The OSS Foundation is focused on facilitating research and solution development pertaining to multidisciplinary work in key areas of human endeavor that pertain to our sustainable capacity, and the living systems of Earth.

Mission Statement

To meaningfully communicate relevant issues in science to the public and policy makers. To analyze and determine the simplest solution possible for a given problem, or set of problems. To deliver efficient analysis and effective methods, tools, and systems, to accomplish the goals of a given objective.


We live in a world of complexity and chaos, where inter-dynamic systems have influences that are difficult to see. The law of unintended consequences drives us to understand these dynamics in order to avert potential problems. The 'big picture' is really many smaller pictures. Identifying and understanding stressors and potential stressors is critical to solution strategy. Understanding where synergies can be enhanced is critical to solution development.

Simplification is the new focus.

As complexities are discovered it becomes increasingly important to crystallize and simplify what things mean to our society and economy. If "for want of a nail the war was lost", we need to know 'where' the nail is and 'make sure' it is in place, or ready to be replaced when needed. Simplification is the new focus. As understanding becomes increasingly important to society's many challenges, we need to create relevant synergies to achieve mutual goals.

The OSS Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) corporation in the State of California.
