Interim GNSO Standing Committee on Budget & Operations Established
To assist with the development of GNSO Council comments related to ICANN's budgetary and financial matters, the Council adopted the GNSO Standing Committee on Budget & Operations (SCBO) Charter on an interim basis. To test the process and criteria outlined in the charter, the Council tasked the SCBO to carry out the review and comment formulation for the ICANN FY19 Draft Budget planning cycle. Following the completion of this task, SCBO will report back to the GNSO Council with its assessment of whether its charter provides sufficient guidance and flexibility to carry out its work. Subsequently, GNSO Council is expected to establish the committee on a permanent basis.
