Review of CWG questions

Budget accountability

CCWG proposal only considering up/down vote on annual budget. Not the level of detail suggested by CWG.
Not foreseen breaking down budget to the level they seem to be requesting. CCWG supportive of the CWG request for improved transparency on the IANA budget. And CCWG will likely include a budget transparency in recommendations.

Accountability (re)delegation

Independent appeals panels

The mechanism we envisage should cover these requests.

Control over ICANN Board Decisions

The group will respond to the CWG, draft shared with the list.

Work on the problem statement has been completed and can be shared with the expert advisors.

Mind-map provides the building blocks for work on accountability mechanisms, and working parties for avenues of work.

Subteams allocated to further develop contingencies and further develop stress tests.

Work items.

Liaise with CWG
Work on contingencies, definition of questions
Scoping document, finalize and circulate to the list, and to advisors
Establishing the two avenue working parties (Jordan Carter to led the community empowerment group)
Through review of timelines so we are able to meet commitments by ICANN #53 Including a second F2F between Singapore and Buenos Aires
Singapore preparation.
Legal advice, urgency high, and need to develop specific questions

Chat Transcript

  Leon Sanchez (Co-Chair-ALAC): (1/20/2015 08:40) welcome back

  Matthew Shears: (08:44) is this issue budget accountabliity or transparency?  seems to me that the point we rasied vis-avis the budget is different than what is being asked for by the CWG

  Matthew Shears: (08:45) + 1 Steve

  Cheryl Langdon-Orr (ALAC-AP Region): (08:48) totally support what @chris is saying re part 2. in this document art (re)deligations

  Cheryl Langdon-Orr (ALAC-AP Region): (08:52) +111 to @Steve on way forward to respond

  Jordan Carter (.nz, ccTLD Member): (08:56) So let's move on

  Jordan Carter (.nz, ccTLD Member): (08:56) :D

  Robin Gross [GNSO-NCSG]: (09:06) I've asked staff to make a mtg room available to those of us in this group who want to meet in Singapore (on Sunday afternoon) to work on these issues .

  Matthew Shears: (09:06) thanks Robin

  Robin Gross [GNSO-NCSG]: (09:08) Not sure if we'll get the room yet - they need to check with mtg planning staff to see if we've got any mtg space open on Sunday

  Samantha Eisner: (09:09) @Kavouss, control in English can also mean "determine the behaviour or supervise the running of.", not just monitor.  Agree that language is important here.

  Robin Gross [GNSO-NCSG]: (09:09) Agree with Samantha that the meaning of control in English is much broader than just monitor.

  Jordan Carter (.nz, ccTLD Member): (09:13) Gr8 idea @Robin

  Jordan Carter (.nz, ccTLD Member): (09:15) i'll personally be in SG from the Friday night the 6th

  Greg Shatan: (09:15) The CWG essentially has a "make/buy" decision with regard to the accountability mechanisms to be created by the CCWG.  If the CCWG creates mechanism we can use in our proposed processes, we'll "buy" it.  If the CCWG doesn't do so, we'll need to "make" it ourselves.

  Mathieu Weill, ccNSO, co-chair: (09:16) @Greg : that is our understanding, thanks !

  Greg Shatan: (09:20) @Mathieu: Also, in my opinion, we would prefer to "buy" (to avoid inconsistent, duplicative and multiplying processes).

  Matthew Shears: (09:21) + 1 Steve

  Jordan Carter (.nz, ccTLD Member): (09:21) +1 Steve

  Keith Drazek: (09:22) Agreed Steve. We don't want to create new structures if they're not needed, but we need to establish what is possible with existing structures and what might require something new. Sooner rather than later.

  Matthew Shears: (09:22) Absolutely!

  Jordan Carter (.nz, ccTLD Member): (09:23) +++1

  Matthew Shears: (09:25) Happy to support Jordan
