Table 1: Cumulative Percentage Receipt of Current R.P. Assessments
Regular Programme Contributions as at 31 October 2013
The percentage of 2013 assessed contributions paid to the Organization by Member Nations in the first ten months of the year was 72.0 percent, a rate of receipt higher than that for the equivalent period in 2012 (67.7 percent).
Based on Members’ past payment patterns, the Regular Programme cash level for 2013 is expected to be sufficient to cover operational needs. At the same time, as at 31 October 2013 prior years’ unpaid assessments stand at USD 15.9 million (consolidated).
Timely payment by Members of their assessments ensures that FAO meets the operating cash requirements for the Programme of Work without recourse to statutory reserves or to external borrowing.
Table 1 below shows the cumulative percentage rate of receipts of Regular Programme contributions by quarter over the past four years. 4th quarter 2013 is as at 31 October 2013. The graph reflects the actual percentage rate of receipts versus a hypothetical even rate of receipt of 25% per quarter (as represented by the red line).
