I will not make the upcoming ALAC call, but I think it will be useful if
this issue is discussed..

Objet : [ALAC-LT] Finance and Budget Subcommitee (FBSC)


As you know, our track record on special budget requests for this 

current budget year was rather poor. To be more specific, we had one 

project approved, an IGF workshop. The MAG did not approve it, and 

accordingly we received nothing. (We have benefited from CROPP which 

was a funded project, but not due to any explicit request we made.)


To turn that around, I think that we will have to make a number of changes.


- For composition of the FBSC, I am thinking of suggesting the following:

    - two members per region, one from the ALAC and one a RALO leader

    - the RALO leader (either the Chair, a Vice-chair  or Secretariat 

would be the person in the RALO responsible for overseeing (and 

filtering) RALO request.


- The FBSC will make choices to ensure that what we are submitting is 

high quality and more likely to get accepted.


- We will set some guidelines for RALO and overall ALAC requests to 

try to ensure that the quality is there.


- Although past success is not an assured guideline - we will 

carefully review what kinds of projects are being funded 





- In the past, we have largely depended on RALO requests. I think 

that we may want to partially shift gears and also look at ALAC initiatives.

    - One of these may be a request to expand the work-week, most 

likely the Saturday before the week, but this will take a lot more


Based on his past experience, I have requested that Tijani stay on 

the FBSC and play a lead roll. I will chair the SC and preferably not 

also represent NARALO.


May I quickly have thoughts on this. I would like to put this 

proposal, or some evolution of it, on the agenda of the forthcoming 

ALAC meeting for further discussion and perhaps approval.
