RIPE NCC Activity Plan and Budget 2021 Published

budget activity plan news

The RIPE NCC Activity Plan and Budget 2021 is now available. This definitive document has been approved by the RIPE NCC Executive Board with input from our membership. It outlines the work we will undertake in the coming year and the associated costs for each activity.

Key points in this year's Activity Plan and Budget:

  • Our expenses will decrease by 3%
  • We will grow our FTE count from 165 to 170 (3%)
  • We now expect to end 2021 with 23,000 LIR accounts (down from 25,000 in the draft Activity Plan and Budget)
  • The membership fee remains at EUR 1,400 per LIR account
  • The cost per LIR is EUR 1,459 – down slightly from EUR 1,498 in the 2020 budget

A section at the end of the document notes changes since the draft was published in September, which are relatively small. However, we have clarified that we plan to retire our RPKI Validator in 2021, in response to feedback on the draft Activity Plan and Budget.
