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.

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.
