Budget Application

The New Budget Application Process

In 2018 introduced a new budget application process:

  1. Ideas for projects are submitted.
  2. Association members give feedback on the ideas.
  3. The Expert Advisory Board selects the best ideas, provides an approximate budget.
  4. The Expert Advisory Board requests a formal budget application. People with similar ideas will be asked to collaborate on a single application.
  5. A budget is assigned to the project, providing the formal budget application meets the Expert Advisory Board's expectations.

When is the Next Deadline?

The next budget application will end at October 14th 2018.

Do it Like Mike

Mike is an open source enthusiast. He has seen the call for applications for next year's budget, and he would like to apply for funding for his project.

Mike sits down to write an attractive proposal.

Mike fills out the ideas  Application Form until 7th of October 2018.

The TYPO3 Association collects the Budget Applications for the Expert Advisory Board (EAB). The EAB is responsible for the budget process, and its members are elected by the TYPO3 Association.

The Expert Advisory Board summarizes the budget applications. They get back to Mike with their questions and requests clarification on a couple of points.

After 28th October, the accepted Budget Applications are presented online. Anyone—even non-members—can ask questions in an online forum.

The members of the TYPO3 Association help prioritize the budgets in an online poll in November. The EAB takes results into account.

The EAB discusses and decides the final budget distribution in and after their budget meeting at the end of November.

If the budget is accepted, Mike fills in the Budget Application. It consists of a form and a spreadsheet. Both contain example information, and he takes care to remove it.

Mike emails his completed Budget Application to the TYPO3 Association at budget(at)typo3.org before 15th December. That is the deadline, and the Association discards all applications received after that date.

The final budget is published at the end of December. Mike's application has been approved!

Mike signs a budget agreement, and he receives information about budget administration and reporting from the EAB.

The EAB will contact Mike at regular intervals throughout the year, requesting status updates for his project. They will also be there to help solve issues along the way. 

Do it like Mike!

Of course, Mike is a fictitious character. He could be you, or anyone else.
