OWASP Board,

There's been some discussion in the other thread regarding the proposal
from Scion.  I am including the proposal as it contains answers to many of
the questions that have been asked.  The only argument that I've really
heard against this is monetary and I truly feel like we shouldn't let that
stand in the way of hiring the best ED for the Foundation.  Given no
internal expertise in these matters, it is my recommendation that the Board
move forward with the proposal from Scion.  To that end, I have a question
and a formal motion.

Question: Would we like a six-month or twelve-month placement guarantee on
the hire?  The difference is an additional 3% of the annual salary.

*MOTION: The Board will allocate up to $45k to hire Scion Executive Search
to conduct the search, evaluation, and hiring process for the new OWASP
Executive Director.*

This is based on the high-range salary estimate of $135k and 33% number for
the 12-month placement.  This would be billed 1/3rd upon the signing of the
contract, 1/3rd 60 days later, and 1/3rd on the new ED's start date.

For the record, our ED recruitment process is stalled until we either
approve or reject this motion.
