Management Data and Information Prize

This award is made to the authors of the best papers submitted in response to a call for data management/data quality discussion papers whenever the program is conducted by the Committee on Management Data and Information of the Casualty Actuarial Society. Papers are judged by a specially appointed review committee on the basis of originality of ideas, understandability of complex concepts, contribution to the literature, and thoroughness of ideas expressed. If no paper is considered eligible in a given year, the award shall not be made. The committee's decision will be final. Recipients need not be members of the Casualty Actuarial Society. The announcement of the award will be made at the seminar at which the papers are presented.

The amount of the Management Data and Information Prize is determined annually.
