OW2 Fees FAQ

OW2 Fees FAQ

  • Has OW2 recently changed its fees?

    Yes. OW2 was launched in 2007 and the fees that were decided then have been current over the 2007-2009 period. A new fee structure has been decided for the 2010-2012 period.

  • How was the change decided?

    When we first started working on the 2010 budget, mid-2009, it soon appeared that the then-current fee structure was not sustainable. A new fee structure was proposed by the CEO and discussed at Board level. On January 2010, the board voted te new fee structure unanimously.

  • Why have you increased the fees?

    The previous fee structure supposed a strong in-kind contribution from the membership. In-kind contribution is very problematic to implement, to evaluate and to manage. The fee increase aims at providing the Management Office with sufficient and predictable resources.

  • Isn't there a risk of membership attrition?

    Yes. y.
