This Section defines a government partnership and establishes standards on how to account for and report a government's interest in government partnerships in government financial statements, regardless of the structures and forms under which the government partnership activities take place.

The modified equity basis of accounting is applied to account for the government’s share of government business partnerships. Proportionate consolidation is applied to all other government partnerships.
