OSGeo Budget 2017
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 70000 split across several goals:
|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 we can have a baseline for our 2017 budget:
|Board: travel||10000||director & president travel (outreach)|
|Board: internal events||15000||codesprints, meetings, community building, sponsoring students|
|Board: outreach events||5000|
The UNCommittee expectation of 10000 is based on its costs in 2016 (when it was only in operation for half the year). The UN represents one of the largest bodies of GIS users in the world making this an important strategic relationship for OSGeo.
