The secretariat is proposing that the Executive Board should adopt, possibly on a provisional basis, the scale of assessment approved by the QAU Assembly of Heads of State and Government in 1977 (See attachment) for contributions by member States of the centre towards its regular budget. However, each country’s percentage contribution within the OAU scheme will have to be recalculated in order to bring out the corresponding percentage contribution applicable to the Center’s membership composition and size. This difficulty with this formula is that it may exaggerate the assessment for some members of the centre. A basis for determining contributions different from the QAU scheme would therefore be desirable in the long-term, given also the different structures and functions of the two organizations.
