  1. Per the discussion at the end to the call please review: Transparency and Accountability in the ICANN Structure

    Basically the issue concerns reporting and governance of the Contractual Compliance department. According to Portfolio Management compliance reports to Akram Atallah who is also the President of the Global Domains Division. It appears that compliance was a function of the COO and it "moved" with Atallah when he became GDD president. This would appear to be a conflict of interest for the commercial side to have control over contractual compliance. This arrangement is also contrary to what the community has been told about compliance reporting to the CEO.
