This Workspace has been created to assist the ALAC/At-Large community in developing FY21 Additional Budget Request (ABR) proposals. The ALAC Finance and Budget Sub-committee (FBSC) will review all proposals submitted and will agree on which to submit to ICANN on behalf of the ALAC.

FY21 ALAC/ALT Plus Criteria for Additional Budget Requests: (TBC)

  • In the post-ATLAS III environment, proposals should include activities that will make the entire At-Large community more effective in policy advice development. 
  • 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 CROP program or as a part of a larger ALAC request for RALO Discretionary Funding. 
  • RALO requests should be strategic and in line with their RALO's strategic outreach plans and must be endorsed by their RALO prior to being submitted for consideration by the FBSC.
  • Priority will also only be given to those who have provided draft reports as requested as part of the FY20 ABR approval language. Final reports must be submitted by the end of FY21. For Details see: At-Large FY20 Additional Budget Request Implementation Workspace .
  • 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.
