    Budget and Expenditures ICANN Posts Proposed 2003/04 Budget
    posted by michael on Monday May 19 2003, @05:18AM

    dmehus writes "ICANN, which is looking more and more like a for-profit corporation with an annual budget of $10 million, posted its updated 2003/04 proposed budget. This is an update to the preliminary 2003/04 budget."

    Among the changes:
    • Proposed increase in Personnel expenditures from $3,820,000 to $4,011,000 to accomplish a restructuring of the staff along a more business-like model, which has been proposed by the new CEO. This reorganization will entail retooling the current staff structure and adding two positions over the FTE number in the Preliminary Budget. Additional funds ($74,000) have also been shown in Professional & Technical Services to accomplish this restructuring.
    • Additional $15,000 in Professional & Technical Services and $15,000 in Administrative & Systems in response to the request by the chair of the Nominating Committee for the administrative support of the 2004 committee.
    • $90,000 increase in Board & Public Meeting to fund travel to ICANN Board meetings for the three members of the GNSO Council and the five members of the ALAC selected by the Nominating Committee, as requested by the chair of the Nominating Committee.
    • A reduction of proposed expenses for Travel and Other Meetings ($100,000) and Administrative & Systems ($110,000), following a thorough review of budgeted items in these categories.
    • Shifting of the June 2004 ICANN Board meeting to July 2004. With this shift, most of the expenses for this meeting will fall into the next fiscal year (FY05). This will result in a reduction of Board & Public Meeting expenses in FY04 by $175,000.
    So, we now know that ICANN believes it needs to add two new staff members to a current employee head count of 24. I encourage anyone to 'sound off' about this budget, or e-mail comments to budget-comments@icann.org.
