ATRT2 meeting with the SSAC Mon, 15 July 2013 07:30 - 08:30Dev Anand Teelucksingh

SSAC members commented on the ATRT2 questions

Lot of discussion on Q1 (whether GNSO PDP is effective for developing gTLD policy)

SSAC chair mentioned that an issue is that it is silo based rather than topic based, and that cross constituency input/deliberations on issues don't happen or happens too late whereever the process is being developed. Examples of possible issues : new gTLDs, IDN ccTLD Fast Track

Steve Crocker mentioned a report just published on the internal SSAC list on the issue of conflict of names used on internal networks being
deployed in the root was cited as an example.

This issue was mentioned by SSAC that such research was needed at the time of the initial root scaling survey for new gTLDs but was not done until now. Why did this take so long from a ATRT perspective?

Alan noted that cross community deliberations is mentioned in the AoC but not done by ICANN AC/SOs

Lyman C - when community centred processes such as GNSO PDP, in spite of cross-community and talking to to other ACs and SOs, there is a tendency by the AC/SO to complete the work internally. perhaps there needs to be mechanisms in the AC/SO PDP processes that requires input by other AC/SO groups before any AC/SO can publish reports.

SSAC is working on disclosure interests policy so that members' interests are disclosed in an open way and for others to see who was involved and affiations in SSAC reports

SSAC chair mentioned that the SSAC has not ever been blocked/held back by ICANN legal to publish their reports. Reports may not be published as scheduled if there is not encough consensus.

Discussion on SSAC Accountability and Transparency -

  •  SSAC default is issues/reports/discussions are closed to the SSAC and not public - Should this be open?
  • Many SSAC persons said this should not change - having it open/public would inhibit SSAC members from posting/contributing to SSAC discussions in a frank manner

We are doing extensive deep dives and interviews with ICANN Board candidates. Very interesting candidates. Excellent candidates for the new board

We are working all day and tomorrow on interviews and Friday and Saturday is the selection process

Themes:  1. Joint Statement in TMCH in Beijing. 2. Request to return friday meetings. 1.The concern is the process. The real problem is that process that was follow by the CEO to gather a few people in a room without proper stakeholder participation, Not in complete agreement with the people that did participate in that process. The board approve the TMCH+50. You get to block 50 other names. The board ignore the request. The independent review process costs millions of dollars. Follow thorug the Community engagemente process. File an independent review process. Ask Icann to funding in the same way they are funding ALAC independent process. The CEO is restructuring the whole organization. Take a stand that this is a very crucial component. The creation of a division of implementation of a gold that is free of the stakeholder process, is problematic. We are going to isolate part of the process from the mulstistakholder model. It is the whole mulstistakeholder process that is being threaten by creating isolating division. The presidential committee that set the roadmap is another problem./ would like to see more information about how this is going to work. Understood is an operational part of ICANN. Contractual work. Ask the Board and FAdi and tema to produce a document that clearly define the work. The channel and bridges that connect. / have alarm bells ringing. / The MS is a complete work of ICANN, not a segment a ICANN. We are Icann. Alac can give advice on anything./ Be vigilant./ Say in the public forum. Joint statement, proper engagement process procedure. / Whish to first see evidence before raising a flag. / Produce a joint statement. /Alac have to take it back to other members. Statement that might have come from the alac in the future, asking for documents.
