Overhead/Allocation This fee is part of doing business at ACM. It is not a fee for service. It is currently calculated based on the total expenses of each SIG, both general operations and conferences. To cover overhead, SIG leaders (through action of the SGB) have chosen to implement a formula based on a sliding scale, starting at 16% and decreasing by 0.8% for every $125K of expenses. Thus different SIGs and their conferences vary in the percentage used for overhead. The activities covered under overhead include general office support for SIGs and their conferences, accounting and finance support, and assistance with publications, membership, marketing, webpage/wikis, etc. For background and detail of recent discussions of the topics of overhead and allocation, please see minutes of the SGB - October 14, 2000, August 19,2001, February 23, 2002, March 16, 2003 and September 20, 2003.

Required Fund Balance ACM Policy - All subunits must maintain adequate reserves against unexpected occurrences. Formula 50% of organizational expenses + 40% of conference expenses. The Required Fund Balance is established for each SIG as part of the annual budgeting process.
