HI OWASP leaders,

Somehow we failed to announce this properly, so here are the details of the
current OWASP 150k investment plan that the board approved at the last OWASP
AppSec DC in Irvine (you can see the full agenda
here<http://www.owasp.org/index.php/September_8,_2010>and what was
here <http://www.owasp.org/index.php/Talk:September_8,_2010>)

*2. Based on budget, move approx. 200k to a long term CD *

*3. Every (6) months review and invest in long term goals approx 150k*

   - *50k for the OWASP Summit 2011*
   - *9k has been approved to proceed and hire Sandra and 6k for operational
   - *30k pre-approved budget for OWASP Leaders (chapters and projects) -
   starting with 5k Testing Guide, 5k Developer Guide and 5k Testing Guide (to
   be defined within 30days)*
      - *up to 500 USD the leader can proactively spend the money (and then
      put the details on the WIKI)*
      - *up to 2500 USD the leader needs to publish the details on the WIKI
      and if there is no comment/issue the expenditure is approved*
   - *9k has been approved to proceed and hire _______ and 6k for
   operational charges for college chapters program.*
   - *10k for project review funds (to be distributed as "OPoints"). OWASP
   Points has been approved for 20 projects reviews. Each project review
   rewards with travel/hotel to come to OWASP conferences*
   - *30k approved for board driven initiatives*

Item #2 are the current OWASP annual operation expenses (i.e. OWASP has
enough money in the bank to run for 1 year without income)

Item #3 is the current 150k USD investment plan (which will be evaluated and
revised at the next Summit (Feb 2011))

The number  hat is more relevant to you (OWASP Leaders) is the 30k which has
been allocated to you and it is your responsibility to use it wisely :)
