Budget change request[edit]

Item description Initial Approved amount Amount spent allotted amount to another post Alotted amount from another post New proposed budget New unspent budget Rationale
Nantes 3600CHF -628.41CHF -1722CHF 0CHF 2028CHF 1400CHF we wish to move 1722 CHF from the Nantes budget to the transport budget as Nantes has been spending as much as expected when the transport post is the most needed
Paris 3300CHF -1157CHF -2124CHF 331.40CHF 1507CHF 350CHF we wish to move 2124 CHF from the Paris budget to the transport budget as transport is the most needed to allow people to travel to events
Grenoble 3600CHF -104.32CHF -3095CHF 0CHF 505CHF 400.88CHF we wish to move 3095 CHF from the Grenoble budget to a new local group Méditerranée as Grenoble is due to tohe planned activities in 2018 not able to sustain its initial commitment.
Sion 3600CHF -757.60CHF -331.40CHF 0CHF 3268.60CHF 2511CHF we wish to move 331.40 CHF from the Sion budget to the website funding as we have spent 331.40CHF more than expected to book domain names







we wish to move 3095CHF from the Grenoble budget to the funding of the mediterranean group which is very active and has planned events in Marseille and in the Hérault department

Geneva 1200CHF -814CHF 0CHF 0CHF 1200CHF 396CHF no changes, apart from the fact that due to small presence in the wikipermanences we have transformed this activity in a online contest which is more popular. This is due to the fact that having editathons on LGBTIQ issues locally is more challenging than a more general theme. The University of Geneva has accepted to finance the prizes as this is in relation to an exhibition organized by the equal opportunity office. The editathons in Lestime are still being held.

Travel expenses







we request to use 1722 from the Nantes budget and 2124CHF from the Paris budget to enable financing travelling expenses for people among the various groups to go to each other's events when this was not planned in the initial budget (only Nantes has allotted 900 CHF to travelling see discussion page of the grant). This type of funding is the most needed to allow people with experience to go and share their knowledge, and for local contributors to have access to other organized events.


The changes requested above are due to the fact that some local groups have been finding it difficult to spend the funds according to the initial allotted budget , that another group initially not planned (in Marseille and Montpellier) has emmerged, and that the amount asked for funding transport has been clearly underestimated in the initial grant proposal.
