Accounting Analysis#

This analyses two data streams that represent 2i2c’s financial activity.1 It is meant to be used for both financial analysis and projection, as well as defining a few KPIs for sustainability and efficiency.

Data source

Accounting base in AirTable that contains data that we use in these analyses. It is accessed programmatically via an API key. See these instructions to create an API key for yourself.

Financial summary#

Provides an overview of our costs, revenue, and burn rate.

Our financial summary is generated from CS&S’s monthly accounting data dumps. It is less user-friendly than the AirTable data used to define revenue, but has complete cost information, and so we use it to define our own costs and the Source of Truth for our financial situation.

What’s in this data. These contain every transaction that 2i2c has ever recorded with CS&S.

Costs#

Monthly costs broken down by major category.

Costs are generated from CS&S’s monthly accounting data dumps (see above).

Revenue#

Our revenue data is defined in the Invoices AirTable. It is synced from the CS&S AirTable that contains all invoices for 2i2c.

What’s in this data. Includes all invoices but does not contain some revenue and costs. Excludes payments to employees as well as grant-based payments.

Same plots but with grants removed because they are quite high.

Hub Service revenue with a monthly average

3-month average revenue from hub service and development: $24,992.51

Monthly contract revenue (total revenue minus grants) as a percentage of monthly costs.

Accounting tables#

Summary tables of revenue and cost by major category. Note that these are reversed in time. They begin with the latest updated month and end with our earliest month.

An expected annual total, used to calculate our expected operating costs over a single year. Calculated by either summing across the last 12 months. For months that do not have 12 previous months of historical data, we calculate the sum of the available data, and then add mean(available_data) * n_missing_months. This might introduce some skew into our data for months with unusually high costs.
