February 13, 2007B&C WG5 Budget for period July 2006 – June 2007 Working with the proposed budget created by Welch & Co. to arrive at a reasonable Budget and Fund Size in order to ensure sufficient funds are available for anticipated disbursements. The current proposed total projected cost for the NANP fund is $7,430,374, with a $1M contingency provision built in.
February 13, 2007B&C WG6 Proposed Contribution Factor for period July 2006 – June 2007 The B&C WG is responsible for the review and ultimately the approval process for the formula and calculation of the contribution factor. Option 1 is designed to exhaust the entire anticipated fund surplus. (June 30, 2007 of $1,576,965) The US carriers would be required to fund $5,768,538 with a funding factor of This option leaves only the $1,000,000 in the surplus account which is the contingency provision. Option 2 is designed to arrive at a contribution factor of exactly as projected two years ago. This scenario reduces the surplus by $1,481,955 and the total contribution by the US carriers would be $5,863,549. There would be $95,010 excess surplus that could be carried forward to subsidize contributions in the future. Option 3 is calculated not to use any of the surplus of $1,576,965. The surplus could be used in future years. The projected costs would be fully funded by contributions during the current year. This would result in a contribution factor of
