Submission Deadline: July 28, 2017
Description: The Research Network project “Income Taxation in Latin American and the Caribbean: Constructing a New Dataset Based on Household Survey Datasets” will fund proposals from Latin American and Caribbean research centers that are willing to participate in the construction of the abovementioned dataset. We plan to commission a maximum of 11 national databases in total. The exact number of selected proposals will depend on the quality of the proposals received and the budget available. Submission of proposals should be in tune with the sections described below. Once completed, this dataset will be used for the creation of knowledge products including working papers regarding the macroeconomic determinants and implications of income tax policy.
Elegibility: Research institutions interested should submit a proposal no later than July 28, 2017 by e-mail to Elton Mancilla at red@iadb.org. The following information is required for submitting the proposal: The name of the research leader and a list of other researchers involved. The center should demonstrate the ability of their research team to meet the objectives of the project, including relevance of prior experience. Curricula vitae of all researchers involved in the whole project may appear in a separate annex. Subsequent substitutions for researchers originally specified in the proposal may be made with prior approval from project coordinators, but the research leader must lead the entire project until its full completion; A budget (in a separate annex) indicating the time and resources that will be used within the context of the research work plan. The budget proposed by the research center should disaggregate items financed by the IDB contribution and those financed by the research center. The budget should distinguish among amounts assigned to professional honoraria, “overhead” and other major categories of research expenditures. The proposal and corresponding budget must be sent in separate files; Institutions must provide the name and contact information of their legal representative, with authority to sign contracts with the IDB, if selected to conduct the study. Proposing research institutions should be registered as Research Network members (contact Elton Mancilla at red@iadb.org for this purpose) and should be based in the Latin American and Caribbean region. U.S. and European institutions do not qualify as members of the Research Network. However, researchers from the United States and Europe can participate with research teams from Latin American and Caribbean proposing institutions.
