MASB Projects

Work of the MASB is conducted on a Project basis and organized into three overall categories: Standards, Research and Concepts.

Prioritization is based on the following considerations:

• Pervasiveness of the Issue
• Alternative Solutions
• Technical Feasibility
• Practical Consequences
• Convergence Possibilities
• Cooperative Opportunities
• Resources

MASB Projects generally involve the following Project Stages:

I. Frame-Up (Emerging Issue Abstract)
II. Research
III. Review and Complete
IV. Education
V. Systematic Review Over Time

Initial projects on the MASB Agenda were recommended by MASB Charter Members, influenced in part by feedback from C Level interviews. They have been prioritized according to MASB resources.

Projects are added according to recommendations by, and consultation with, the MASB Advisory Council (MAC).
