The article presents information on a public hearing held by The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), to analyze comments on an Exposure Draft. Gregory A. Ray, FASB industry fellow and project manager for the software accounting issue said that this was only the second time in FASB history that the Board has done such a thing. It was not quite what Greg had expected on the date of issuance. However, after receiving mixed response to a proposed accounting standard for computer software development costs, it appeared to be the logical means of obtaining additional information.
