Meta-Gov sets aside funds to ensure coverage for critical mission initiatives. While we strive to estimate term expenditures accurately, the final spending depends on pending initiatives. We anticipate that Final Expenditures will not surpass the Expected Expenses allocated for the term.

Steward + Secretary Compensation: Working Group Steward and Secretary compensation totalling $276,000 USDC.
