[Ccwg-auctionproceeds] For your review - updated proposal for individual appeals mechanism

I have been doing some research as well regarding "appeal mechanisms", and I was struck as I read the suggested process, that we are proposing too many layers, and ... well, a bureaucratic process.

Perhaps we recommend a much "lighter" process. As Sylvia and Mary are suggesting.

Have a timeline for:
Notice of decision
And Why the grant was not approved. [avoid use of term - rejected]

Be clear on the website of the "mechanism", and in all correspondence [approved by independent legal]  that there is not an appeal mechanism. And be sure that there is no indication of a "right" to receive funding, so we avoid litigation issues. Keep this separate from ICANN processes so no one is confused that the ICANN appeal processes can be utilized.

Dear All,

I agree with Sylvia's comments.

Since this is a grant, I think feedback to the unsuccessful applicant(s) is good enough and as Sylvia rightly stated, could be hard, no matter the mechanism that is finally adopted.

I also agree with her that the quantum of funds is too small for such an elaborate process with the attendant costs and time resources.

I think we should recommend a clear application and inclusive feedback process without complications or subject to multiple interpretations. (No fine prints)

Thanks Marika for sharing this.

It is very unusual that non-profit grants program offer an appeal mechanism. As I mentioned before,  I do not recommend it. It is hard enough to be able to provide feedback to unsuccessful applicants. It puts into question the decisions of the selection panel, and expose the individuals volunteering there considerably.

Incorporating an appeal mechanism requires very detailed procedures, and designing that will require a lot of work. I do not agree to include this as a recommendation from the CCWG, maybe better to include it as a suggestion for the implementation phase to actually fleshed the whole process and provide the details, if it is something the rest of the group is really passionate about.

Here is an example of an appeal mechanism, and what it entails. The size of the grants could be one of the indicators to determine if it is worth the effort and the expense. In the case of this fund, each grant is larger than the whole auction proceeds funds we are discussing, and this is for governments receiving the grants (not small, medium applicants).
