Submission Details

1. Who is eligible?
Although the submission can be made by either a bank or its technology partner, banks and their IT partners will be assessed jointly for the award. The organisation submitting must ensure that the partner bank/vendor should be available for interview if required. All banks and non-bank financial institutions (including insurance companies, brokerages, credit companies and finance companies) with operations in Asia Pacific countries, with completed IT implementations in 2010 are eligible for submission. Banks making a submission must indicate the partners they worked with or products used as these will be also evaluated.

3. Will institutions that do not make a submission be considered?
For IT projects of outstanding merit The Asian Banker may decide, at its own discretion and on a strictly case by case basis, to consider institutions that do not make a submission. However, institutions that do not make a submission may have a ranking that is not up to their expectations due to unavoidable difficulties in gathering full and accurate information when a submission has not been made.

4. Is the information submitted made available to the public?
All business sensitive information provided will not be published in any form whatsoever that could reveal the names of the institutions involved. The information selected for determining industry benchmarks will not refer to any institution by name. Any submissions deemed usable for publication, we will request for permission for.

5. What is the deadline for submissions?
To be considered for an Award, please make a complete submission to us no later than January 21st, 2011 in electronic format. Please keep in mind that only IT projects that were completed or made fully functional in 2010 are eligible for consideration. Work in progress should be submitted only after completion.
