Remaining funds – questionsEdit

Hi @DSaroyan (WMF): thank you so much for all your assistance throughout this project! I have one last favor to ask. Can you please review the two matters I have described in the Remaining funds section? Once they are discussed and a decision is made, I can submit the report. Thanks again!

Request approvedEdit

Hello Gikü, thanks for posting a request under the Remaining Funds section of your final report. Please find my responses inline below:

  • I gave SPPN (photo-expedition team) $50 from my own pocket, in order to encourage them to travel more. Given that the spent amount adds up to $53 less than the planned amount, can I use them to reimburse my aforementioned $50? If not, I will return them to WMF.
  • Yes, please feel free to use the remaining amount to reimburse travel costs of photo-expedition team. The remaining 3 USD can be used for other mission-aligned activities without any reporting requirements. I am approving this reallocation request.
  • I did not hand out all the prizes yet, so I don't have the signed confirmations of last three winners yet. Two of them (SerKo Photography – lottery winner – and Emile var Emreis – first place winner) are abroad, the third (Elena Ioan) can't be contacted. Are these prizes considered as not distributed within the grant period and thus should be returned? Or am I allowed to postpone the meeting with them to September, when they return from abroad? What to do with the untraceable winner, should I re-run the lottery one more time to find another winner and give ''that'' person the prize?
  • I recommend extending the grant end date to September 30, to allow you more time to distribute the prizes. What do you think?

Looking forward to hearing from you. Best regards, DSaroyan (WMF) (talk) 09:48, 31 August 2021 (UTC)
