, section II.4.6.8)].

offsetting receipts as reported in the Budget of the United States 
Government, if available by the time the financial statements must be 
finalized and submitted? (OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 71, section 
II.4.6.8); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty].

[Entities that collect nonexchange revenue for the General Fund of the 
Treasury, a trust fund, or other recipient entities account for the 
sources and disposition of these collections in a Statement of

78) Do the amounts transferred to others, reported in the “disposition 
of collections” section, identify the specific agencies to which 
collections were transferred and the amounts transferred? (OMB Circular 
No. A-136, p. 75, section II.4.8.4); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

79) Is the change in liability for accrued and collected revenue yet to

Explanation: [Empty]. 

Statement of Social Insurance (Items 83 - 85): 
[Reporting on stewardship responsibilities aids in assessing the federal
government’s financial condition and the sufficiency of future 
budgetary resources to sustain public services and meet obligations as 
they become due. Information for social insurance programs is reported 
to address fundamental questions about the current and future financial 
condition of these programs. These fundamental questions include 
whether scheduled expenditures are sustainable with current scheduled 
income. Information to be disclosed for social insurance programs is
intended to facilitate an assessment of the long-term sustainability of 
the program as well as the ability of the program to raise resources 
from future program participants to pay for benefits to present 
participants.

other notes to the financial statements? (OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 
81, section II.4.10.1); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

5) Is a description of changes in generally accepted accounting 
principles, and an explanation of concepts, such as Fund Balance with 
Treasury and Earmarked Funds unique to Federal financial statements 
included in the disclosure of significant accounting policies? (OMB
Circular No. A-136, p. 81, section II.4.10.1); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

6) If the entity is a “parent” involved in an allocation transfer with

Explanation: [Empty]. 

Non-entity Assets (Item 11): 
[Entity assets are assets that the reporting entity has authority to 
use in its operations. The authority to use funds in an entity's 
operations means that entity management has the authority to decide how 
funds are used, or management is legally obligated to use funds to meet 
entity obligations, e.g., repay loans from Treasury. Non-entity assets 
are assets held by an entity but are not available to the entity. An 
example of non-entity assets is tax receivables, which the Internal
Revenue Service collects for the U.S. Government but has no authority 
to spend. (OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 39, section II.4.3.3)].

Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

Fund Balance with Treasury (Items 12 - 20):

amount of funds in the entity's accounts with Treasury for which the 
entity is authorized to make expenditures and pay liabilities. FBWT 
includes clearing account balances and the dollar equivalent of foreign 
currency account balances. From the reporting entity's perspective, 
FBWT is an (intragovernmental) asset (although it is an 
intragovernmental liability to Treasury.) From the perspective of the 
federal government as a whole, FBWT is neither an asset nor a liability 
and is eliminated in the federal consolidated financial statements. 
FBWT represents a commitment to make resources available to federal 
departments, agencies, programs, and other entities. (SFFAS 1, par. 31 
& 32 with parenthesis provided for clarification.)]. 

12) Is the FBWT reported as an intragovernmental asset? (SFFAS 1, par.

OMB Circular No. A-136, pp. 83-84, section II.4.10.3); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty].

fund type (e.g., trust funds, special funds, revolving funds, general 
funds, and other fund types)? (OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 83, section
II.4.10.3, item A); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

16) Are restrictions on unobligated balances related to future use 
disclosed? (SFFAS 1, par. 38; OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 84, section 
II.4.10.3, item B); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

17) Does the entity disclose any: 
a) differences and the causes (if known) of such differences between 
FBWT in its general ledger accounts and the balance in its Treasury’s 
accounts, [Footnote 22] and; 
b) other information necessary for understanding the nature of fund
balances? (SFFAS 1, par. 39; OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 84, section

Circular No. A-136, p. 84, section II.4.10.3, item A); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

20) If any of the balances under “other fund types” are material, are 
they listed separately? (OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 84, section 
II.4.10.3, item A); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty].

Federal Employee and Veteran’s Benefits (Items 113 - 115): 
[Entities responsible for accounting for pensions, other retirement 
benefits (ORB) (e.g., health benefits for retirees), and other post-
employment benefits (OPEB) are to calculate and report these 
liabilities and related expenses in accordance with SFFAS No. 5. The 
accrued entitlement benefits payable that are applicable to the current 
period, but not yet paid, and annuities for the current fiscal year
administered by trust, pension, or insurance programs for which payment 
would be made in the following fiscal year, are classified as current 
liabilities. Liabilities for federal employee and veteran benefits 
include the actuarial portion of these benefits. They do not include 
liabilities related to ongoing continuous expenses such as employees’ 
accrued salary and accrued annual leave, which are reported as other 
liabilities. Actuarial liabilities, assumptions used to compute the
actuarial liabilities and the components of expense for the period for 
pensions, other retirement benefits, and other post-employment benefits 
are disclosed in the notes to the financial statements. (SFFAS 1, par. 
83 & 84; SFFAS 5, par. 56; OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 46, section 
II.4.3.4) 

In the context of accounting for pensions, ORB, and OPEB, the 
“administrative entity” manages and accounts for the pension or other 
employee plan, while the “employer entity” employs federal workers and 
generates employee costs, for which it would typically receive a salary 
and expense appropriation. (SFFAS 5, par. 57, note 38) 

The “aggregate entry age normal” actuarial cost method is where 
expenses or liabilities arising from the actuarial present value of 
projected pension benefits are allocated on a level basis over the 
earnings or the service of the group between entry age and assumed exit 
ages. The portion of the actuarial present value allocated to a 
valuation year is called “normal cost.” (SFFAS 5, par. 64)]. 

113) Does the administrative entity disclose the assumptions used to 
calculate the liability for pensions, ORB, and OPEB? (SFFAS 5, par. 67 
& 83; OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 110, section II.4.10.15); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

114) If the assumptions for a pension plan differ from the assumptions 
used by the three primary plans—Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS), 
Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS), and Military Retirement 
System (MRS)—does the administrative entity disclose how and why the 
assumptions differ from those of the primary plans? (SFFAS 5, par. 67; 
OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 110, section II.4.10.15); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

115) For the period, does the administrative entity separately disclose 
individual components of pension and other retirement expense for: 
a) normal cost; 
b) interest on the liability for the period; 
c) prior and past service cost from plan amendments during the period; 
d) any gains/losses due to a change in the medical inflation rate 
assumption, and; 
e) other actuarial gains or losses during the period? (SFFAS 5, par. 
72; OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 110, section II.4.10.15); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

Environment and Disposal Liabilities (Item 116): 
[Cleanup costs are the costs of removing, containing, and/or disposing 
of (1) hazardous waste from property, or (2) material and/or property 
that consists of hazardous waste at permanent or temporary closure or 
shutdown of associated PP&E. 

SFFAS No. 5 provides criteria for recognizing a contingent liability, 
which the entity applies to determine whether to recognize clean-up 
costs as liabilities and/or disclose them in a note. SFFAS No. 6 
supplements the liability standard by providing guidance for recording 
cleanup costs related to general and stewardship PP&E used in federal 
operations. The guidance applies to cleanup costs from federal 
operations known to result in hazardous waste which the federal
government is required by federal, state and/or local statutes and/or 
regulations to cleanup. Depending on the materiality of the amount, the 
liability for cleanup costs may be displayed separately or included 
with other liabilities. Note disclosures for liabilities associated 
with cleanup costs are described in SFFAS No. 6, TR No. 2, and OMB 
Circular No. A-136, p. 46-47, section II.4.3.4.]. 

116) Does entity disclosure of clean-up costs include: 
a) sources (i.e., applicable laws and regulations) of clean-up 
requirements; 
b) method for assigning estimated total clean-up costs to current 
operating periods (e.g., physical capacity versus passage of time); 
c) unrecognized portion of estimated total clean-up costs associated 
with PP&E; 
d) material changes in total estimated clean-up costs due to changes in 
laws, technology, or plans; 
e) portion of change in an estimate that relates to prior-period 
operations; 
f) the nature of estimates, and; 
g) information regarding possible changes due to inflation, deflation,
technology, or applicable laws and regulations? (SFFAS 6, par. 110-111; 
OMB Circular No. A-136, pp. 112 &113, section II.4.10.16); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

Cleanup Costs Adjustments (Item 117): 

117) Are amounts of prior-period adjustments arising from belated 
recognition of clean-up costs and liabilities disclosed? Are amounts 
associated with current and prior periods noted? (SFFAS 6, par. 105; 
SFFAS 21, par. 13); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

Other Liabilities (Items 118 - 120): 
[Other liabilities include liabilities that are not recognized in 
specific categories. They include (but are not limited to) liabilities 
related to: capital leases, insurance, advances and prepayments, 
deposit fund amounts held in escrow, and accrued liabilities related to 
ongoing continuous expenses such as federal employee salaries and 
accrued employee annual leave. This item also covers adjudicated losses 
due to litigation, claims, and contingencies. Clean up costs are 
reported as “Other Liabilities” if they are not material to the balance 
sheet. Clean up costs that are material are reported separately as 
“Environmental and Disposal Liabilities.” 

Separate reporting of items normally characterized as “Other 
Liabilities” is appropriate if the amounts are significant to the 
balance sheet. Other current liabilities may include accrued expenses. 
Entities separately disclose the amount of other current liabilities. 
(SFFAS 1, par. 83-86; OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 47, section 
II.4.3.4)]. 

118) Are significant other liabilities reported separately? (OMB 
Circular No. A-136, p. 47, section II.4.3.4); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

119) Does the entity disclose and/or classify the portion of other 
liabilities: 
a) covered by budgetary resources that not covered by budgetary 
resources; 
b) payable to federal entities (intragovernmental liabilities); 
c) payable to non-federal entities, and; 
d) that are current and noncurrent? (SFFAS 1, par. 83, 85 & 86; OMB 
Circular No. A-136, pp. 111-112, section II.4.10.17); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

120) Is other information necessary for understanding other liabilities 
disclosed? (OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 112, section II.4.10.17); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

Leases (Items 121 - 124): 
[Capital leases are leases that transfer substantially all of the 
benefits and risks of ownership to the lessee. Leases not meeting the 
criteria of a capital lease are operating leases. (SFFAS 5, par. 43)].

Life Insurance Liabilities (Items 125 - 126): 
[Insurance liabilities are reported as a component of Other Liabilities 
on the balance sheet and disclosed in a separate note to the financial 
statements. 

Entities with federal insurance and guarantee programs, except social 
insurance and loan guarantee programs, recognize a liability for unpaid 
claims incurred, resulting from insured events that have occurred as of 
the reporting date. The amount recognized is the liability known with 
certainty plus an accrual for a contingent liability recognized when an 
existing condition, situation, or set of circumstances involving 
uncertainty as to possible loss exists and the uncertainty is 
ultimately resolved when one or more future events occur or fail to 
occur, a future outflow or other sacrifice of resources is probable, 
and the future outflow or sacrifice of resources is measurable. Life 
insurance programs recognize a liability for future policy benefits in 
addition to the liability for unpaid claims incurred. (SFFAS 5, par. 
104 & 105; OMB Circular No. A-136, pp. 47-48, section II.4.3.4)]. 

125) Are liabilities for future benefits of whole life insurance

contracts along with a description of each amount and explanation of 
its projected use and any other potential uses? (SFFAS 5, par. 121; OMB 
Circular No. A-136, p. 114, section II.4.10.19); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

Commitments and Contingencies (Items 127 – 130): 
[A loss contingency is an existing condition, situation, or set of 
circumstances involving uncertainty as to possible loss to an entity. 
The uncertainty will ultimately be resolved when one or more future 
events occur or fail to occur. A loss contingency is a liability when a 
past event or exchange transaction has occurred; a future outflow or
other sacrifice of resources is probable; and the future outflow or 
sacrifice of resources is measurable. 

In addition to loss contingencies in SFFAS No. 5, the entity also 
discloses (1) an estimate of obligations related to canceled 
appropriations for which the reporting entity has a contractual 
commitment for payment, and (2) amounts for contractual arrangements 
that may require future financial obligations. Examples of claims or
other contingencies include: (1) indemnity agreements –reimbursements 
due to licensees or contractors for losses incurred in support of 
federal activities; (2) claims against the federal government that are 
in process of judicial proceedings; (3) the unfunded portion of total 
liabilities to international organizations; and (4) litigation 
addressing claims for equity relief or non-monetary judgments whereby 
claimants are seeking specific actions by a federal agency. (SFFAS 5,

OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 48, section II.4.3.4)]. 

127) When determining an estimated contingent liability, if no amount 
within a range of amounts is a better estimate than any other amount, 
does the entity disclose a minimum amount in the range with a 
description of the nature of the contingency? (SFFAS 5, par. 39); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

128) If any one of the conditions for recognizing a contingent 
liability is not met and there is at least a “reasonable possibility” 
[Footnote 34] that a loss or additional loss may be incurred, does the 
entity disclose the nature of the contingency [Footnote 35] and one of 
the following a) an estimate of the possible liability, or b) an 
estimate of the range of the possible liability, or c) a statement that 
such an estimate cannot be made? (SFFAS 5, par. 36, 38, 40, & 41, as 
amended by SFFAS 12); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

129) If information about remote contingencies, or related to remote 
contingencies, is included in general purpose federal financial

supplemented by other financing sources, which remain available over 
time. These specifically identified revenues and other financing 
sources are required by statute to be used for designated activities, 
benefits or purposes, and are accounted for separately from the 
entity’s general revenues. (SFFAS 27, par. 11; OMB Circular No. A-136

mistakes in the application of accounting principles, or oversight or 
misuse of facts that existed at the time the financial statements were 
prepared. When errors are discovered after the issuance of financial 
statements, and if the financial statements would be materially 
misstated absent correction of the errors, corrections are made as
follows: 
(a) If only the current period statements are presented, then the 
cumulative effect of correcting the error is reported as a prior period

Explanation: [Empty]. 

163) If the entity discovered misstatements in a prior period with a 
material effect on current or prior period financial statements, did 
the entity restate its financial statements? Did the entity determine 
the material effect based on accounting materiality which is often less

Reconciliation of Net Cost of Operations to Budget (Items 165 - 188): 
[On June 29, 2007, revised OMB Circular No. A-136 eliminated the 
Statement of Financing and moved the reconciliation of net cost of 
operations to budget to a note, effective for fiscal year 2007. 
However, the revised circular did not prescribe an illustrative format 
for the reconciliation, and preparers of financial statements should 
refer to the July 24, 2006, version of OMB Circular No. A-136. (OMB
Circular No. A-136, p. 128, section II.4.10.42) 

The reconciliation of net cost of operations to budget provides a 
bridge between an entity’s financial (i.e., proprietary) accounting and 
budgetary accounting. It articulates the relationship between net cost 
of operations derived from the entity’s proprietary accounts and net 
obligations derived from an entity’s budgetary accounts by identifying 
and explaining key differences between the two numbers. 

Most entity transactions are recorded in both budgetary and proprietary 
accounts. However, because different accounting bases are used for 
budgetary and proprietary accounting, some transactions may appear in 
only one set of accounts (e.g., accrual of environmental and disposal 
liabilities, which is recorded only in the proprietary records). 
Furthermore, not all obligations or offsetting collections may result 
in expenses or exchange revenue (e.g., purchase of a building is
capitalized on the balance sheet in the proprietary accounts but 
obligated and outlayed in the budgetary accounts). 

The reconciliation is structured to first identify total resources used 
by an entity during the period (budgetary and other) and then make 
adjustments to the resources based upon how they were used to finance 
net obligations or net cost. Budgetary resources reported in this 
statement are those resources as defined in OMB Circular No. A-11 and 
are also reported on the Statement of Budgetary Resources. Other 
resources reported in this reconciliation are also reflected in the
Statement of Changes in Net Position. (OMB Circular No. A-136, July 24, 
2006, p. 69, section II.4.7.1; SFFAS 7, par. 80 & 95) 

The section “Resources Used to Finance Activities” reflects the 
budgetary resources obligated and other resources that are used to 
finance the activities of the agency. The obligations of budgetary 
resources are net of offsetting collections, recoveries, and offsetting 
receipts. The other resources are financing sources that increase net
position but are not budgetary resources. Every line item in this 
section is also reported on either the Statement of Budgetary 
Resources, or the Statement of Changes in Net Position. (OMB Circular 
No. A-136, July 24, 2006, p. 71, section II.4.7.3)]. 

Resources Used to Finance Activities: 

165) Is the budgetary information used to calculate net obligations 
[Footnote 40] presented on a combined basis [Footnote 41] and in 
agreement with similar amounts reported on the SBR? (OMB Circular No. A-
136, July 24, 2006, p. 31, section II.4.2, item 5, & p. 69, section 
II.4.7.1); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

166) Does the amount disclosed as “obligations incurred” equal the 
obligations incurred line item as reported on the SBR? Does this 
include all budget accounts, including nonbudgetary financing 
accounts? (OMB Circular No. A-136, July 24, 2006, p. 71, section 
II.4.7.3); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

167) Does the amount disclosed as “less: spending authority from 
offsetting [Footnote 42] collections and recoveries” [Footnote 43] 
agree with the spending authority from offsetting collections and 
recoveries as reported on the SBR? Does this include all budget 
accounts, including nonbudgetary financing accounts? (OMB Circular No. 
A-136, July 24, 2006, pp. 71-72, section II.4.7.3); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

168) Is “Obligations net of offsetting collections and recoveries” 
equal to the difference between “obligations incurred” and “spending 
authority from offsetting collections and recoveries?” (OMB Circular 
No. A-136, July 24, 2006, p. 72, section II.4.7.3); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

169) Does the amount disclosed as “less: offsetting receipts” equal the 
offsetting receipts [Footnote 44] line item as reported on the SBR?
(OMB Circular No. A-136, July 24, 2006, p. 72, section II.4.7.3); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

170) Do “net obligations” [Footnote 45] equal the difference between 
“obligations net of offsetting collections and recoveries” and 
“offsetting receipts?” (OMB Circular No. A-136, July 24, 2006, p. 72, 
section II.4.7.3); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

171) Does the reconciliation include other nonbudgetary resources used 
to finance activities? Do the line item amounts as reported on the 
reconciliation equal the amounts reported as “other financing sources” 
on the SCNP for: 
a) donations and forfeitures of property?
b) transfers in or out without reimbursement?
c) imputed financing from costs absorbed by others?
d) other?
(OMB Circular No. A-136, July 24, 2006, p. 72, section II.4.7.3); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

172) Is “total resources used to finance activities” equal to the sum 
of net obligations [Footnote 46] and net other (nonbudgetary)
resources used to finance activities? (OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 70, 
section II.4.7.2); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

[The section, “Resources Used to Finance Items Not Part of the Net Cost 
of Operations,” in the reconciliation adjusts total resources used to 
finance the activities of the entity to account for items that were 
included in net obligations and other resources, but which were not 
part of the net cost of operations. This section would include items in 
which the expense was recognized in a prior period but the budgetary 
resource and obligation are recognized in the current period (e.g., 
upward/downward reestimates of subsidy expense accrued in the prior
period but obligated in the current period). It would also include 
budgetary resources and obligations recognized in the current period 
that do not affect the net cost of operations (e.g., the acquisition of 
assets reflected in net obligations but not in net cost of operations 
for the period). (OMB Circular No. A-136, July 24, 2006, p. 72, section 
II.4.7.4)]. 

Resources Used to Finance Items Not Part of the Net Cost of Operations: 

173) Does the “change in budgetary resources obligated for goods, 
services, and benefits ordered but not yet provided (+/-),” [Footnote

included in net obligations, but which are not part of the net cost of
operations? (OMB Circular No. A-136, July 24, 2006, p. 72, section 
II.4.7.4); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

174) Does the disclosure “resources that fund expenses recognized in 
prior periods,” [Footnote 48] reflect the obligation of resources that 
were part of the net cost of operations in a prior period? (OMB 
Circular No. A-136, July 24, 2006, p. 72, section II.4.7.4); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

175) Do the amounts disclosed included under “budgetary offsetting 
collections and receipts that do not affect net cost of operations” 
reflect offsetting collections and receipts [Footnote 49] that are not 
reported as exchange revenue in the Statement of Net Cost? (OMB 
Circular No. A-136, July 24, 2006, p. 72, section II.4.7.4); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

176) Does the disclosure “resources that finance the acquisition of 
assets,” reflect budgetary resources obligated [Footnote 50] that are 
not expenses as reported on the Statement of Net Cost? (OMB Circular 
No. A-136, July 24, 2006, p. 73, section II.4.7.4); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

177) Does the entity include under the disclosure “other resources or 
adjustments to net obligated resources that do not affect net cost of 
operations,” activities [Footnote 51] not otherwise classified under 
the other line items in this section of the reconciliation? (OMB 
Circular No. A-136, July 24, 2006, p. 73, section II.4.7.4); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

178) Does the disclosure “total resources used to finance the net cost 
of operations,” consist of the difference between the “total resources 
used to finance activities” and “total resources used to finance items 
not part of the net cost of operations?” (OMB Circular No. A-136, July 
24, 2006, p. 70, section II.4.7.2); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

[The section, “Components of the Net Cost of Operations that will not 
Require or Generate Resources in the Current Period,” identifies (1) 
items that are recognized as a component of the net cost of operations 
(i.e., current period expenses and exchange revenues) for which 
budgetary resources (and related obligations) will not be provided (or 
incurred) until a subsequent period and (2) items (i.e., current period 
expenses) that are recognized as a part of the net cost of operations 
for the period but will not generate or require the use of resources in 
the current period. (OMB Circular No. A-136, July 24, 2006, p. 73,

[SFFAS 29, Heritage Assets and Stewardship Land, reclassifies all 
heritage assets and stewardship land information as basic except for 
condition information, which is classified as RSI, which may be 
reported with the deferred maintenance information. The 
reclassification as basic of the heritage assets and stewardship
land information is being phased. The phase-in approach provides for 
full implementation for reporting periods beginning after September 30, 
2008. (OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 133, section II.4.12.2)]. 

1) Is a concise description of each major category of heritage asset 
presented? (SFFAS 29, par. 25 & 40; OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 133, 
section II.4.12.2);

& 41; OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 133, section II.4.12.2); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

Deferred Maintenance (Items 6 – 9): 
[Maintenance is the act of keeping fixed assets in acceptable condition.
Maintenance includes preventive maintenance, normal repairs, 
replacement of parts and structural components, and other activities 
needed to preserve the asset so that it continues to provide acceptable 
services and achieves its expected life. 

Maintenance excludes activities aimed at expanding the capacity of an 
asset or otherwise upgrading it to serve needs different from, or 
significantly greater than, originally intended. 

Deferred maintenance is maintenance that was not performed when it 
should have been, or was scheduled to be, and that, therefore, is put 
off or delayed for a future period. (SFFAS 6, par. 77 & 78)]. 

6) Does the entity report for each major category of its PP&E (i.e., 
general PP&E, heritage assets, and stewardship land) the: 
a) identity (e.g., building, equipment, land) of each major class of 
asset for which maintenance was deferred, and; 
b) method of measuring deferred maintenance for each major class of
asset? (SFFAS 6, par. 83; OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 134, section 
II.4.12.3); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

[Amounts reported for deferred maintenance may be measured using 
condition assessment surveys or life-cycle cost forecasts. Condition 
assessment surveys are periodic inspections of PP&E, based on generally 
accepted and consistently applied methods, to determine PP&E’s current
condition and the estimated cost to correct any deficiencies. (SFFAS 6, 
par. 81) Life-cycle costing is an acquisition or procurement technique 
that considers operating, maintenance, and other costs in addition to 
the acquisition cost of assets. (SFFAS 6, par. 82)]. 

7) If the condition assessment survey method is used to measure 
deferred maintenance, does each major class of PP&E in RSI disclose: 
a) a description of requirements or standards for acceptable operating
condition; 
b) any changes in the condition requirements or standards, and; 
c) asset condition and a range estimate of the dollar amount of 
maintenance needed to return it to its acceptable operating condition?
(SFFAS 6, par. 83); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

8) If the total life cycle cost method is used to measure deferred 
maintenance, does each major class of PP&E disclose: 
a) the original date of the maintenance forecast and an explanation for 
any changes to the forecast; 
b) prior-year balance of the cumulative deferred maintenance amount; 
c) the dollar amount of maintenance that was defined by the 
professionals who designed, built, or managed the PP&E as required 
maintenance for the reporting period; 
d) the dollar amount of maintenance actually performed during the 
period; 
e) the difference between the forecast and actual maintenance; 
f) any adjustments to the scheduled amounts deemed necessary by the
managers of the PP&E, and; 
g) the ending cumulative balance for the reporting period for each 
major class of asset experiencing deferred maintenance? (SFFAS 6, par. 
83); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

9) If management elects to break out deferred maintenance by critical 
and noncritical amounts needed to bring each class of asset to its 
acceptable operating condition, does it also include its definition of 
these categories? (SFFAS 6, par. 84; OMB Circular No. A-136, p. 134, 
section II.4.12.3); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

Social Insurance (Items 10 – 26):

government’s financial condition and the sufficiency of future 
budgetary resources to sustain public services and meet obligations as 
they become due. Supplementary information for social insurance 
programs is reported to address fundamental questions about the current 
and future financial condition of these programs. Information disclosed 
for social insurance programs is intended to facilitate an assessment

par. 27 (2)); 
Yes, No, or N/A: [Empty];
Explanation: [Empty]. 

22) For all social insurance programs except UI, does the responsible 
entity illustrate the sensitivity of the projections of cash flows and 
actuarial present values to changes in the most significant individual
assumptions? (SFFAS 17, par. 27 (4) (a), SFFAS 26, par. 5; OMB Circular

Footnotes: 

[1] The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) 
recognizes federal accounting standards promulgated by the Federal 
Accounting Standards Advisory Board as U.S. generally accepted 
accounting principles. 

[2] SFFAS 11 was rescinded in its entirety by SFFAS 23. 

[3] SFFAS 16 was rescinded in its entirety by SFFAS 29. 

[4] SFFAS 25 changes reporting requirements for social insurance 
information required by SFFAS 17. 

[5] On June 29, 2007, revised OMB Circular No. A-136 eliminated the 
Statement of Financing and moved the reconciliation of net cost of 
operations to budget to a note, effective for fiscal year 2007. 
However, the revised circular did not prescribe an illustrative format 
for the reconciliation and preparers of financial statements should 
refer to the July 24, 2006, version of OMB Circular No. A-136. (See 
2020-108 through 2020-116) 

[6] The statement of social insurance has separate requirements for 
comparative data discussed in the section of this checklist specific to 
that statement. 

[7] Other accounting literature includes for example, FASAB Concept 
Statements, Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) Statements, 
Interpretations, Technical Bulletins, and Concept Statements, AICPA 
Issue Papers, International Accounting Standards of the International 
Accounting Standards Committee, pronouncements of other professional 
associations or regulatory agencies, AICPA Technical Practice Aids, and 
accounting textbooks, handbooks, and articles. 

[8] No asset dollar amount is shown, except for multi-use heritage 
assets, which are capitalized and reported as part of general PP&E. 

[9] Government sponsored enterprises (GSE) are federally chartered but 
privately owned and operated entities. 

[10] Suborganizations are considered to be generally equivalent to 
responsibility segments. 

[11] Errors in financial statements result from mathematical mistakes, 
mistakes in the application of accounting principles, or oversight or 
misuse of facts that existed at the time the financial statements were 
prepared. 

[12] A change in accounting principle is a change from one generally 
accepted accounting principle to another one that can be justified as 
preferable; this would also include changes occasioned by the adoption 
of new federal accounting standards. 

[13] Financial statements of subsequent periods need not repeat the 
disclosure. 

[14] Other resources increase net position but are not budgetary 
resources as reported on the “Statement of Budgetary Resources” or 
defined as such in OMB Circular No. A-11, Part 4. 

[15] Offsetting receipts offset budget authority and outlays at the 
agency level in the Budget of the United States Government, but are not 
reflected in budget execution reports (SF 133s), which provide account-
level information only. Since the SBR is an agencywide report, 
offsetting receipts are included to reconcile to information in the 
Budget of the United States Government. 

[16] Outlays consist of disbursements net of offsetting collections. 

[17] That is, do the outlays agree with the aggregate of the outlays 
for accounts within the Budget of the United States Government? 

[18] Agencies report their disbursements and collections using the SF 
224, Statement of Transactions; SF 1219, Statement of Accountability; 
and SF 1220, Statement of Transactions. 

[19] Although SFFAS 17 lists UI for general public, the requirements 
for the SOSI in paragraphs 27(3) and 32(3) of SFFAS 17 specifically 
exclude UI. Therefore, a SOSI is not required for UI. 

[20] The obligated balance not yet disbursed is the amount of funds 
against which budgetary obligations have been incurred, but 
disbursements have not been made. 

[21] The unobligated balance is the amount of funds available to the 
entity against which no claims have been recorded. (SFFAS 1, par. 38) 

[22] The entity should reconcile differences and correct errors when 
preparing financial reports. Although both SFFAS 1 and OMB Circular No. 
A-136 state “any differences”, for audit purposes materiality would 
apply. FASAB standards generally state that they need not be applied to 
immaterial items; however, the determination of immateriality requires
considerable judgment based upon specific facts and circumstances. 

[23] Nonentity cash is always restricted. Other examples of restricted 
cash includes cash held in escrow to pay property taxes and insurance 
related to property associated with defaulted loans, seized cash 
(recognized as an asset per SFFAS No. 3), bid deposits held in a 
commercial bank, and cash held in earmarked funds. 

[24] Section 506 (a) of the Federal Credit Reform Act exempts the 
credit activities of certain agencies, such as the Federal Deposit 
Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA). 
These agencies can report in accordance with other requirements. 

[25] That is, the sum of (1) defaulted guaranteed loans receivable 
gross, (2) interest receivable, and (3) foreclosed property, less the 
allowance for subsidy cost at present value. 

[26] Under the present value method, the nominal amount of the direct 
loans is reduced by an allowance equal to the difference between the 
nominal amount and the present value of the expected net cash flows 
from the loans. OMB Circular A-136, p. 96, section II.4.10.8, 
instruction A, 4th par.) 

[27] Under the allowance-for-loss method, the nominal amount of the 
direct loans is reduced by an allowance for uncollectible amounts. (OMB 
Circular A-136, p. 96, section II.4.10.8, Instruction A, 4th par.) 

[28] Changes in legislation or credit policies include, for example, 
changes in borrowers’ eligibility, the levels of fees or interest rates 
charged to borrowers, the maturity terms of loans, and the percentage 
of private loans that are guaranteed. 

[29] The subsidy rate is the dollar amount of the subsidy component as 
a percentage of the direct loans or loan guarantees obligated in the 
cohort. 

[30] Major categories of operating materials and supplies include (1) 
items held for use; (2) items held in reserve for future uses; and (3) 
excess, obsolete, and unserviceable items. 

[31] Liabilities covered by budgetary resources are liabilities covered 
by realized budgetary resources as of the balance sheet date. Budgetary 
resources include (1) new budget authority, (2) unobligated balances of 
budgetary resources at the beginning of the year or net transfers of 
prior year balances during the year, (3) spending authority from 
offsetting collections (credited to an appropriation or fund account), 
(4) recoveries of unexpired budget authority through downward 
adjustments of prior year obligations, and (5) permanent indefinite 
appropriations or borrowing authority, which have been enacted and 
signed into law as of the balance sheet date, provided that the 
resources may be apportioned by OMB without further action by the 
Congress and without a contingency having to be met. 

[32] Liabilities not covered by budgetary resources are liabilities for 
which congressional action is needed before budgetary resources can be 
provided. 

[33] The net-level premium reserve for a death and endowment policy and 
the liability for terminal dividends. 

[34] The chance of a future event occurring is less than “probable” but 
more than “remote.” 

[35] Examples of claims or other contingencies include (1) indemnity 
agreements-reimbursements due to licenses or contractors for losses 
incurred in support of federal activities; (2) adjudicated claims 
(i.e., claims against the federal government that are in the process of 
judicial proceedings); and (3) commitments to international 
institutions-payment due to international institutions. 

[36] An example of information related to a remote contingency would be 
the total face amount of insurance and guarantees in force. 

[37] Apportionment categories are determined in accordance with 
guidance provided in OMB Circular No. A-11, Part 4, Instructions on 
Budget Execution. 

[38] FASAB Technical Bulletin 2002-2 indicates disclosures when the 
entity issues financial statements for a given year before the Budget 
of the United States Government for the same fiscal year is published. 

[39] Accrual adjustments, which modify the net of cash collections and 
refunds to determine the amount of revenue recognized, are the net 
increases or decreases during the reporting period in accounts 
receivable, allowance for uncollectible accounts, and accounts payable 
for refunds. 

[40] The budgetary information includes the line items (1) “obligations 
incurred,” (2) “less: spending authority from offsetting collections 
and recoveries,” (3) “obligations net of offsetting collections and 
recoveries,” and 4) “less: offsetting receipts.” 

[41] A combined basis means the aggregation of account-level 
information as opposed to a consolidation that implies the
elimination of inter-account transactions. 

[42] “Offsetting” in the term “offsetting collections” means that the 
resources generated by the collecting activity are added to the 
expenditure accounts and hence “offset” gross obligations. (SFFAS 7 
Implementation Guide (April 2002), par. 22) 

[43] Recoveries are budgetary resources that offset obligations on the 
Statement of Budgetary Resources, but are not a proprietary financing 
source used to offset costs on the Statement of Net Cost. (OMB Circular 
A-136, July 24, 2006, p. 73, section II.4.7.4) 

[44] Offsetting receipts differ from “offsetting collections.” 
Offsetting collections are included in the entity’s expenditure
account and thus are usually available for spending for the purposes of 
the account without further action by Congress. (SFFAS 7 Implementation 
Guide (April 2002), par. 23) 

[45] Net obligations reflect obligations incurred net of offsetting 
collections, recoveries, and offsetting receipts. 

[46] One of the reasons that net obligations does not equal the amount 
of the net cost of operations is that there are resources that are not 
reported in the Budget of the United States Government that may finance 
the net cost of operations or other activities of the agency. 

[47] This disclosure is used to explain the difference between the 
total resources used to finance activities and the net cost of 
operations because of the change in “budgetary resources obligated for 
goods, services, and benefits ordered but not yet provided,” i.e., 
“undelivered orders.” Undelivered orders are part of “obligations 
incurred,” but they do not affect the net cost of operations. Thus, for 
a transaction involving the placing a $100 undelivered order, 
obligations incurred would increase by $100 but would be shown as a 
negative or a reduction to total resources used to finance activities. 
(SFFAS 7 Implementation Guide (April 2002), par. 53-55) 

[48] This disclosure is used to explain differences in resources and 
net cost of operations caused by expenses, which were accrued in 
previous periods but paid in the current period. If, for example, the 
amount of annual leave taken or obligated was worth $250 but the amount 
of annual leave earned (i.e., expensed) for the period was $200, the
difference of $50 between obligation and expense would be shown as a 
negative. (SFFAS 7 Implementation Guide (April 2002), par. 56-58) 

[49] Examples of offsetting collections and receipts that are not 
exchange revenue are (1) collections of subsidy expenses for post –1991 
credit programs, (2) collections of exchange revenue receivable from 
the public, and (3) advances (i.e., unfilled customer orders) for work 
not performed, with the caveat that in most cases, orders from the 
public without advances cannot be accepted. This disclosure is usually 
shown as a positive, the opposite (i.e., negative) of what is included 
under the disclosure “less: spending authority from offsetting 
collections and recoveries,” unless there is a net decrease in unfilled 
customer orders. (SFFAS 7 Implementation Guide (April 2002), par. 59-
61) 

[50] An example of this activity is the purchase of capital assets. 
(SFFAS 7 Implementation Guide (April 2002), par. 62) 

[51] This activity may include noncash recoveries of prior year 
obligations. Recoveries are budgetary resources that offset obligations 
on the Statement of Budgetary Resources, but which are not a 
proprietary financing source used to offset costs on the Statement of 
Net Cost. 

[52] An increase in annual leave liability has no effect on budgetary 
accounts, because it is not funded on an accrual basis. It is financed 
when it is taken and the amounts are paid to employees who took the 
leave. Thus, budgetary resources are zero, but the net cost of 
operations includes the amount of accrued leave. (SFFAS 7 Implementation
Guide (April 2002), par. 40) 

[53] The Credit Reform Act of 1990, as amended, provides that agencies 
will receive subsidies to cover defaults and other situations for 
direct loans and loan guarantees obligated after September 30, 1991. 
(SFFAS 7 Implementation Guide (April 2002), par. 66) 

[54] Budget authority to fund reestimates is permanent and indefinite 
and no further congressional action is needed to provide the resources. 

[55] Absent specific legislation to the contrary, public receivables do 
not count as budgetary resources until they are collected. Hence, the 
revenue related to accruals of those resources is not reflected in 
offsetting collection activity at the time they are accrued. (SFFAS 7 
Implementation Guide (April 2002) par. 70) 

[56] Budgetary resources are obligated when the asset is acquired, not 
when it is depreciated or used up. No budgetary resources are used when 
an asset is depreciated. (SFFAS Implementation Guide, par. 44) 

[57] Budgetary resources are obligated when an allowance (i.e., 
liability or contra-asset) for a subsidy is set up, and as the
estimated expenses are realized the allowance account is amortized. The 
budgetary accounts, which have already recognized the obligation and 
offsetting collection for subsidy expense, are not affected by the 
transaction. (SFFAS 7 Implementation Guide (April 2002), par. 92) 

[58] Gains are shown as a negative; losses are shown as a positive. 

[59] An example of this would be default expenses of pre-credit reform 
(or pre-1992) loans. 

[60] Nonvalued fiduciary assets are fiduciary assets for which required 
disclosure does not include dollar values. Nonvalued fiduciary assets 
may include land held in trust. 

[61] Acceptable criteria include: quantitative factors such as the 
percentage of the reporting entity’s fiduciary net assets or inflows; 
and qualitative factors such as whether a fiduciary activity is of 
immediate concern to beneficiaries, whether it is politically sensitive 
or controversial, whether it is accumulating large balances, or whether 
the information provided in the fiduciary note disclosure would be the 
primary source of financial information for the public. 

[62] Acceptable criteria include: quantitative factors such as the 
percentage of the reporting entity’s fiduciary net assets or inflows; 
and qualitative factors such as whether a fiduciary activity is of 
immediate concern to beneficiaries, whether it is politically sensitive 
or controversial, whether it is accumulating large balances, or whether 
the information provided in the fiduciary note disclosure would be the 
primary source of financial information for the public. 

[63] This reporting is encouraged, but is not required. 

[64] The real-wage differential is the difference between the annual 
percentage increase in wages in covered employment and the inflation 
rate, as measured by the CPI.
