Lyon, april 2012

Finances

Situation

  • income 2011

  • expenses

    • HF
      • 2011 Lisbon 4,400 €
      • 2011 Zuerich 6,400 €
      • 2012 Lyon (?) 7,500 €
  • Japanese gold sponsor

Problems

  • costs are rising more than incomes
    • still positive balance though
  • handling of donations cumbersome (by hand)
  • accounting is more complex than we would like
    • some of the expenses are paid directly by local sponsors
  • fiscal requests: sponsoring receipt for tax office

Proposals

  • split the functions of Treasurer (Horst) and PSC
    • more formal annual and HF budgets
  • automatic handling of donations, e.g.
  • QGIS friendly courses
  • money from OSGEO (GSoC)?
  • from Otto: a wiki page with:
    • tasks
    • developer (with contact address)
    • amount requested
    • list of people willing to donate
