Building bridges

Based on the comments to my previous post, albeit a small sample size, there does seem to be support for requiring recipients of, or applicants for, bridge funding to demonstrate their worthiness. While I have the attention of a larger than normal audience (thanks to DrugMonkey), let me ask how bridge funding is handled in your department. Do you have set criteria/expectations, or is it handed out seemingly arbitrarily? If there are criteria, what are they?

not arbitrary, exactly. more like autocratic.

Nobody here has bridge funding ... actually nobody here has funding. I'll be the test case if I can't get any funding before my startup monies run out next year. Fun times ahead.
