Staff partnering with a Rep to run an event funded by their team
The Mozilla Reps program offers a unique platform to organize events, book travel/hotels, process payments and reimburse volunteers. These types of "staff-sponsored" events are considered "Special events" in Reps jargon.
NB: If you are a staff member wishing to work with a Rep to run an event but don't have allocated budget for events, you can always ask the Rep you're working with to request a budget using the standard Reps budget request process. To learn more, read more here.
How it works
The special events use the same exact process as the other events. The only difference is that the budget used to fund them comes from a functional team within Mozilla.
- Rep creates event in the portal and submits budget request indicating that it's special on the whiteboard and putting the staff sponsor in CC
- A Staff member reviews the budget, confirms that their team has the funds and approves/doesn't approve the budget in the bug.
- Reps program manager (Rosana) signs budget off
- Reps program coordinator (Konstantina) takes care of reimbursing the contributors and keeping them accountable.
