[council] Updated Final PDP-WT Report for Council Consideration and Motion
All, Please find attached the final PDP-WT documents (clean version, redline and comparison overview). They can also be found on the wiki (https://community.icann.org/display/gnsoppsc/2.+PDP-WT+Documents+%28Drafts+-+Published%29) in addition to the public comment review tool and the attendance sheet. Also, please find below a proposed motion to approve the recommendations to the PDP-WT Updated Final Report. I am presenting to this motion to the Council now with the expectation that someone (which may be me on behalf of the registries) will ask that it be deferred until Dakar. That said, this process has gone on long enough that I believe we should finish everything up by no later than Dakar to move on to other projects. Thanks! Motion Motion to Adopt the Policy Development Process Work Team Updated Final Report WHEREAS, in October 2008, the GNSO Council established a framework (see GNSO Council Improvement Implementation Plan; (http://www.icann.org/en/topics/gnso-improvements/gnso-improvements-implementation-plan-16oct08.pdf) for implementing the various GNSO Improvements identified and approved by the ICANN Board of Directors on 26 June 2008 (http://www.icann.org/en/minutes/resolutions-26jun08.htm#_Toc76113182) (http://www.icann.org/en/minutes/resolutions-26jun08.htm); WHEREAS, that framework included the formation, in January 2009, of two Steering Committees, the Operations Steering Committee (OSC) and the Policy Process Steering Committee (PPSC), to charter and coordinate the efforts of five community work teams in developing specific recommendations to implement the improvements; WHEREAS, the PPSC established two work teams, including the Policy Development Process Work Team (PDP-WT), which was chartered to develop a new policy development process that incorporates a working group approach and makes it more effective and responsive to ICANN's policy development needs; WHEREAS, the GNSO Council decided to terminate the PPSC on 28 April 2011 and instructed the PDP-WT to deliver its Final Report directly to the GNSO Council; WHEREAS, the PDP-WT submitted its Final Report (http://gnso.icann.org/issues/pdp-wt-final-report-final-31may11-en.pdf) on 1 June 2011 to the GNSO Council; WHEREAS the GNSO Council opened a 30-day public comment period on the Final Report (see http://www.icann.org/en/announcements/announcement-2-09jun11-en.htm); WHEREAS the GNSO Council referred those comments back to the PDP-WT for consideration (see http://gnso.icann.org/resolutions/#201107); WHEREAS the PDP-WT has reviewed those comments and updated the report as deemed appropriate (see [include link to public comment review tool]; WHEREAS the PDP-WT submitted its Updated Final Report (see [include link] to the GNSO Council on 27 September 2011. NOW THEREFORE, BE IT: RESOLVED, the GNSO Council recommends that the ICANN Board of Directors adopt the revised GNSO Policy Development Process as reflected in the proposed Annex A and PDP Manual as outlined in the PDP Updated Final Report (see [include link]). RESOLVED, the GNSO Council recommends that the procedures of the new Annex A shall be applicable to all requests for Issue Reports and PDPs initiated following adoption by the ICANN Board. For all ongoing PDPs initiated prior to the adoption by the Board, the Council shall determine the feasibility of transitioning to the procedures set forth in this Annex A for all remaining steps within the PDP. If the Council determines that any ongoing PDP cannot be feasibly transitioned to these updated procedures, the PDP shall be concluded according to the procedures set forth in Annex A in force on before the adoption of the new Annex A by the Board.
