Technical notes

  • “Admin.” is an abbreviation for General and Administrative costs
  • The cost per unit does not represent the “price” of an activity. Many factors will affect the efficiency metrics for each category. For example, the cost per unit will vary depending on the volume of wells constructed, the type of wells constructed, the type of rehabilitation work needed to repair a specific well, etc.
  • Revenue represents funds raised in the fiscal year. Revenue in excess of annual expenses is put to use in the following fiscal year. As most funds are secured in October-January, we maintain a healthy surplus each year to pay for program activities from April-October.
