    A public accountant is a person who performs professional accounting services for the public. The public accountant is licensed by a state to use the PA designation. Licensing requirements for a PA are significantly less than for a Certified Public Accountant.

    Governmental accounting is an umbrella term which refers to the various accounting systems used by various public sector entities. In the U.S., for instance, there are three levels of government which follow different accounting standards set by independent, private sector boards. At the federal level, the Federal Accounting Standards Advisory Board (FASAB) sets forth the accounting standards to follow. Similarly, there is the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) for state level government and Federal Accounting Standards Board (FASB) for local level government.
