The question is: does your AC or SO have any facts to offer that show the need for a Recommendation regarding ICANN's management of it finances. Please pass this on to the SSAC chair and the other Chairs. Let the other Chairs know that we received a question for clarification and this is the response. Thank you!

I am sorry, but I do not understand whether there is a question in there or not. Or if this is information only.
Can you, if there is a question, ask it in plain English?
Your language is too difficult for non-native English speakers.

On behalf of Brian Cute – Chair of the Second Accountability & Transparency Review Team (ATRT2)
The Second Accountability and Transparency Review Team (ATRT2) continues to gather data to inform its Report and Recommendations that will be sent to the ICANN Board by December 31, 2013. Among the issues ATRT2 is reviewing is ICANN financials. Among the comments from some AC/SOs there have been requests for ATRT2 to look into ICANN financials including but not limited to e.g. traceability of projects in the budget and plans for the future budgets regarding the use of the turnover expected to be received from new gTLDs.
Under the AoC, ATRT2 is required to issue Recommendations on a fact basis. As such, ATRT2 is interested to hear from your AC whether there are facts that would substantiate a Recommendation from ATRT2. ATRT2 will issue its draft Report and Recommendations for public comment by mid-October 2013. Inputs from the community on this, or other issues, should be received by mid-September to afford ATRT2 the opportunity to factor those inputs into its draft Report and Recommendations. Should your AC wish to offer any such inputs to the ATRT2, please send them to input-to-atrt2 at icann.org <input-to-atrt2 at icann.org> by mid-September.
