Just an FYI that the FY15 Draft Budget publication is delayed by the NTIA
announcement. I am personally surprised that it would have large budget
impact. Since outcomes would be FY16, this must be in respect to process in
FY15. (July 14 to June 15)   Expect more panels and advisors and funded WGs?

Asunto: [community-finance] FY15 Budget draft: Update on the process


Dear SO/AC leaders and community members,


I would like to provide an update on the Operating/Budget process: you may
have noticed that we have not published the draft FY15 Budget information
for public comment yesterday, as originally planned. Instead, the
publication of the FY15 Draft Operating plan and Budget will be delayed
until a tentative date of May 8th. Kickoff calls will be rescheduled to the
days following this date.


The main driver to this delay is the NTIA announcement and its impact on the
budget process: the management needed to change the  allocation of resources
in order to allow the organization to prioritize the USG transition work,
and therefore adjust the resource allocation of the rest of the
organization. Performing this exercise, and communicating it thoroughly with
the BFC, has added approximately 2 weeks to the process of finalizing the
draft budget.


The BFC and Board are meeting during a workshop from Monday 28th to
Wednesday 30th of April (next week). During these meetings, the full updated
schedule of the budget process until Board approval will be determined by
the BFC and reviewed for consent by the Board. We will then publish a more
comprehensive announcement relative to this timeline change.


We are not happy to delay a significant milestone of the process, but needed
to dedicate the necessary amount of time to take into account the change of
circumstances. We appreciate your patience and understanding in this
transition phase.


Best regards,
