IUCr 1993 Triennial Financial Report - General Fund

Table 3 shows the accounts for the General Fund (GF) and Table 4 compares these accounts for the triennium with the budget approved by the Bordeaux General Assembly. This fund carries the income and expenditure related to the IUCr's administration and its regular scientific activities other than publications. The income has two main sources, the subscriptions from Adhering Bodies and the interest income from investments and bank accounts. The subscriptions from Adhering Bodies are based on the unit contribution, which has been CHF890 for all three years. The total number of membership units was 150 for 1990, 149 for 1991, and 148 for 1992, while the budget was based on 150 units for each year. The yield from investments exceeds the budgeted amount by CHF 263597. This positive difference makes it possible for the IUCr to expand its scientific activities somewhat faster than planned.

The amount charged to the journals is calculated as 30% of the general administration costs of the IUCr, including the work of the Executive Secretary and his office and of the General Secretary and Treasurer. The Executive Committee met annually, while the Finance Committee held two meetings each year. The cost of these meetings varies, as seen from Table 3, depending on the location and the circumstances. In Table 4 they are included in the expenses of administrative meetings, together with the costs of the report of the Perth General Assembly and Congress in 1987 and the IUCr representatives on other bodies. The expenses of scientific meetings in Table 4 include the travel grants for the Bordeaux Congress in 1990, the cost of the meeting in 1992 of the Programme Committee for the Beijing Congress, the expenses of the non-publishing Commissions and the Working Party on Crystallographic Information, and financial support to meetings and Schools. The financial support for young scientists attending meetings and Schools is charged to the Research and Education Fund, see Table 13.

During the triennium CHF20 000 was transferred to the Ewald Fund.
