Sample Budget for InfoDev Planning Grant : LUSENET : Country Gateways : One Thread

How could a sample budget for InfoDev planning grants be composed?

-- Oleg Petrov (, September 24, 2000


A sample budget (3-6 months) could be as follows:

I. Salaries: Project Management Fee (including rent): $10,000 Business Plan team: $10,000 Content Team: $10,000 Strategy Team: $5,000 Partnerships Coordinator (optional): $3,000 Technology Coordinator (optional): $2,000 II. Materials: $3,000 III. Travel costs: $2,000 IV. Other costs: $5,000

Total: $50,000

Larger, more expensive countries (Russia, Turkey, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Romania) could apply for more, smaller and less expensive - for less.

Now what do we do with countries which have largely completed Business Plan, e-readiness and Project Documents preparation? There are three solutions: 1. Transfer part of the Strategy and Business Plan budget to Content/community development. 2. Apply for less money. 3. Come up with compelling ideas on how to spend the extra planning funds.
