With the experience of two previous Accountability and Transparency reviews, ICANN understands the importance of timely and effective communications. In fact, one of the ATRT2 recommendations specifically addresses implementation reporting. Updates on the progress of implementing the recommendations will be posted and reported each trimester through multiple communication channels and at ICANN meetings, beginning with ICANN51 in Los Angeles. A public session ATRT2 Implementation Update will took take place on Wednesday, 15 October 2014 at 14:00 – 15:15at ICANN51.
Additionally, webinars on implementation progress will be offered periodically to provide ICANN stakeholders an opportunity to ask questions and offer feedback.
At this time, projects implementing all 12 ATRT2 recommendations have been initiated with several teams executing their initial implementation steps. With 51 distinct recommendation components to develop, the timeframe for implementation will vary depending on the complexity of the recommendation and its key dependencies. For example, synchronization and alignment will likely take place in conjunction with the work underway to Enhance ICANN Accountability Process. Such dependencies and connections will be addressed in the Implementation Summaries provided for each recommendation.
Each project will be tracked in ICANN’s Portfolio Management System – stakeholders, Board and staff can see the progress on ICANN’s web site.
