This allocation is tentatively calculated based on averages: buses are normally rented for ₱13,000 per bus per day, while air-conditioned jeepneys are rented for ₱7,000 per jeepney per day. These vehicles will also be used to shuttle participants for the opening and closing events held outside the PICC.
|Volunteer and secretariat costs
||Honoraria and stipends for certified Wikimania 2016 volunteers.
||We plan on recruiting 50 volunteers to help manage the conference, who will be given a stipend of ₱1,500 ($33.41) for their service over the five days of the conference. This is compliant with Wikimedia Philippines Resolution No. 155, which outlines per diem guidelines for persons implementing chapter projects.
||Management costs for the core bid team.
||The bid team has decided that it will take advantage of Resolution No. 155's provisions for compensating project leads. Per diems for core bid team members will begin in July 2015, and will be paid at a rate of ₱12,000 ($267.26) per month until January 2016.

||This allocation will replace per diems that will be given to core bid team members between February and July 2016. The WMF has permitted hiring one staff member to help run the conference, and will be paid a maximum of ₱43,142.86 ($957.67) a month for seven months to implement the project in coordination with the bid team and the WMF Conference Coordinator.
