Public Interest Users on Limited Budgets — Fee Waivers Available
For public interest users on limited budgets, registration allows you to request a fee waiver so that all features of the Console are free to access. Upon requesting a fee waiver, our team will respond as soon as possible.
Other Users — Sliding Scale Subscription Fees
For all other users, fees are based on a sliding scale based on the size of the user’s operating budget, and subscriptions are available by month or year as follows:
|Operating Budget||Monthly Plan||Annual Plan|
|$1 to $10 million||$500||$5,000|
Each registered account includes three users, with the option of adding up to seven additional users at 10 percent of the purchase price each (prorated).
Why Charge Fees?
Accountability Counsel is a non-profit organization committed to the sustainable maintenance and development of the Accountability Console over the long term. To date, we have funded the multiple years of development of the Console through philanthropic core support. However, we are requesting that those in a position to pay for their use of the Console do so to ensure access for local communities, to keep it functioning as a live tool, and to support our work to add functionality over time.
Cancellation and Refunds
Registered account holders can cancel their accounts or turn off automatic billing at any time from their settings page, or by contacting us. To request a refund for a previously processed payment, please contact us.
How is Revenue Handled?
Revenue generated through user fees enters a dedicated account that is then transferred in a lump sum on a monthly basis into Accountability Counsel’s general operating fund. We review revenue to avoid actual or potential conflicts of interest in accordance with Accountability Counsel’s Gift and Revenue Acceptance Policy.Register Account
