The Osmosis Grants Program (“OGP”) is a subDAO whose mandate is to allocate funding towards community members and contributors. The OGP consists of a Grants Lead and a multi-sig committee made up of individual community members, validators, investors, and founders.
Participants within the OGP are expected to disclose all conflicts of interests they have.
— Specifically, conflicts should be transparently disclosed to other members of the OGP and disclosed in funding batch announcements.
— If a multi-sig signer has a conflict, they should notify the OGP and abstain from participating in the grant approval process. If signers are conflicted, the majority vote will determine the outcome of the grant (e.g. if only 5 of 7 signers participate due to a conflict, 3 signers constitute the majority).
— If the OGP Grants Lead has a conflict, they should notify the multi-sig signers, reassign the funding decision to a different OGP member, and abstain from participating in the approval process for the applicable grant.
— All funding recommendations should be handled by a non-conflicted member of the OGP.
The OGP has historically conducted itself in this manner. This policy lays it out formally for all current and future OGP contributors.
