The IETF Administration LLC has reforecast its 2020 budget to address the significant changes in the underlying assumptions since the original budget was created.

The IETF Administration LLC published a 2020 budget back in January 2020 but since then the COVID-19 pandemic has led to significant changes in the underlying assumptions and so the budget has been reforecast. The main changes incorporated in this reforecast are:

  • Actual figures for IETF 107
  • Assume that IETF 108 and IETF 109 will be fully online.
  • Estimating an insurance payout for our IETF 107 and IETF 108 claims.
  • No permanent fundraiser appointed until next year
  • No strategic retreats by any group
  • Increase in tools spend

The investment income has not been reforecast due to exceptional market volatility.
