IETF Administration LLC 2020 Budget Reforecast

  • Jay DaleyIETF Executive Director

27 Aug 2020

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.
