As you can see, the draft budget is very nearly balanced with a net gain of $7,575.
The budget process was done similar to past years with budget items submitted by the leadership teams and working group leaders. You can find a sorted list of the raw budget request submissions here.
A few notable changes:
- Departments were included to allow a seamless transition to the new structure.
- Requestors were asked to break their budget down in a more detailed fashion.
- Requestors were asked to specify metrics for success.
Budget Overview by Leadership Team: Expenses by Department: Full Budget with line item totals, line item owners, request titles, assets, etc: Next Steps:
The Open Source Matters board needs to vote on this budget, and given the lateness we would like to move quickly.
So please reply below your comments and questions and I'll do my best to answer them or refer you to the best person. Note that a lot more information is available in the raw budget requests than is even is in the detailed PDF attached. You'll definitely want to review that if you have questions about a specific line item(s).
If/when this budget is approved, I will be working with the Leadership teams (and then the OSM board) to lock this budget in for 2017 also (with proportional adjustments for changes in revenue) so the project can focus on achieving their goals for a solid 18 months.
