Call for Research Proposals: 'Strengthening Institutions to Improve Public Expenditure Accountability'

Funded by the Department for International Development (DFID), GDN has launched an exciting 5-year research project on 'Strengthening Institutions to Improve Public Expenditure Accountability'. We would like to invite proposals from think tanks, research and policy institutions and independent, non-partisan, not-for-profit organizations based in the developing and transition world. The goal of the research project is to achieve institutional and individual development; jump start the production of internationally comparable micro-level information on the quality of public spending and share data with relevant stakeholders; produce templates for analysis and dissemination/communication that other organizations can adapt for their own use; and to implement a framework to shape policy debates. Under this Call for Proposals, GDN will sponsor up to 20 institutions over the project period to:
· conduct detailed budget analyses of public expenditures
· utilize methodologies including program budgeting, benefit incidence analysis, and cost effectiveness studies and
· introduce research based policy alternatives
Your institution is welcome to apply with a completed proposal; however this invitation does not guarantee selection for the project. Deadline for all submissions is 15th February 2009.For more information on the competition: Email :
