[atrt2] URGENT: Final Draft RFP

Your original proposal was "whether in particular 
the views and advice provided by GAC has been 
duly taken into account given the specific tasks 
of national governments with respect to public policy."

There was a strong feeling from both Brian and 
Avri that we not call out one particular 
stakeholder. Moreover, like other parts of my 
original draft that were omitted, we need to be 
careful that the wording of the RFP does not 
direct the outcome (that is, by us identifying 
the issue of whether the GAC input is taken into 
account, we are to some extent reaching a 
conclusion ahead of time - we wouldn't ask the 
question if there were not a perceived problem).

We already have the sub-bullet: "to what extent 
process incorporates the views, advice and needs 
of all stakeholders, both those active in ICANN 
and those not typically present for ICANN deliberations (See Annex)."

In Brian's absence, we (the three vice-chairs) 
feel that the best we can do is to move the list 
of ICANN stakeholders from the Annex to the scope, replacing that bullet with:

"to what extent process incorporates the views, 
advice and needs stakeholders, ICANN Advisory 
Committees - Governmental Advisory Committee 
(GAC), At-large Advisory Committee (ALAC), 
Security and Stability Advisory Committee (SSAC), 
Root Server System Advisory Committee (RSSAC); 
Supporting Organizations - Generic Names 
Supporting Organization (GNSO), Country Code 
Names Supporting Organization (ccNSO), Address 
Supporting Organization (ASO); and those not 
typically present for ICANN deliberations (See Annex)."

And removing the footnotes in the Annex.

I hope that you can accept this so that we can 
issue the RFP prior to Brian's return.

Alan (on behalf of Lise and Avri)
