Systematic Approach to the Allocation of Budgets for humanitarian Aid Programs: A Practical Tool for International NGOs
AbstractThis article presents a model for budgetary allocation that was used by an international NGO for its aid program. The features of the model are explained and demonstrated. The model enables NGOs to allocate budgets based on impartial, objective and transparent criteria. It also presents explicitly the policy choices that face the NGO and allows staff and funders to evaluate the costs and benefits of their choices.
