The FAmSCo budget rolls up into the larger Community Architecture expenses. On that page, FAmSCo's budget is represented by the "Regional support" line item.
The current quarter is FY10 Q4 (December 2009 - February 2010).
The total budget for the quarter is $32,000.
As of January 31, 2010:
- Total spent and fully expensed and/or reimbursed: $13,195
- Estimated amount that has not yet been expensed and/or reimbursed: $1,000
At the current pace, we are going to finish the quarter well under budget. This is fine if there are no urgent needs worldwide, but it seems like the flow of money into the regions that need it is currently stalled.
In short, FAmSCo is worried about what seems to be very little spending in LATAM, India, and APAC. We still have about two weeks left in this quarter to correct that, but it requires those regions to get their shopping lists together quickly. In your regional meetings, please make a list of the things that you need, and bring that discussion to the mailing list.
