International Activities
Budget Report of Task Group IV
International Institutional Arangements

The following budget statement consists of two parts: the most elaborate part, appended below, sketches out the budgetary implications of our report as it has already been presented to the Commission. This full blown budget was drawn up without knowledge as to likely budget constraints in 2000-2001 and is designed to illustrate what it would likely cost to implement the report in its entirety. What follows below is a much reduced budget drawn up in light of the likely budget constraints for next year. In the final analysis, it will be up to another body to decide, upon the basis of formal proposals submitted--including a method by which the program can become ultimately self-financing--which will and which will not be funded. It should be noted that some proposals, e.g. a Science initiative and an African initiative, may be folded into each other, thereby reducing costs as detailed below.

Full details of the initiatives listed below are given in the appended budget.

Draft Budget of Task Group IV, International Institutional Arrangements

Please note: The following budget was developed without information as to likely budget constraints in the 2000-2001 academic year. The purpose of this budget is to illustrate the costs entailed in acting upon the premises and proposals contained in our report. (A separate, much smaller budget that reflects likely budget constraints is appended above.)
