Public Financial Publications (PFP), the publisher of Public Budgeting & Finance (PB&F), is pleased to announce a program of financial support for new, strong academic research in the federal budget and the federal budget process. Unprecedented challenges face the federal government in the next several years as it confronts extraordinary fiscal challenges. In that environment, it is important that academic and practitioner researchers devote renewed attention to the decision making, execution, and control systems of federal finance.
To stimulate this research, PFP will offer a maximum of eight grants for research articles on the federal budget and budgeting to be submitted for publication in PB&F. Proposals for this research are due by November 1, 2009. Papers based on successful proposals will be presented at the 2010 conference of the Association for Budgeting and Financial Management (ABFM) and final submissions of papers from this research will be submitted for consideration by Public Budgeting & Finance by November 1, 2010. The proposal should not exceed ten pages in length and should be accompanied by a copy of the applicant’s curriculum vita.
