Hi Giovanni, 

The Design Team on Budget in the CWG worked with Xavier Calvez and received
an itemization of IANA operation costs for the FY15 budget. With this
received information, the recommendation looked to FY16 and beyond. You can
review the documents provided by Xavier here:

The CWG will be submitting comments to the FY16 public comment to submit the
recommendations regarding itemizations for IANA operating costs. If the
information collected by the Design Team on Budget is useful for ccNSO SOP
comments, please feel free to refer to this information. If you would like
to discuss further, I can put you in touch with Chuck Gomes, who lead the
Design Team on Budget.

Dear Mathieu, 

Thanks for this.

Concerning “Future FY ICANN Operating Plans & Budgets, and if possible even
the FY16 ICANN Operating Plan & Budget, include at a minimum itemization of
all IANA operations costs in the FY ICANN Operating Plan & Budget to the
project level and below as needed.”, I’d like to remind the group that the
ccNSO Strategy and Operating Plan working group has requested this kind of
information countlessly over the past eight years. When responding to the
request, ICANN staff underlined the difficulties relating to such cost
itemisation because of various issues. I am not saying we should lose faith
in having them one day, but the community may get answers very similar to
what we already heard.

As ccNSO SOP chair, I will make sure this request is well highlighted in the
coming ccNSO SOP comment on the FY16 ICANN Operating Plan & Budget.
