American Accounting Association’s Best Paper Award
The American Accounting Association, the apex organization of accountants in academia, has awarded the prestigious Journal of Information Systems (JIS) best paper award in the accounting information systems section to “Budget Adjustments and Spending Patterns: A Transaction-Cycle View,” published in JIS and co-authored by Birendra (Barry) K. Mishra, professor of accounting information systems. The paper is first to operationalize “transaction cycles” (TC), a fundamental construct of accounting information systems, and provides a theory-based competing alternative for TC-based budgeting. Using the rational expectations theory-based partial adjustment model and Porter’s value chain concept, the authors find “that a transaction cycle’s position in the value chain and its technology content plays a critical role in determining asymmetric ratcheting during budgeting.”
