Dear Alan

I am somewhat surprised about your e-mail and I am not sure that I fully understand the reasons for the proposed change of the approach we agreed at the conference call last week. As you will recall the agreement we reached also included adding a sentence as proposed by me. Upon your proposal it was also agreed that the exact wording of the sentence should be agreed between you and me bilaterally. I have not seen your proposal for fine tuning of the wording yet but I will urge you to send your proposal for a more precise wording of the sentence to me as soon as possible as I think we all agree that it is very important to get the process started very soon in accordance with what was agreed at our conference call last week.

Best regards

Emne: [atrt2] URGENT: Final Draft RFP
Prioritet: Høj

Attached please find the hopefully final RFP. Before disappearing for the next week, Brian made some edits, one of which removed the explicit reference to the GAC under scope of work. Since he is not here to present his rationale, I have temporarily left in his comment about why he felt strongly that the particular reference should not be included in the RFP.

Partly in response to that, Lise and I, with Avri's agreement included an explicit reference to ICANN ACs and SOs in the Annex description of stakeholders.

In addition to posting this RFP publicly, staff has identified two potential consultants to explicitly be invited to bid, One World Trust and Ken Bour. With this note, I ask staff to explain why they believe that they could meet our needs.

If anyone on the RT has additional suggestions for who to invite, please let us know quickly. The list of those submitting proposals to the ATRT1 competition can be found at
http://www.icann.org/en/about/aoc-review/atrt/rfp-respondents-evaluation-19jun10-en.pdf .

If we are to meet the target issue date of July 1 (next Monday!), we need to finalize everything quickly, so I ask for all comments and suggestions to arrive no later that 12:00 UTC on Friday, June 28.

If there are any crucial edits to them RFP itself, please submit them as soon as possible to allow discussion.
