RIPE NCC Budget 2012

The RIPE NCC income from service fees is expected to increase as a result of the increase in membership in 2011 and the expected continued increase in membership in 2012. As a result of the rejection of the Charging Scheme 2012, the income presented in the budget is based on the Charging Scheme 2011, which will continue to apply.

In the near future, the RIPE NCC will deplete its free IPv4 address pool. This will have a substantial effect on the RIPE NCC budget and its cost development over the coming period. Generally speaking, the RIPE NCC budget will increase because of the IPv4 depletion. This is a result of the increased work on ensuring accuracy of registration, including additional audits, thorough review of IPv4 requests and the impact of the "Run Out Fairly" policy.

The budgeted costs for 2012 are 7% higher than the budgeted costs for 2011. This is caused by increased outreach and training activities to support IPv6 adoption, increased costs to cater for IPv4 depletion and the enhancement of Information Services and Measurement activities. For the particulars, please see: "RIPE NCC Activity Plan 2012".
