  1. The DVD duplication has excess $27 remained due to local currency weakening against US dollar. This $27 is returning.
  2. For third row the software expert payment some file processing job performance did not meet our requirement hence $208 is returning. The total returning budget is 27+208=$235
  3. For 5th row we initially had 10 volunteers then 9 and now 8 are working so some portion of this amount will be returned in the end of the project.
  4. For 7th row of budget is still yet to be spent for planned poster printing.
  5. From monthly planned budget the $112 was spent for unexpected Social security tax payment and we are requesting budget adjustment for this.
  6. The remainder amount of $212 in our account is including the whole of 7th row and 5th row planned budget spendings and some portion of 2nd row planned budget spendings.
  7. From initially received $3,833 first portion budget on January 18th 2017 currently $3,274 is spent and $235 is in return position, $212 is budget remainder yet to be spent, $112 is unexpected Social security spending hence the final current balancing is $3,833 = $3,274 + $235 + $212 + $112.

  1. For 2nd row and 3rd row of the budget we faced Social security tax payment and requesting $164 for this. The 11% of Social security tax of 2nd line $1,200 plus 3rd line of $292 is $164.
  2. From the planned budget $112 is spent for non planned Social security tax payment for 2nd row and 3rd row of the budget spendings during January and February. And this non planned spending compensating is requested.
  3. For typing the hand written articles into digital format 600 pages of typing service fee of $279 budget addition is requested.
  • The total budget addition request is $164 + $112 + $279 = $555
  • And we have excess $235 is in return position in our current budget.


The project activities needed certain financial adjustments at item 2 and 3 and the typing expense will allow us to more concentrate on project development and research. Orgio89 (talk) 13:50, 26 April 2017 (UTC)
