Ah, the budget. I thought I was going to have all of the money at my finger tips…. to do with it what I wanted. Sadly not. I get to order the tea and coffee and not much else really.
In terms of how the budget of £65k is to be allocated the vast majority is being put into staff costs. The expertise for a project like this is the main asset and expense and from what I’ve seen of the team so far it’s money well spent. A rough breakdown of how it is allocated is as follows:
App development (coding): 50%
Project admin and management: 20%
App design and user engagement: 14%
Travel, accommodation, subsistence: 4%
Hardware and office costs: 1.2%
Other staff costs: 11.8%
