Projects and Business Plans
Exposure Drafts and Consultation Papers:
All changes to the Reporting Standards Handbook (Volume I) which are other than conforming are exposed to interested parties during a public comment period. At the conclusion of the public comment period, all comments are considered by the Reporting Standards Council in its deliberations before a final Adopting Release is approved. The Adopting Release contains a discussion of the resolution of all outstanding matters as well as the new Reporting Standards document.
At the conclusion of the comment period, all written comments received are posted to the Reporting Standards web site until the Adopting Release is issued.
Current Exposure Drafts and Consultation Papers:
Current Projects Prospectuses:
Each year under the direction of the Reporting Standards Council, the Reporting Standards workgroups undertake a number of projects. These projects are described in the Annual business plan. New initiatives for substantive changes to the Reporting Standards require a project prospectus. The project prospectus is prepared by the designated workgroup and approved by the Reporting Standards Council and Board.
Reporting Standards Business Plans:
Annually, the Reporting Standards Board is responsible for the preparation of a business plan and budget which is approved by the Reporting Standards sponsors- NCREIF and PREA. The business plan describes the current and anticipated project plan for each workgroup along with an explanation of how the project supports the strategic objectives and mission of the REIS initiative.
**Please note that Reporting Standards was formerly known as "REIS"**
Other Projects and Draft Materials:
Periodically, drafts of papers and other materials which are not exposed though the public comment process are posted here until they are finalized in order to invite commentary from industry. Comments should be sent via e-mail to email@example.com
