Using Advanced Mobile Field Data Collection Technologies to Comply with GASB 34 Reporting Requirements
Track: State and Local Government
Author(s): Michael Perry
Governmental Accounting Standards Board Statement No. 34 (GASB 34) requires that state and local governments report on the value of their infrastructure assets. This paper will discuss the benefits of using the latest developments in voice technology and GPS in a mobile computing environment to collect data complying with GASB 34 reporting requirements in a consistent, safe, and cost-effective way. Proven speech-enabled data collection capabilities allow surveyors to capture vital information faster than by filling out forms or navigating menus. Real-time DGPS allows surveyors to see where they are and where they've been so they don't get lost or miss pieces of data. Postprocessing data entry delays are eliminated.
