Request changes[edit]

We understand that sometimes plans change. Please use this section to request approval for changes to your grant’s budget while your project is in progress. Any variation of 20% or more to any line item in your budget must be approved by staff here before you make the change (for projects with budgets of $15,000 or more, the accepted variance is 10%).


Budget change request[edit]

  • Transports: 1000 to 1497$ (+497)
  • Consultants (map and tech freelancers): amount unchanged, recipient changed. See rational.

Rationale[edit]

Transport

The project initially planed 1 to 2 single round trip France<->India at 500US$ each. As a 2nd round-trip was eventually needed & confirmed, the initial transports budget estimate of 1000$ became too low compare to the 1497$ spending made by Hugo.

Consultants (map and tech freelancers)

As the project unfolded and we got more understanding of our technological ecosystem, we eventually push forward and took these target tasks on ourselves. We thus saved money, saved us from out-sourcing management time while doing exactly what we expected, to the cost of more code to do ourself and slower project delivery.

Hi, Yug and Planemad. I'm approving this entire request, including the additional $497 for travel, which is within range of expected international travel costs for WMF. The new total approved budget is $12997. Best wishes, Siko (WMF) (talk) 18:12, 5 January 2015 (UTC)
