Download as PDF khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES 32784 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 131 / Tuesday, July 9, 2019 / Notices SDP on CAS–GAAP conformance. See Staff Discussion Paper on Conformance of the Cost Accounting Standards to Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (84 FR 9143, March 13, 2019). The first SDP provided a proposed conceptual framework and guiding principles to prioritize the evaluation of whether and to what extent CAS may be conformed to GAAP as well as an initial comparison of CAS 408, Accounting for Costs of Compensated Personal Absence, and CAS 409, Cost Accounting Standard Depreciation of Tangible Capital Assets, for public comment. 2. Review of CAS-Applicability Recommendations made by the Advisory Panel on Streamlining and Codifying Acquisition Regulations (the ‘‘section 809 Panel’’). On April 30, 2019, the Office of Management and Budget transmitted two legislative proposals to Congress—for consideration in the acquisition title of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2020 or as part of other appropriate Congressional bills—addressing certain recommendations made by the Section 809 Panel in volume 2 of its report. One legislative proposal would repeal the statutory requirement for the Department of Defense to manage a Defense Cost Accounting Standards Board. The second legislative proposal would decouple the monetary threshold for CAS applicability from the threshold for Truth in Negotiations Act applicability and increase the basic threshold for CAS applicability from $2 million to $15 million. These proposals were developed with input from the CAS Board. Copies of these proposals may be found on the OMB homepage at https://www.whitehouse.gov/wpcontent/uploads/2019/05/NDAATransmittal-of-OFPP-ProposalsSummary-MPence-Entire-Leg-Pkg-Final2.pdf (see pp. 22–32). The Board will consider other CAS applicability recommendations made by the section 809 Panel. 3. Review of Court and Board Decisions Related to CAS. Section 820(a) requires the CAS Board to review on an annual basis disputes before the Boards of Contract Appeals (BCAs) or Federal courts involving its standards to determine whether greater clarify in CAS could avoid such disputes. The Board will discuss recent decisions by the BCAs and Courts involving its standards. 4. CAS Board Working Groups. The Board will assess the need for additional support on its pension harmonization working group. The working group has completed fact-finding for the SDP on Pension Adjustments for Extraordinary Events and provided recommendations VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:47 Jul 08, 2019 Jkt 247001 to the Board to support promulgation of an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) on this subject. The Board intends to simultaneously publish the SDP and ANPRM and reconvene the working group following receipt of public comments on the ANPRM. The Board will also evaluate the need for a dedicated working group to support ongoing work associated with the CAS–GAAP conformance project. Lesley A. Field, Acting Chair, Cost Accounting Standards Board.
