Staff proposal assessments are but one of many inputs into the FDC process.
With this round's assessments we (FDC staff) have included a more detailed
explanation of our methodology. The assessments reflect the work of FDC
staff who read the proposals, review past and current reports, receive
internal input from WMF Finance, Programs, Legal, and Grantmaking, and
consider a portfolio view across all proposals in this round. They do not
reflect the analysis or views of the FDC or any of its individual members.
The FDC will meet in late may to deliberate on these proposals, and will
consider these staff proposal assessments along with many other inputs into
the FDC process. For more information about the purpose of these
how they fit into the FDC process overall, please visit: http://meta
We welcome discussion about individual assessments on the discussion page
of each assessment, or discussion about the process overall on the FDC
Best regards from FDC staff!
