Find attached copies of the contracts  I promised to provide during
yesterday’s meeting.  I hope those considering options for management
support of future FOSS4G events find these two very different approaches
helpful to their deliberations.  ****

As you are probably aware, for the International event in Denver, GITA and
OSGeo agreed to a fixed cost contract for all services provided.  I believe
the effective percentage charge was in the ballpark of 30% of profit.  For
the upcoming North American event, SharedGeo and OSGeo agreed to a highly
flexible contract which allows for tailoring of services as determined by
the Local Organizing Committee.  Consequently, the payment concept is cost
plus 3%.  Both approaches have pluses and minuses.  I think the GITA model
probably makes sense for the international event, whereas the flexible
approach is probably a better model for regional events.****

** **

Anyway, since I was sitting in on your behalf, thought best that you pass
along with any comments you might want to add.  ****

Let me know if there is anything else folks might need or want to look at.**

All My Best,****
