RIPE NCC Activity Plan and Budget 2016

membership ripe ncc general meeting budget activity plan news

The RIPE NCC Activity Plan and Budget 2016 is now available. This definitive document has been approved by the RIPE NCC Executive Board with input from the RIPE NCC membership. It outlines the work we will undertake in the coming year and the associated costs for each activity.

Based on the feedback the Executive Board received from the membership at the RIPE NCC General Meeting (GM) and through other feedback mechanisms, changes have been made since the draft Activity Plan and Budget was introduced in October. In order to make members aware of all updates, a new appendix has been added to the document, outlining the changes introduced.

The text changes include the following updates:

  • The draft version referred to “regional offices in Moscow and Dubai”, which does not accurately describe the RIPE NCC presence in these locations.
  • The office in Dubai is a registered regional office of the RIPE NCC, while the office space in Moscow will be simply a formal workspace for the two Russia-based staff members.
  • There is additional text on the Routing Information System (RIS) expansion following a request from the RIPE community.

There is additional budget for capital expenditures for:

  • The RIS expansion of route collectors
  • RIPE Meeting set-up improvements for IPv6 network and enhancements of presentation infrastructure.
  • Cabling set-up and installation of fibres as well as audio/visual and security infrastructure relating to the RIPE NCC Amsterdam office relocation project.

The Draft Activity Plan and Budget 2016 was discussed at the General Meeting on 18 November 2015. The minutes from that GM are available.
