Abstract 
The researcher intends to find out the cost and benefit of adopting and implementing IPSAS to financial reporting in the Nigeria public sector. The cost of implementing the standard is actually a big task as it would mostly involve the cost of training personnel, writing of new accounting manuals, installation of adequate information and communication technology software for the programme both at the Federal, State and Local government, among others. On the economic side, Ngama (2012) noted that the adoption of IPSAS would provide the basis for the establishment of a harmonized budgetary system for the three tiers of government. The researcher used descriptive analysis and made use of Chi-square test and Krustal Wallis test to test the proposed hypothesis. The findings of this study found out that the implementation of IPSAS in the Nigerian public sector would significantly improve transparency and accountability. The researcher recommended that the preparation of the country’s financial statement using IPSAS which is an international standard would definitely encourage investors into the country. Furthermore, it would also expose the in-house corrupt practice of some of the public officers thereby deterring them from such act.
