Subject: RE: CCWG-AP Follow Up

Dear Marika,

Thank you for the opportunity to speak to the CCWG-AP regarding best practices. As a follow up, I would like to share a study conducted by Foundation Center regarding operational costs in foundations. Although the study focused on the economic impact of the 2009 financial crisis on 1,900 of the largest foundations in the United States, the data reflects a diversity of costs depending on level of assets and staff size.

As the CCWG-AP reflects upon costs within their decision making matrix, I want to stress that the costs depend upon the levels of control, use of resources (time, energy, ties) and the unique role ICANN plays within the internet landscape. For example, its important to acknowledge that there will be inherent costs of regulation and scrutiny that are specific to ICANN as well as time/cost used in ICANN’s multi-stakeholder approach.

I hope this study highlights the industry standard, but also the variety of factors that play into costs. I am happy to respond to any further questions as the group proceeds in their deliberations.

Kind regards,
Sarah Berg
