Results, Budget and Performance

WIPO is unusual among UN organizations in that we are almost entirely self-financing. In our Program and Budget for the 2020-21 biennium, we estimate that our overall income for the biennium will reach over 880 million Swiss francs, and that our expenditure will amount to about 768 million Swiss francs. Of our overall income, nearly 95 percent will come from the fee-paid services which we provide to users of the international systems through the PCTMadrid and Hague Systems.

Results Based Management

We use Results Based Management at WIPO to place performance at the heart of how we operate. Results Based Management guides the way we plan, manage, report and – very importantly – how we learn lessons to improve our future planning.

Program and Budget

Every two years, WIPO's Director General presents a Program and Budget to member states for approval. It details objectives, performance measures and budgetary planning for all proposed activities.rogram and Budget for the 2020/21 Biennium PDF, WIPO Program and Budget 2016/2017

WIPO Performance Reports

Every year we submit a WIPO Performance Report to our member states. This is our main accountability tool for reporting on our organizational performance.
