Contributor membership was designed to enable organizations (particularly small government agencies, academics, and non-profit associations) to participate fully in Committee work. Vendors are free to choose this category of membership with the understanding that no marketing or visibility benefits are included.
Sponsor membership provides the full range of benefits that vendors (of all sizes), large user organizations, and government agencies need. The Sponsor category combines unlimited Committee participation with essential marketing and visibility benefits. Sponsors are featured and quoted in OASIS press releases, they participate in interoperability demos, workshops, webinars, and presentations at conferences, their logos and links appear throughout the OASIS web site–they support the adoption activities that grow the market for standards-compliant products.

Foundational Sponsors receive maximum participation, visibility, and promotional benefits including Premium sponsorship of special events and activities.

Open Project Sponsorship
Everyone is welcome to make technical contributions to Open Projects–there are no dues or fees required. Instead, each Open Project is funded by annual sponsorship dues from the organizations committed to its success.
|Organization size/type||Open Project Sponsor|
|10-99 employees||$ 5,000|
|Fewer than 10 employees||$ 2,000|
|Nonprofit, university, local or non-OECD government||$ 1,000|
Base Open Project sponsorship dues cover the core technical, legal, promotional, and administrative services provided by OASIS. Dues are determined by each organization’s total employee headcount.
Each Open Project’s Governing Board has the option to set higher Sponsor dues and/or additional fees to fund supplemental activities such as hiring consultants, hosting large events, conducting code audits, funding developer travel, etc.
Organizations pay dues for each Open Project they choose to sponsor. Discounts may be available for organizations that sponsor multiple Open Projects or hold membership in OASIS Technical Committees. Contact OASIS for details.
