Thanks for this Marika.

I think the minimum timetable presumes there will always be a council meeting at exactly the time that we need one. Since I can recall only one "special" Council meeting in my almost 6 years (on the RC/IOC), I suspect this is unrealistic. Assuming a 4-week Council meeting cycle, that adds about 6 weeks to the total.

It also presumes no time for SGs to consult which is perhaps not unreasonable for a no-brainer PDP.

Dear All,

Following requests during the last Council meeting, please find attached a timeline in which I've tried to outline the absolute minimum as well as the expected average timeline for a GNSO PDP to go from a request for an Issue Report to Board adoption. Please note that there are several assumptions included in the timetable in relation to the absolute minimum. Amongst others, in addition to the availability of staff and community resources, it assumes that the PDP concerns a narrowly defined issue with a high level of community consensus around the recommendations at an early stage of the process. As a reference, you also find attached an updated version of the GNSO PDP Timelines which tracks the duration of recent and ongoing PDPs.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

With best regards,


Sr. Policy Director
