RATIONALE FOR RESOLUTION PTI2017.01.18.01:
In accordance with Article 9, Section 9.2 of the PTI Bylaws, the Board is to adopt an annual budget and submit it to the ICANN Board. On 24 October 2016, a draft of the PTI FY18 Operating Plan and Budget was posted for public comment. This version was based on numerous discussions with senior members of PTI and ICANN Management, and extensive consultations with the ICANN community, including the customers of the IANA Functions. Subsequent activities, including face-to-face meetings during ICANN's 57th Public Meeting in Hyderabad, India and email communications, as well as comments received through the public comment forum, resulted in minor revisions to the draft that was posted for comment.
In addition to the public comment, there were also consultations with the community on the PTI FY18 Operating Plan and Budget before, during and after ICANN 57. These included sessions with the ccNSO, with the constituencies and stakeholder groups within the GNSO (including the Registries Stakeholder Group), discussions with the Regional Internet Registries and representatives from the IAB. The leadership of all ICANN Stakeholder Groups and Advisory Committees also received communications regarding the PTI FY18 Operating Plan and Budget, separately and in addition to any participation in the community Budget Working Group.
This FY18 Operating Plan and Budget will have a positive impact in that it provides a proper framework pursuant to which PTI will be operated, in accordance with the multistakeholder community's proposals. It also provides the basis for the organization to be held accountable in a transparent manner. This will have a fiscal impact on ICANN, its affiliate PTI and the community as is intended. Approving this Operating Plan and Budget is key to maintaining the security, stability and resiliency of the domain name system (DNS), as it is core to maintaining PTI's operations.
