Empowering grants, safeguarding dreams: Uniting the GSS and Grantees through a proposal that secures trust, support, and a brighter future.
The purpose of this proposal is to establish a set of rules and guidelines for the Grant Support Squad (GSS) within the Decentraland DAO. The GSS’s primary responsibility is to support grant recipients and ensure accountability & support for their work. However, there have been concerns about the GSS’s approach to granting dilemmas and potential manipulation in a subjective manner in the process of proposing revocations. This proposal aims to address these concerns and create a fair and transparent framework for the GSS’s operations.
Unleashing the power of grants while fostering trust and support, this proposal establishes a robust set of rules. Designed to protect both the Grant Support Squad (GSS) and future grantees, it ensures that the GSS acts solely as a supportive entity and not a source of dilemmas. By implementing these rules, the proposal aims to eliminate concerns of demolition and foster a harmonious relationship, safeguarding the dreams and aspirations of all involved parties.
Grant Dilemmas and Revocation Process:
a. The GSS shall only raise dilemmas and propose revocations after a grant proposal has been passed.
b. During the revocation process, the grantee shall have the opportunity to present their case and defend themselves, similar to a court proceeding.
c. The GSS shall clearly communicate to the grantee that the suggestion to revoke their grant is only a suggestion, and they will build a formal proposal for revocation if deemed necessary.
Documentation Required for Grant Revocation:
a. Reason: The GSS must provide a clear and detailed explanation of the reasons for considering a grant revocation. This explanation should be objective, specific, and focused on the grantee’s failure to meet the agreed-upon objectives or fulfill the grant requirements.
b. Objective Evidence: The GSS must provide verifiable evidence that supports their claims of the grantee’s failure to meet the required standards. This evidence should be transparent and accessible to all DAO members.
c. Solution for Grant Continuation: In addition to raising concerns and proposing revocation, the GSS should also suggest alternative solutions for the grantee to continue their work, such as recommending modifications to the project plan or offering additional support.
Training and Accountability:
a. The GSS members should undergo comprehensive training to understand their roles, responsibilities, and the ethical considerations involved in their work.
b. The GSS shall be accountable for their actions and decisions. They should be transparent about their activities, providing regular updates and reports to the DAO community regarding their assessments, dilemmas, and revocations.
By implementing these guidelines and accountability measures, the Decentraland DAO can ensure a fair and transparent process for grant support and accountability. This proposal aims to establish clear rules for the GSS, promoting effective collaboration between grant recipients and the GSS while protecting the integrity and objectivity of the grant evaluation process.
Process for Executing the Proposal:
The Grant Support Squad (GSS) follows a transparent process for grant revocations within the Decentraland DAO. They create a proposal on the governance page, providing reasons, evidence, and a solution. The proposal link is posted under the grantee’s passed proposal for visibility. If it passes the GSS is allowed to pass it to The Revocation Committee that reviews the proposal. further steps are taken; if not, the GSS can retry after a 1 month period. This process ensures clear communication and community involvement in the decision-making process.
(GSS) Proposal Requirements:
a. The GSS provides first a reason in their proposal and explain more about their reason.
b. The GSS provides objective evidince to the case and the DAO community will be the jury to judge in the proposal.
c. The GSS initiates communication with the grantee to discuss the dilemma and explore potential solutions.
d. The GSS identifies a dilemma or issue with a grant recipient, such as possible solutions they can come up with or fulfill grant requirements.
e. The Grantee gets a chance to elaborate in the comments explaining on what went wrong or allowed to defend them selves in Revoke proposal! If the Grantee (Defendant) in this case fails to respond at all in this proposal, it passes directly to the revocation comittee.
Communication with Grant Recipient:
a. The GSS engages in open and transparent communication with the grantee, presenting their concerns and discussing possible resolutions.
b. The grantee has the opportunity to provide their perspective, address the concerns raised, and propose alternative solutions.
a. The proposal outlines the reason for considering revocation, presents objective evidence supporting the claim, and suggests a solution for the grantee to continue their work if applicable.
Revocation Committee Review:
a. The proposal for revocation is submitted to the DAO as an pre- proposal, which consists of designated members within the Decentraland DAO.
b. When the proposal passes and the GSS & Grantee didn’t come to a conclusion together, The Revocation Committee reviews the proposal, assesses the evidence presented, and considers the potential impact on the grantee and the DAO community.
c. If the proposal passes the review by the Revocation Committee, further steps will be taken as outlined in the proposal. If the proposal does not pass, it is not considered for revocation at this time.
a. If the proposal for revocation does not pass, the GSS is allowed to retry submitting a new proposal for revocation after a defined period, such as one month.
b. During this retry period, the GSS can continue engaging with the grantee to seek alternative resolutions or gather additional evidence if necessary.
Ongoing Monitoring and Support:
a. Regardless of the revocation decision, the GSS continues to monitor the progress of the grantee’s work, providing support and guidance as needed.
b. The GSS maintains regular communication with the grantee and the DAO community, providing updates on the situation and addressing any concerns or questions that may arise.
