The Structural Improvements Committee (SIC), now known as the Organizational Effectiveness Committee (OEC) requested that a GNSO Review Working Party be assembled to act as a liaison between the GNSO, the independent examiner and the SICOEC. The Working Party will provide input on review criteria and the 360 Assessment, coordinate interviews and objectively supply clarification and responses to the draft findings and recommendations. Once the final report is issued and the Board takes action on it, the The Final Report was issued in September 2015 and it is anticipated that the Board will take action on it in June 2016.  The GNSO Review Working Party is expected to coordinate with the GNSO community to prepare an Implementation Plan and champion implementation of improvement activities. 


The GNSO Review Working Party has had ongoing opportunities for substantive input into the GNSO Review process and methodology.  The GNSO Community has had extensive and ongoing opportunities to take part in the 360 Assessment and to offer direct feedback to Westlake in a variety of ways, including via 40 one-on-one interviews (considerably more than originally anticipated in the scope of work), interaction at ICANN meetings and through other communication channels.

Additionally, community will continue to have The community had multiple touch-points with Westlake and opportunities to share their views via the formal Public Comment process on the Draft Report (1 June – 20 July 2015).
