Hosted by the CIGAR Workshop 2020

Nov 05, 2019 | News

The International Public Sector Accounting Standards Board (IPSASB) held its first Research Forum on 17 September 2019 in Naples, Italy. More than 80 participants, from academia and standard-setting bodies discussed linkages between academia and the standard-setting process and current and committed projects on the IPSASB’s work program. One of the key points identified was the scope for academia to provide research input to potential IPSASB projects. 

Ahead of the 2nd IPSASB Research Forum, to be held on 17 June 2020 in Oslo-Drammen, Norway, the IPSASB is offering grants of USD 1,500 for research under each of the following topics:

  • The Presentation of Financial Statements in the Public Sector;
  • Differential Reporting (Financial Reporting for Small and Medium Sized Public Sector Entities);
  • Discount Rates in the Public Sector: Rationale for their Use and Determination; and
  • Disclosures of Tax Expenditures.
The grants will be awarded by an academic advisory committee comprising representatives from IPSASB and the academic community, based on abstracts. Please email your abstract to by 31 December 2019 for consideration.
