ANSIPRA's basic budget is allocated from the Norwegian Polar Institute and covers salaries of the secretariat staff, office facilities, and copies as well as postage of the bulletins. For other expenses, like translations and other work which exceeds the capacity of the staff, ANSIPRA needs sponsors.
