Program Plan & Budget

MicroProfile provides 100 percent transparency on its money expenditures.

The MicroProfile yearly Program Plan is drafted and completed in the open with the MicroProfile community. Once it is approved by The Steering Committee, a MicroProfile budget is prepared by Eclipse Management Organization (EMO). The Steering Committee is required to review and vote on the budget proposed by the EMO.

Five (5) yearly fees are paid to the Eclipse Foundation. Those fees are constant costs for MicroProfile. The fees take + ~80% of the MicroProfile budget:

  1. Ops- Working Group Operations and Governance fee
  2. General & Administration – G&A fee (12%)
  3. Trademark Surveillance fee
  4. Events Support fee
  5. Shared Marketing Services fee

Under Marketing Expenses allocation expenses, it’s acceptable to overspend in one line item and underspend in another without formally adjusting the approved budget. The EMO will adjust the expenditures based on the costs incurred.
