Working Group Funding Authorization
Whereas, Occupy Boston has, at last count, 54 working groups listed on its website, and
Whereas, the GA has previously authorized the Financial Accountability Working Group to disburse up to $100 per week to working groups, and
Whereas, it is important to have a transparent process for establishing minimum standards for working group activity and membership for the purpose of receiving Occupy Boston funding,
The Financial Accountability Working Group Proposed the following process for authorizing working groups to receive Occupy Boston funds:
The process for obtaining authorization consists of three steps:
- The working group completes a Request for Occupy Boston Working Group Funding Authorization form, which includes, at a minimum:
If a working group is denied authorization for funding from FAWG, it may ask FAWG to reconsider its decision. If upon reconsideration, FAWG again determines that the working group does not meet the minimum requirements, as stated above, the working group may bring its proposal for funding authorization directly to General Assembly.
Once a Working Group has been authorized for funding, actual requests for funding should follow the Cash Disbursement Policy and Procedure.
FAWG asks that each Working Groups that is authorized for funding should send a liaison to at least one FAWG meeting per month.
