Not all, and many only for project grants not for operations grants (like part time accounting). This is a flaw of how the process is perceive I think. >> * We need the first employee/office space budget being a specific GAC >> or FDC process (there's pros and cons in having one or the other >> handling it).

Do you > mind rephrasing? > Thanks,Abbas. GAC is not able to provide grant for a full time employee right now. The only way to get funds for that first employee is through the FDC. Which, as I said earlier, is a really heavy process. That being said, GAC can already provide funds for external contractors on specific tasks, like accounting. Is my rephrasing better? :s -- Christophe _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list Wikimediaemail@example.com Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l
