ASIP 2014 Annual Prize

As in previous years, the Executive Secretariat  is calling to a contest  to award ASIP Annual Prize  to the best unpublished essay, which prize amounts to US$ 2,000.

On this occasion, ASIP has decided to establish the following topic: “How to  increase fiscal space,  to increase social spending”.

We would like to remind you that  this year, the applicants  should send their paper to the corresponding National Association before the 15th November, 2014.

In the case of those countries not  having a National Association, the application  will be directly assessed  by ASIP´s Executive Secretariat. The jury´s decision  will be made  public on the 15th  December, 2014.


ü  This year, the International Association of Public Budget (ASIP) has decided, by mutual agreement with the member countries, that those authors interested in participating should  send their papers  to ASIP´s Executive Secretariat.

ü  As stipulated in the Annual Prize Bases, the selected essay  should be related to  budgeting and public financial management topics  which ASIP  decides each year, and the extension should not exceed the amount of  12,000 (twelve thousand) words, and it may be written in any of the  three official languages  of ASIP (Spanish, Portuguese, English). The papers should comply  with the general conditions and style guidelines  required by ASIP for the publication of papers in the  International Journal of Public Budget, that may be consulted at  Aqui

ü  The selected paper  will be sent to the International Association of  Public Budget (ASIP) with the corresponding digital format, before the 15th  November, 2014, so allow the  International Jury to take a decision,  according to the  stipulations in the Bases of the Contest.

ü  The National Associations of Budget  may eventually become  receptors  of the questions  of the participants to the contest, and be used  as the proper vehicle to channel their contributions.

ü  This modality  contributes to strengthen  that institutional network that ASIP  is building in order to promote  discussions, debates and exchange of ideas among the specialists from different  countries devoted to  budgeting and  public finances.
