The board is taking a different approach to the 2017 budget, dividing up by committee. We have reached out to each committee for guidance on their 2017 requirements.

The following DRAFT placeholder is based on the 2016 budget; broken down by committee to get an idea of proposed spending.


For OSGeo Budget 2016 the board budgeted 70k split across several goals.

Activity Budget Spent Notes
Admin 8000 n/a administration overhead
Insurance 3000 3000 officer liability insurance
SAC 13000 6000 infrastructure and online presence
Outreach 15000 4000 starter kits, LiveDVD/USB, Marketing, OSGeo Student Awards
Travel 15000 7000 director & president travel - facilitate interaction with external parties (UN, OGC,...)
Events 20000 20000 OSGeo internal (townhall, codesprint, ) and external (e.g.. ISPRS, EGU, GWF...) events

This represents a total budget of 75000, of which the community managed to spend 41000.

If we directly migrate 2016 budget into a breakdown by committee:

  • 2017 OSGeo Board Budget: $40k
    • $10k admin
