FY16 AC/SO Special Requests

At-Large Approved FY16 Special Request Implementation Workspace - NEW

Results of the FY16 AC/SO Special Requests Announced - See full list here.

A call of the FBSC will be held the week of 4 May 2015 to review the ALAC requests.

All of the below requests were approved by the FBSC and submitted to the ICANN Controller for consideration on 28 February 2015

FY16 ALAC Criteria for Special Requests:

  • Outreach should not be a major focus. Activities to improve engagement with existing members is encouraged.
  • If any request is made on outreach, it should go through the CROPP program and not this special request process.
  • Proposals should include ways in which will make the ALAC and/or the At-Large community more effective and develop the At-Large community.
  • RALO requests must go through a bottom up process within their RALO prior to being submitted for consideration by the FBSC.
  • They must be explicitly supported by the RALO representative on the FBSC.
  • Staff is currently expecting that basic resources for community communications/printing will be supported through the core ICANN budget, but that community proposals for printing , etc. will be accepted as a back-up in case expectations change.  Specific proposals for communications resources beyond simple printing and editing functions should be prepared and submitted.
