Independent Examiner’s Final Recommendation
ALAC should adopt a set of metrics that are consistent for the entire At-Large Community to measure the implementation and impact of the EMM and track the continuous improvement in the performance of the At-Large Community.
Absence of consistent performance metrics.
Does ALAC Support Recommendation?
Support with qualification
As the ALAC is explicitly rejecting the EMM model, there is no plan to monitor its performance. However, the ALAC does support the establishment of metrics to track performance and improvement of the At-Large Community.
If Not, Please Provide Reasoning.
If ALAC Does Not Support Recommendation, Does It Suggest an Alternative Recommendation?
If so, please provide a suggested alternative Recommendation.
The ALAC already define a set of metrics for performance for ALAC Members. The ALAC also has an activity to develop metrics for other volunteers and community members. This activity was largely put on hold during the IANA Stewardship and CCWG-Accountability efforts. There is also an ongoing activity to establish criteria for ALS performance. Establishing metrics for RALO leadership is potentially more problematic as it is not clear that the ALAC has the authority to act in this area.
At-Large has a Metrics WG (one of the groups recommended to be abolished) that has been tasked precisely with that responsibility.
Although consistency is important, there are also significant differences between the regions and any discussion of metrics needs to factor that in.
|The Metrics WG is currently on hold pending the completion of the ALS and RALO Criteria and Expectations Task Force.
Who Will Implement?
