Doubling back to this thread after recent budget discussion/questions. The
board set a goal of redoing the website presence in 2017 (RFQ,content
migration,etc...). It was unclear if the 15K request from SAC took this
into account or not?

* Marketing committee has volunteer to run an EOI/RFQ process for an
external vendor to do the work (see

* Although we reached out to Alex Mandel it was unclear if the 15K request
from SAC took this initiative into account?

Since it was unclear we have penciled in 8K for SAC as part of
budget/fundraising target. The draft budget
https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/OSGeo_Budget_2017 has the high level outline.

Should fund raising target be met by end of January go/no-go the final
budget for SAC would be 23k. It would be great if a member of SAC could be
involved in the EOI / RFQ process (and present for the go/no-go decision).
