FLICC FLICC/FEDLINK
FY 2000 Budget & Fee Questionnaire

The FLICC Budget and Finance Working Group would like your input into FEDLINK's FY 2000 budget and fee planning. Your answers to this brief questionnaire will help us project whether there are likely to be any significant changes in the way members use the FEDLINK program. With this information, we will be better able to project FEDLINK's costs and revenues and to set the transfer pay and direct pay fees fairly.

Please respond by April 26, 1999. The FY 2000 budget and fee proposal will be presented at the semi-annual FEDLINK membership meeting on April 29, 1999 and will be mailed to members for formal comment in June. Thank you for your help.
