Income[edit source]

I added the income section to this document somewhat unexpectedly, and without prior discussion - sorry for doing that. Richard removed it, saying "income is not technically part of the program,nor does it really 'progress'." I've added it back saying "Given income comes in throughout the year, keeping track of its progress is somewhat important". The sections are also present in the draft 2013 Budget.

The reason why I included it is that our funding does come in throughout the year - e.g. in the case of direct debits, we receive donations monthly. So we can track the progress of our income over the course of the year in the same way that we can keep track of expenditure. We already report most of these figures via the monthly reports, so these sections could simply point to those reports if that's the easiest thing to do. However, it would be good to collate that information here so that it's collected in one place rather than spread over multiple pages.

It would be good to talk about this and figure out what's the best approach, though, particularly while these documents are still being drafted for the first time. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 21:29, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
