Centro de Investigación Económica y Presupuestaria

For A Program To Foster Fiscal Sustainability With Citizen Voices And Evidence-informed Policies

This grant will allow the Centro de Investigación Económica y Presupuestaria (CIEP), A.C. to complete a public expenditures analysis by developing two public expenditure reports on financing public infrastructure and public security. CIEP will study alternatives to expand the fiscal space, as well as construct a database to improve the accuracy and targeting of fiscal policies. It will continue work on its fiscal simulator and promote its use by creating micro simulations in other countries in the Global South that are experiencing fiscal contraction. In addition, CIEP will develop participatory budgeting tools for public expenditures on key public services, such as health, at the local level.

for general operating support  
The Centro de Investigación Económica y Presupuestaria (CIEP) A.C. is a research and advocacy organization in Mexico that contributes evidence to the public debate on issues of economy and public finance. CIEP strengthens the research capacities of economists to work on public finance; provides technical assistance to decision makers; develops tools for fiscal analysis; and communicates the findings of their budget analysis with citizens, journalists, and decision makers. Over the next three years, CIEP will deepen its partnerships with local governments and social movements. (Strategy: Inclusive Governance)
for a project to develop an online tool to simulate changes in tax policy in Mexico  
With this grant, the Centro de Investigación Económica y Presupuestaria would use public information to create an interactive, public, Web-based tool that would allow the community of practice and citizens in general to evaluate different fiscal scenarios for Mexico. This simulator would produce evidence-based data to support policy recommendations, help place public finances at the center of public debate, and foster citizen participation. The fiscal simulator allows changes to income variables such as income tax, VAT, oil, and other taxes, as well as modify government expenditure to evaluate Mexico’s public spending, effectiveness, long-term fiscal sustainability, and public policy design in general.
