ICANN announced Wednesday that its affiliate, Public Technical Identifiers (PTI), is inviting the community to participate in a webinar with Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) staff and members of the PTI Board to discuss PTI’s Fiscal Year 2022 (FY22) Operating Plan and Budget (PTI OP&B) for delivering the IANA functions.
The PTI OP&B includes two components – both an IANA budget and a PTI budget. The IANA budget includes the direct costs for ICANN’s IANA department, all costs for PTI, direct costs for shared resources between ICANN and PTI, and support functions provided by ICANN to PTI. The PTI budget includes PTI’s performance of the IANA functions.
Please join one of the two scheduled informational webinars to learn more. ICANN welcomes the community’s questions and comments.

ICANN’s mission is to help ensure a stable, secure, and unified global Internet. To reach another person on the Internet, you need to type an address – a name or a number – into your computer or other device. That address must be unique so computers know where to find each other. ICANN helps coordinate and support these unique identifiers across the world. ICANN was formed in 1998 as a not-for-profit public-benefit corporation with a community of participants from all over the world.
Public Technical Identifiers (PTI) is an affiliate of ICANN responsible for performing the IANA functions, which include management of the DNS root zone, the global IP address space and other protocol parameters that support Internet operation. PTI was formed in 2016 following a transition of stewardship to the multistakeholder community that relies upon the IANA functions. PTI performs the IANA functions under contract with ICANN.
