Dear Open Spending community:

[With apologies for cross posting; please distribute widely.]

Announcing two Calls for Proposals on open budget data research.

The Global Initiative for Fiscal Transparency (GIFT) is commissioning 
two research projects which you or your network may find of interest.

Open Budget Data Current State of Affairs: Call for Proposals
This research effort, both a landscape (existing practices and research) 
and assessment (identification of gaps and opportunities in the practice 
and research), will compile existing practices related to the use of 
open budget data as it relates to the delivery of public services and 
overall engagement with public stakeholders.

Country Case Studies of Practical and Innovative Approaches on Open 
Budget Data and Fiscal Policies: Call for Proposals
This research explores in detail three to five examples of countries 
using open budget data in innovative ways to connect with the public, 
CSOs, academics, and the media.

GIFT <www.fiscaltransparency.net> is a multi-stakeholder action network 
of governments, international organizations, civil society groups, 
professional associations, and private sector participants.
