Working Paper Series

The purpose of the Working Paper Series (WPS) is to encourage, support and disseminate research on public finance issues by the AU community. The WPS is published online periodically by the CPFR and disseminated to the university environment and others in the public finance community. The WPS is interested in publishing research on such national and international issues as: the costs of public programs and services; tax policies and administration issues; fees and pricing practices for public services and facilities; budgeting and expenditure control; purchasing and contracting; accounting and auditing of public funds; public expenditure performance; comparative and international budgetary practices and results; cash and debt management; intergovernmental and local government fiscal management; infrastructure and capital budgeting and financing; and the organization and management of finance departments.
