Just submitted a proposal to Oregon InC on behalf of Smart Grid Oregon to fund an accelerator program. That was quite a project, envisioning the program, building consensus to support it, drafting the proposal with input from SGO board members and 3rd party reviewers, soliciting endorsements from key stakeholders. These types of projects are always a push and more work than you’d hope. With so many stakeholders involved, we did 14 rounds of edits on the proposal draft! And, of course, the most important thing of all – submitted the proposal on time.
Now the waiting begins, the proposal review and budget approval process will take a year. On to the next project in meantime!
