WASHINGTON — Governmental Accounting Standards Board chairman Robert Attmore announced he will retire next June, after serving two five-year terms, but not before the board completes some key projects.

In an interview with The Bond Buyer, Attmore, 66, said it’s going to be busy over the next nine months before he officially steps down as chairman. Not only will he be involved in the transition process with his successor, but he will oversee the issuance of two final accounting standards and a set of implementation guides for pension accounting standards before he leaves.
