The Performeter is an analytical tool that takes a government’s financial statements and converts them into useful and understandable measures of financial performance. The Performeter uses financial ratios and a copyrighted analysis methodology to arrive at an overall rating of 1-10, which indicates the overall financial health and performance of a government. Since 2002, PITI-VITI has been developing Performeters annually for each of the insular areas. As a result, multiple years of cumulative data is now available for each government. In addition to being able to track overall scores, the Performeter can also be used to track individual trends within ratios: Net Position, Fund Balances, Revenue Dispersion, Intergenerational Equity, etc.  This session will describe the Performeter tool, highlight recent results by insular area, and consider next steps for island governments'  financial health and performance.

 This session will also take a detailed look into more recent GASB standards that have been issued and become applicable, including GASB 87 on Leases, GASB 96 related to Subscription-Based Information Technology Arrangements (SBITA), Statement 94 on Public-Private or Public-Public Partnerships (P3s), Statements 100-103, and Statement 104 on the new Financial Reporting Model.  In addition, this session will take a look at the future of standard-setting and where the GASB will most likely be going next

A new GASB accounting standard has recently became effective that alters the historical landscape of how lease accounting has always been performed.  GASB 87 not only does away with the methodology of previous accounting for leases, but also introduces new concepts for what a lease is, and even more importantly what is not a lease, and also provides new guidance on how to determine the true “term” of a lease for accounting and financial reporting purposes.
