  Approved July 2012 - June 2015 Strategic Plan Posted

18 May 2012

Based upon the Board Resolutions 
from the recent Special Meeting of the Board of Directors held in 
Amsterdam on 6 May 2012, the adopted 2012-2015 Strategic Plan

During the Special Meeting of the Board of Directors held in Amsterdam 
the Board approved the July 2012-June 2015 Strategic Plan, and directed 
the President and CEO to move forward with the Internationalization 
survey and community-based operational planning process based on the 
strategic objectives as set forth in the plan. The aspects of the 
2012-2015 Strategic Plan that cover the expansion of ICANN's 
international presence and engagement efforts are deferred pending 
further direction from the Board.

      Rationale for Resolution 2012.05.06.06

To remain accountable to the global Internet community, the Board is 
taking this action to allow for community input on the further planning 
for ICANN's international presence and engagement. There has been a 
community survey on these items, and a paper will be produced that will 
be the subject of public comment and discussion. In addition, continued 
work towards these efforts as set forth in the 2011-2014 Strategic Plan 
is not prudent, therefore those portions of the 2011-2014 Strategic Plan 
are deferred.

After review of these inputs, and as appropriate to respond to inputs, 
initiatives to expand ICANN's international presence and engagement may 
be updated within the 2012-2015 Strategic Plan, and included within the 
2012-2013 Operating Plan. In order to allow for the 2012-2013 
operational planning cycle to proceed, the Board approves the 2012-2015 
Strategic Plan.

While there will likely be a fiscal impact as a result of this work, the 
fiscal impact of undertaking the survey and review process is minimal. 
Further, the deferral of current initiatives within the 2011-2012 
Operating Plan regarding the further allocation or reallocation of staff 
and resources that relate to ICANN's international presence and 
engagement prior to the Prague Meeting will preserve resources from 
having to be reallocated as necessary after this review is complete.

This action is not expected to have any impact on the security or the 
stability of the DNS.

This version of the Strategic Plan includes extensive community 
feedback, including a 45-day Public Comment period (10.3.11 – 11.17.11). 
Many thanks to the Community for its continued support and input.

ICANN's Strategic Plan is a three-year rolling, annually updated 
strategic planning process and feeds in to the larger ICANN planning 
process as the adopted Strategic Plan guides the development of the FY13 
Operating Plan and Budget.
