In November 2019 the IETF Administration LLC published a draft of its 2020 budget along with a detailed narrative for community feedback. This IETF Administration LLC 2020 Budget has now been finalised and approved by the LLC Board. In developing this budget the LLC continues to give careful consideration to each budget request as well as the needs of the community as a whole.
Only minor changes have been made to the budget since the draft, including:
- Adjusted staffing budgets to reflect actual compensation and delay employment of a fundraiser until the strategy is better developed.
- Adjusted some Tools contracts to reflect the negotiated fee.
- Better estimation of some travel costs.
These changes add approx $100k to expenditure from the draft budget with no effect on income.
