IPSAS’s goal is to serve the public interest by developing high quality accounting standards for use by public sector entities around the world in the preparation of general purpose financial statements. This will enhance the quality and transparency of public sector financial reporting and strengthen public confidence in public sector financial management. In pursuit of this objective, IPSAS supports the convergence of international and national public sector accounting standards and the convergence of accounting and statistical bases of financial reporting where appropriate.

IPSAS aims to improve the quality of general purpose financial reporting by public sector entities, leading to better informed assessments of the resource allocation decisions made by governments, thereby increasing transparency and accountability. The International Public Sector Accounting Standards Board (IPSASB) issues accounting standards and other guidance relating to the financial reporting needs of national, regional and local governments, governmental agencies, and the constituencies they serve. The International Public Sector Accounting Standards (IPSAS) that have been issued by the IPSASB represent the first and only comprehensive set of authoritative international financial reporting standards for governments and other public sector entities.
