Historically at OSF nearly all grants over $50,000 were approved by the President, with program directors generally only able to approve grants of $25,000 or under without an additional approval from senior management. Each new grant needed to be approved separately. New grant approval procedures were rolled out in 2012 when Chris Stone became President, with the goal of streamlining grant making and diversifying decision-making by: (1) creating a new process whereby grantee organizations themselves are subjected to an eligibility approval process after which they are able to receive grants with approval only by program director, and (2) decentralizing approval authority beyond the President.
