I am interested, Chris.
I would assume that all should be seriously concerned re under funded compliance dept.
It is one area that I couldn't figure out at all from the report.
It needs clarification but maybe before we write our letter, as there is a bit of confusion in the report.

Thanks again for the hard work on this
Elisa, Steve: Could the BC once again take
up the issue of the consistently under-funded compliance department despite our
continued calls for funding an effective team (and the CEO’s – both past and
present - continued unfulfilled assurances)? We have so many historical
documents on this particular issue that the letter to the Board and CEO could
be a recap of those docs with a request to clarify to the Community how and why
the Compliance budget has been reduced at this most critical time in ICANN’s
My two cents…

Subject: [bc-gnso] FY14 Draft
Operating Plan and Budget
are some notes on the FY14 Draft Operating Plan and Budget was published a few
days early on May 10.
close 31 May and reply 21 June ahead of special Board meeting to approve on 28th
starts 1 July.
year has been very different from previous as the new CEO has implemented a new
project management system called ATASK.
Staff have been busy setting this up and inputting data.
a result there was no Framework Budget in February so the info in the draft
Budget is new to the community.
format this year is different, instead of 80 pages of document it is more
12 pages of glossy introduction and the rest tables.
– High level
revenue forecast is 76m$
slightly down on budget of 78m$
(71m$ in FY12 Forcast)
Plus gTLD at 174m$ up
from an original 61m$
(this is loading for non batching)
revenue budget is 88m$ ( historic transaction vols are
-1% this is up due to 2.5 million .com contract change, 4 meeting sponships,
New gTLD domain sales income in 7m).
gTLD at applications 98 m$
Expenses forecast 68m$ against
74m$ in FY13
Budget from 71m$
in FY12 Budget and 63m$ in FY12
FY13 expenses are again significant under budget
30m to reserves
m$ plus 57$ for new gTLD
year I reported Staff levels up from 149 to 189
FY13 forcast is average 179 and end of year 233
Budget is average 259 and end of year 284
– Low Level
diving into ATASK
Take information descriptive from myicann.org -
Structure of Objectives – Goals – Portfolios – Programs
the lowest level we have 160 ‘programmes’ which replaced the old projects
is information of expenses in this xls
you can see the 160 programmes (same as those in (myicann.org) with all
expenses broken down into Personnel, Travel, Prof Services, Admin
for us now is that programmes are different from projects, so any year on year
comparison is impossible.
struggle a bit with the programme titles which read to me more like job
descriptions than projects.
think the work ahead in the BC comment is to go through the 160 programmes and
ask ourselves what is this? If we don’t understand pose the
Compliance - 60% up
to 6.1 m$ in FY13 from 4.8 m$ in FY12 Budget and 3.8 m$ in FY12
- 11 programes
meeting updates 157k$
Monthly updates 0
Other programmes 571 k$
Complaint Processing and Monitoring Activities 1473 k$
Audit Programme 1115 k$
Contract and policy driven iniciatives 103 k$
New gTLD programme readiness 162 k$
CC programme 0$
Annaul report 0$
Total 3.5 m$
To answer Ron’s question again, looking at
the historical perspective. I looks more like the large increase in compliance
that we celebrated last year did not happen.
Budget was 4.8m
Forecast was 3.8m (need to research actual)
Budget was 6.9 m
Forecast was not reported?
To point Andrew in the right direction for progress on
as a great example for all to try):
Fadi’s Goals select “Engage Stakeholders globally”
Sally’s Portfolios select “Engage Stakeholders Globally” and
Tarik’s program “Implement Regional Strategies”
Sally’s Portfolios select “Regional initiatives, Including centres
of Excellence” and Sally’s program “Development and implement standard
to the xls
each program we can see the expenditure breakdown.
the above example
“Implement Regional Strategies” 5.5m$
“Development and implement standard office infrastructure”
99.340$ (in xls programme “Other Programs for Regional
Initiatives, including Centers of Excellence”
it looks loke 5,5m$ which probably was not in last year but who knows?
Andrews second Outreach question.
would best go through the xls searching on the word Outreach for all the
occurrences and investigate them one by one.
this is helpful
comment or request for more elaboration in a particular area most
volunteers to review the 160 programms and either
question what it is?
on high or low figure from BC perspective, comparing to previous years where
has not been much interest from the CSG work group this time around.
and Gabi had been interested in this subject last year so I am
hoping that it might continue.
