[Wikimedia-l] FDC recommendation round 2 announced

Dariusz Jemielniak-3
Hello friends,

The Funds Dissemination Committee meets twice annually to help make
decisions about how to effectively allocate movement funds to achieve the
Wikimedia movement's mission, vision, and strategy. [1]

On behalf of the committee, I am pleased to announce that Round 2 2013-2014
recommendations to the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees have now been
posted on Meta [2]:
http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/FDC_portal/FDC_recommendations/2013-2014_round2

The WMF Board will make their decision on these recommendations by 1 July
2014.

For the second round of this fiscal year, the committee received four
proposals.  [3] These four proposals came from two chapters, WMF and one
non-Wikimedia organization, totaling requests of '''$1.56''' million USD.
 Prior to our face-to-face deliberations in Frankfurt from 21st-24th May,
the FDC reviewed the proposals in careful detail, aided by staff
assessments and analysis on programs, finances, grant compliance and
history, as well as community comments on the proposals. Staff presented an
overview of these findings to the FDC during the deliberations. The FDC and
FDC staff also asked clarifying questions to the entities on the proposal
form discussion pages during the four-week community review period (and
prior to the publishing of staff assessments), and observed the discussions
about the proposals.

The committee thanks all organizations that submitted proposals, as it
required significant effort to both create the proposal and to respond to
the questions and feedback from the community, FDC, and FDC staff.  We
sincerely appreciate them all for this work.

For formal complaints or appeals about the recommendations, there is a
separate process that entities should follow. Note that at the request of
many stakeholders, we are clarifying the complaints and appeals terminology
so that complaints are made about the process to the ombudsperson and
appeals on the recommendations are made to the WMF Board representatives.
These are further explained below:

Any organization that would like to submit an appeal on the FDC’s Round 2
recommendation should submit it to the Board representatives to the FDC by
'''end of day UTC 8 June 2014''' in accordance with the appeal process
outlined in the FDC Framework. The process is as follows:

Appeals to the WMF Board on the recommendations of the FDC (formerly called
complaints, terminology changed to avoid further confusion):

* A formal appeal to challenge the FDC’s recommendation should be in the
form of a 500-or-fewer word summary directed to the two non-voting WMF
Board representatives to the FDC (Patricio Lorente and Bishakha Datta).

* The appeal should be submitted on-wiki through the FDC portal page
designated for this purpose. [4]

* Formal appeals can be submitted only by the Board Chair of a
funding-seeking organization.

* Formal appeals must be filed within seven days of the deadline for
submission of the FDC slate of recommendations to the WMF Board, even if
the recommendations are published before the deadline for the
recommendations i.e. end-of-day '''1 June 2014'''. The deadline for appeals
is the end-of-day UTC on '''8 June 2014'''.

* These board representatives will present the appeal to the WMF Board at
the same time as the Board considers the FDC recommendation. Responses to
an appeal will be made alongside the overall decision on the FDC
recommendations, i.e. by end-of-day UTC '''1 July 2014'''.

* Any planned or approved disbursements to the organization filing an
appeal will be put on hold until the appeal is resolved.

* If the WMF Board's consideration of the appeal results in an amendment of
the FDC's recommendations (which is expected only in extraordinary
circumstances), the WMF Board may choose to release extra funds from the
WMF reserves to provide additional funds not allocated by the FDC's initial
recommendation.

* The Ombudsperson, as well as members of the WMF Board other than the
Board representatives, may participate in the investigation if approved by
the Chair of the WMF Board.

Complaints to the ombudsperson about the FDC process (formerly called
appeals):

* A complaint about the FDC process can be filed by anyone with the
Ombudsperson and can be made any time during a particular round of the FDC
process (e.g. in this instance, from start '''1 April 2014''').

* The complaint should be submitted on wiki, through the FDC portal page
designated for this purpose [5]

* The ombudsperson will receive and publicly document the complaint, and
investigate the complaint, as needed.

On behalf of the FDC,

"pundit" Dariusz Jemielniak (FDC Chair)

Hi Dariusz (& Everyone)

On behalf of the Board of Trustees allow me to once again thank the FDC and involved WMF Staff members for all the work that has gone into this round. I am looking forward to discussing the future of the FDC with you and all the others in the coming days as we convene with the FDC Advisory Group.

Also thanks to all those who have participated in the public discussions on the different proposals, it is what makes us truly unique as an organisation!

Thank you,

Re: [Wikimedia-l] FDC recommendation round 2 announced

Itzik Edri
+1

I want to join Jat-Bart and thanks the FDC for the great work they did
again. I'm also happy to see improvement in the process and to see that
this round the FDC published more detailed feedback of their
recommendations.

I found their feedback of the WMF proposal as a very mature and profound,
and highlight some of us a very interesting issues to look for, and I know
that wasn't been so easy to do so.

I also want to congratulate WMFR for being the first chapter over the lasts
2 rounds to be recommended to be fully funded, although they requested 50%
higher allocation from the last year allocation. WMFR proposal is indeed
very professional and interesting one which posed a high bar for everyone
on the next rounds. Well done WMFR!

Re: [Wikimedia-l] FDC recommendation round 2 announced

Samuel Klein-4
In reply to this post by Dariusz Jemielniak-3
Dear Dariusz and FDC,

Thank you for this fine recommendation.  I just read through it for
the first time (of many, I expect), and the analyses are clearly
getting crisper over time. There are many constructive details packed
into each review, and the results are relevant both to the applying
organizations, and to how we plan for the future.


I am glad to see the analysis of the excellent Wikimedia France
proposal.   And both the CIS and the Wikimedia Norge proposals seem to
have been complicated in their own way, but were handled smoothly.

The analysis of WMF's own proposal is clear and rewardingly thorough.
(Other organizations may be jealous and ask for a more detailed report
next time)
A few points I found particularly useful: the focus on areas where we
need clearer goals + measures, the detailed feedback on technical
changes, and the observation that legal work is a significant part of
our budget and work, and central to our mission, but here was lumped
in with administration.  The last point is indicative of a larger
blind spot, I think.

I also appreciate the emphasis on regular checks of our work against a
strategy, and the need to organize an effective transition to new
strategic goals. The suggestions for a community-led strategy advisory
group, and for a pool of global metrics for [cross-]evaluation, are
well considered.  Both could also make the FDC's work easier in the
future...

Congratulations on this work.  And good luck to those FDC advisors
meeting over the coming days.

Sam.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] FDC recommendation round 2 announced

Dariusz Jemielniak-3
Dear Lodewijk,

thank you! I cannot promise this level of detail when we have many more
participants in Round 1 next year (if the FDC process continues), but we'll
do our best to aim for detailed feedback. Encouragement from the community
means a lot to us, and I appreciate it.

best,

Dariusz Jemielniak, "pundit"

Re: [Wikimedia-l] FDC recommendation round 2 announced

David Cuenca Tudela
After reading the report I really hope that the FDC continues prospering
and growing. There are very insightful recommendations to be found there
and I hope they are put into practice.

I also think that this kind of report reinforces and shows in full splendor
the spirit of community participation and co-governance that many of us we
feel identified with.

Thanks for having shown how a good report should look like.
