Headline: IMF Executive Board Approves FY2018–FY2020 Medium-Term Budget

May 12, 2017

On April 28, 2017, the Executive Board of the International Monetary Fund
(IMF) approved the IMF’s administrative and capital budgets for financial
year (FY) 2018, beginning May 1, 2017, and took note of indicative budgets
for FY2019–20.

The net administrative budget for FY2018, which covers all administrative
expenses net of receipts (primarily from external sources to help support
capacity building activities and excluding lending income), has been set at
US$1,104 million. Barring a small (0.6 percent) increase in FY2017 to meet
rising information technology (IT) and physical security costs, the FY2018
budget is based on an unchanged resource envelope in real terms for the
sixth year in a row. To enable the maintenance of a flat budget while
accommodating new institutional priorities, reallocation and savings
measures amounting to 3½ percent of the previous year’s budget are planned
for implementation. As is customary, the nominal dollar budget includes an
adjustment to accommodate price increases, 3 percent for FY2018.

The FY2018 capital budget, set at US$66.4 million, provides financing for
new capital projects for building facilities and IT.
