This project will optimize the OWASP Foundation JIRA funding reimbursement and approval processes with the result of improving processes for all tasks submitted into JIRA. The processes will be retooled to achieve a documented Service Level Agreement (SLA), ensure responsible parties have better visibility to expected actions, reduce further requests for information, reduce unnecessary email traffic, and ensure those who submit tickets have more accurate information on status.
