Re: [council] draft of this morning's slides
Chuck and Avri
Our intention is to have the Board Report to the Board in October not
September but that we means we must complete in August to allow time
for final drafting and the public comment period.
We need to finish by about 10 August so a stable Committee Final
Report can be posted for public comment -- that document will remain
static once it's posted.
We will then incorporate public comments in the Board Report in
addition to input from other ACs and SOs -- the Board Report requires
some different things than the Final Committee Report.
I've re-copied the dates here -- you'll see that there are other
events that need to take place which mean that having the Report to
the Board in October means we must be finished in mid-August.
...If we are to have a Board Report ready for consideration at the LA
meeting then we, working backwards, need to:
1. Have the Board Report ready and in the General Counsel's hands 11
days prior to the 2 Nov Board meeting -- 22 October
2. Internal sign off and final check 14 days prior to preparation of
Board Report -- 8 October
3. 20 day public comment period on GNSO Council Final Report --
allowing time for inclusion of results in the Final Report say 30
days -- 8 September public comment period needs to start. Public
comments will be included in the Board Report.
4. Final Report will need to be with Council 7 days prior to the
meeting to vote on it -- release 1 September (Part A, Part B, draft
RFP, draft base contract and draft implementation plan) and Committee
meeting 7 September
5. That means we need to complete the final negotiations of the
Committee by, at the latest, 10 August to I can assemble all the
information that is required.
The first 4 dates are fixed in either the bylaws or the board
I suggest that we schedule, after Thursday this week, 2 more
Committee conference calls to wrap up last details. I suggest
Thursday 5 and 12 July at 2pm Brussels time. I will also hold other
dates -- 19 July and 27 July. I will need a period of time to
complete the writing and release the Council Report without ongoing

as i understand the timing puzzle, there is:
- public comment
- staff processing
before it actually gets to the board.
so if we finish in September, they get it in October.
but Liz can correct me.
perhaps i should be more specific about what happens in the interval.

Isn't our intent to send the Dec05 PDP report to the Board in
at which time it will be distributed to the GAC and posted for public
comment. It my opinion that is critical and think we should say
September instead of October with the anticipation of Board action at
the annual meeting. (Slide 6) And I think we are trying to finsih by
August with Council action in September. It is very important
set good expectations.
The rest looks fine to me.
