Procedure for funding the ACT Forums & Secretariat

The ACT Alliance governance has agreed that the following elements will comprise the funding base for the ACT forums and secretariat:

  • A Forum fee that is paid by all members and observers into the forum where their headquarter is located.
  • An Income-Based Fee (IBF) that is paid by all organizations whose annual income is over USD 5 million. The income related fee is based on a percentage of the total income of the organization (see definition below) as set by the Governing Board.
  • An International Coordination Fee (ICF), which is levied on appeals issued by the ACT Secretariat.
  • Voluntary contributions over and above the fees will be sought for specific programmes in order to ensure the adequate funding of the core budget.
