Frequently asked questions

Q: When will the next funding cycle begin?
A: In the spring of 2023.
 
Q: What is the indirect costs or F&A policy? Can these costs be included in our budget?
A: Unfortunately, no. Please read the full OGIC policy  for more information.
 
Q: I heard that there is more than one area of funding in the program this biennium. What are they?
A: There are two funding areas: foundational data elements (includes secondary foundational) and traditional Framework projects. Funding will be approximately split 70/30 across the two areas.
 
Q: My project idea isn't for a foundational or secondary foundational data element. Can I still submit a proposal?
A: Yes. Data development projects for other Framework data elements are welcomed and will be evaluated as part of the traditional Framework projects area.
 
Q: Does there need to be a standard in place or developed over the project duration for my data development project to be funded?
A: Yes, but the program doesn't fund standards development. Standards development would need to be leveraged from other funds.
 
Q: Would a project that develops a data distribution tool be eligible for funding?
A: Yes, if the project has a clear connection to Framework, it is eligible for funding. This type of project would fall into the traditional Framework projects area.
 
Q: If I have additional questions, what do I do?
A: Send an email to Framework.Funding@oregon.gov
