									                                                      Guidance on the WIG Calculator and how to complete it

Introduction            The WIG calculator helps applicants and the FC set out the proposed work, their standard costs, the profile of work and
                        from this will calculate the level of grant that will be offered over the period of the contract. It ensures the latest standard
                        cost rates can be used and updates made more quickly where appropriate.

                        A separate WIG calculator needs to be completed for each WIG fund and for each individual work group or unrelated
                        work item within that fund. For example, an application for WIG SSSI and priority access would normally require 2
                        calculators completing. If a WIG has 7 different work items that are not reliant on one another (i.e. can not be classed as
                        a 'work group' as for example thinning and extraction may be viewed as linked work items) we suggest copying and
                        pasting the appropriate number of worksheets (in this case 7) into the wig calculator at the beginning of the process. You
                        may want to complete details that will remain the same for all the worksheets (for example wig fund, region etc.) before
                        copying and pasting in the new work sheets.

                        To copy the template, right click on the 'Template" tab at the bottom and select "Move or Copy", then tick the "Create a
                        copy" box and press OK. A new sheet "template (2)" will be created. Repeat as many times as is required

                        In order to fill in the calculator, we recommend you first print off the list of standard costs that are on the worksheet
                        "standardcosts" - this will provide easy reference when filling in the work details

                        Applicants need to fill in the yellow boxes on the form and the spreadsheet will identify the standard costs, calculate the
                        total cost and total grant. The Forestry Commission will complete those sections in green. Some of the white boxes will
                        automatically be populated based on what you enter in the yellow boxes. You cannot edit any other part of the form
                        except the yellow boxes

Completing the spreadsheet
Selecting the correct First of all make sure you are using the up to date version of the calculator. The latest version of the calculator is
calculator            available at www.forestry.gov.uk/ewgs-wig, or from your local FC office

WIG Fund                Choose the generic WIG fund you're applying for from the drop down list

Specific fund           Describe the specific fund (if there is one) e.g. "East Midlands Bird WIG", "South West Ancient Woodland Priority Areas"

Property name           Enter the name of the property, which should match form EWGS 1

Region                  Choose which region your woodland is located from the drop down list

Summary of operation Briefly describe why the work is being proposed, what you hope to achieve and any general details of the operation that
/ aims               may be appropriate to note

Work areas (optional) You can fill this in if the project covers most or all of these work areas. If you have completed column 3 of the work
                      details table there is no need to fill this section in

Area of work            This should normally add up to the total area of the work areas affected, unless the work is only happening in particular
                        parts of the work area

Work Details
Code                    Enter the code for the operation you wish to carry out, for example A14 for picnic bench with table, or F1 for stock
                        fencing. When you enter the code, other parts of the table should automatically populate themselves

Quantity                Enter the number of units you propose, noting what units the standard costs use. For example, for 400 metres of fencing
                        you should enter 400; if you propose producing 1000 A4 public access leaflets, these are measured in units of 500
                        leaflets so you should enter a quantity of 2
Work areas affected     List the work areas where each operation will take place. If you have completed the earlier work area section there is no
                        need to fill this in unless you need to highlight the location of particular work

Notes                   Use this section to add brief additional information about the operation

Claim year profile      Pick the claim years you plan to carry out the work from the drop down lists. Enter the percentage against each year,
                        based on when you intend to carry out the work. The total percentage will appear in red unless it totals 100%

Further notes           This section can be used to add any extra information that may be of relevance

Supervision costs       If supervision is required, this should be added as the final work detail, using code "L2" (agent hourly rate)

Timber Income           If there is income from an operation, this should be deducted using the Code "X100" which works in multiples of £100
                        income. Apply the claim year profile as with the linked operation e.g. thinning, coppicing

Spreadsheet results
                        Once you have filled in the yellow boxes, the orange section of the calculator shows:
                        - the total for the whole project
                        - what the grant contribution will be
                        - how the grant will be paid over the 5 years, based on your proposed work profile

                        If the orange section does not present values, it means a section of the form has not been completed fully
                                                                                                                                         Important note: due to system rounding, the total costs and grants may vary slightly, normally by no more than £20.
