PTI Point of Contact to IANA Naming Function Review
Whereas, the ICANN Bylaws require "The [ICANN] Board, or an appropriate committee thereof, shall cause periodic and/or special reviews (each such review, an "IFR") of PTI's performance of the IANA naming function against the contractual requirements set forth in the IANA Naming Function Contract and the IANA Naming Function SOW to be carried out by an IANA Function Review Team ("IFRT") established in accordance with Article 18 of the ICANN Bylaws."
Whereas, §18.2.a of the ICANN Bylaws requires that the first Periodic IFR shall be convened no later than 1 October 2018.
Whereas, §18.8(e) of the ICANN Bylaws specifies that "[t]he PTI Board shall select a PTI staff member to serve as a point of contact to facilitate formal lines of communication between the IFRT and PTI."
Resolved (PTI2018.09.21.02), the PTI Board hereby names PTI President Kim Davies to serve as the point of contact between PTI and the IFRT.
Resolved (PTI2018.09.21.03), the PTI Board directs the PTI President to provide regular reporting to the PTI Board on the status of work on the IFRT.
Rationale for Resolutions PTI2018.09.21.02 - 03:
The ICANN Board convened the first periodic IANA Naming Function Review ("IFR") to satisfy the requirement under §18.2 of the ICANN Bylaws that the first periodic IFR be convened no later than 1 October 2018. The IFR is a new accountability mechanism created as part of the IANA stewardship transition to ensure that PTI meets the needs and expectations of its naming customers by adhering to the contractual requirements set forth in the IANA Naming Function Contract and the IANA Naming Function Statement of Work.
In accordance with §18.8(e) of the ICANN Bylaws, the PTI Board has been directed to provide a staff member point of contact to support communication between the Review Team and PTI. While the PTI President will serve as point of contact to the IFRT, the PTI Board understands that due to the need for PTI to be involved with in supporting the IFRT to achieve a successful review, the PTI President may delegate some of the support work to other members of the PTI staff.
This action is within PTI's mission as it supports PTI's performance of the IANA Functions, and is also meeting a requirement from the ICANN Bylaws on ICANN's mission relating to coordination of the allocation and assignment of names in the root zone, and directly supports the public interest.
