Focusing on ICANN‘s commitment to the multistakeholder model, ICANN‘s Draft FY18 Operating Plan & Budget and an associated update to the Five-Year Operating Plan are provided for community discussion and public comment. ICANN seeks structured feedback on the plan described in these two linked documents. These documents incorporate refinements on previous years based on regular interaction with the ICANN Community and reflect FY17’s planned accomplishments towards the Five-Year Strategic Plan, which was adopted by the Board in October 2014.
These two draft documents have been prepared and published for public review and comment.
They describe ICANN‘s plans for FY18, including the plans to be carried out by PTI. Consultations were conducted on PTI’s draft FY18 plans during October, November, and December 2016. A Report of Public Comments was published in January 2017 and the updated Operating Plan and Budget was adopted by the PTI Board and the ICANN Board. The sections of the plans relating to PTI are therefore already finalized and are included in these documents to provide a complete picture.
They are supported by documents providing additional detail and accompanied by a high-level overview. The overview will be presented during ICANN58 in March 2017.
Questions seeking clarification of any details in the Draft PTI FY18 Operating Plan and Budget should be submitted to email@example.com by 19 March 2017. Responses will be provided by 31 March 2017, four weeks before this public comment period ends.
After we have read the comments submitted, we will hold calls with the community to discuss aspects of the comments that need addition explanation. This step of the process is intended to enhance understanding of the comments and to improve the quality of the response. All calls will be public, focused on the organization that submitted comments, and attended by at least one ICANN Board member. Additional ICANN Board members may attend based on availability.
The staff and ICANN Board members attending will primarily ask clarifying questions and listen. Responses to public comments will not be provided during these calls, unless the comments are factual with a very specific and simple answer.
The schedule for these calls, along with dial-in information, will be published on the ICANN Community Wiki Finance Workspace.
After holding calls with the community, a report on the comments received will be prepared. After incorporating changes based on suggestions and comments, the ICANN Board will be invited to adopt the Plan in June 2017.
Section I: Description, Explanation, and Purpose
ICANN seeks structured feedback on the plan described in these two linked documents. They reflect the accomplishments planned for the current fiscal year, FY17, and refinements based on regular interaction with the ICANN Community.
Section II: Background
ICANN‘s planning process consists of a continuous cycle. Since the introduction of PTI in FY17, the four components are:
- ICANN Strategic Plan
- ICANN Five-Year Operating Plan Update
- ICANN Fiscal-Year Operating Plan & Budget
- PTI Fiscal-Year Operating Plan & Budget
ICANN‘s Strategic Plan [PDF, 1.65 MB] was developed with community input and is updated every five years. The Strategic Plan shapes our priorities, informs our budget and drives our activities. ICANN‘s Strategic Plan for FY16-FY20 was adopted by the Board and published on 14 October 2014.
ICANN‘s Five-Year Operating Plan was developed with community input and is updated each year. This is its second update. It contains to an approach to a five-year financial management strategy, and at the strategic goal level:
- Corresponding Key Performance Indicators
- Five-Year Phasing
- A list of Portfolios
ICANN‘s Fiscal-Year Operating Plan and Budget is developed with input from the community to implement the Five-Year Operating Plan.
The cycle completes with Achievement & Progress Reporting.
Following the adoption of the FY16-FY20 Strategic Plan in October 2014, ICANN staff developed and consulted on a Draft Five-Year Operating Plan, which was adopted by the Board in June 2015.
