This is probably the key point to ensure funds actually get to the active
members. It will require 100% transparency of grants documents and SCF
management issues.

What is proposed in the new "by funds structure" is to keep a Project
Leader per Project as the Treasurer of that Project's  fund. For general
purpose expenses SL already have the SLOBs who act as Treasurers of the
General Funds fund.

Project Leaders-Treasurers should be encouraged to present time-cycle
required Budgets to the SL Funding/Grants Committee.

Each Project Leader may approve or not an specific grant or grant
percentage to get into his/her Project Fund for N periods of time. By
approving the incoming of funds into the project, the Project Leader shall
agree to make his/her best effort to deliver the grant's desired results on
each time cycle as well as of course to share the results openly.

That said and according to current SLOBs requirements, SLOBs approval will
get a long tale as according to current motions system it requires that (A)
each disbursement motion gets to be seconded by one SLOB + (B) the motion
gets 4 affirmative votes.
