Registry Stakeholder Group
Public comment is requested concerning the recently received from the proposal for Establishment of a Continued Operations Fund. This proposal comes from the Registries Stakeholder Group (RySG) and is accompanied by an addendum (Proposed Continuity Operations Instrument) produced by the Afilias and PIR, supported by some other registries, registry applicants and other interested parties.
The current model proposed by ICANN is outlined in the Applicant Guidebook, in particular the module 2, evaluation criteria attachment and the spec 8 of the Registry Agreement. Respondents to the public comment that wish to learn more about this topic are also encouraged to read the gTLD Registry Transition Process Memorandum (http://www.icann.org/en/topics/new-gtlds/registry-transition-processes-clean-30may11-en.pdf
Those interested in the topic, in addition to submitting public comments, should try to attend the ICANN Dakar "Continuing Operations Instrument (COI) - Discussion on RySG proposal" session. In this session, experts from the Registry Constituency and ICANN community will discuss the proposal as well as some of the questions outlined. The session will have remote participation for those unable to attend. Click here for session and remote participation details.
