Anne, in my reading, what we are saying is that the ongoing operational costs will be relatively similar for all mechanisms because all will have to do approximately the same work and we have no reason to believe that labour or overhead costs will be higher or lower for any of them.

Yes, in B we will use an established organization for some part of the work, but that organization does not necessarily have surplus labour waiting for our contract, so they may have to staff up as well. And even if they don't, the ongoing costs will be similar (all they save are the onboarding and possibly training costs).

I am assuming that for this calculation, we are ignoring markup that a third party may add to their bill, possibly increasing the costs for outsourced work.  In all cases, some labour may should up as salaries and overhead, and some may show up as contract costs (just as some of the policy people who work on these WGs are salaried in ICANN's emply, and some are contract folks.

To all CCWG Members and Participants,
In determining how to respond to the poll, I am really struggling with the Assumption that (as expressed by the ICANN org comments on page 9 of the Proposed Final Report), “The workforce costs, except where identified below, are presumed to be the same across all mechanisms.”

I would appreciate any and all comments on this particular assumption given that Mechanism B collaboration with a pre-existing non-profit for administration of the grant-making function strikes me as a very different type of structure which does not contemplate “staffing up” as would be necessary with Mechanism A or Mechanism C.

Please advise.  And if Xavier could elaborate as to why Mechanism B requires just as much in Workforce cost (as opposed to professional fees that would be payable to the third party non-profit), that would be helpful.

Thank you,

Subject: [Ccwg-auctionproceeds] Revised Proposed Final Report and Indicative Poll on Mechanisms - Deadline 3 December 2019

Dear all,

Please find attached the latest revision of the proposed Final Report. This version incorporates input received over the mailing list since 8 November. It also includes some suggested edits from the leadership team intended to improve clarity and consistency of the text in certain sections. If you have concerns about any of the suggested edits, please respond on the mailing list by Tuesday 3 December.

As agreed by the CCWG during the face-to-face session at ICANN66, the next step is to open the indicative poll on possible mechanisms for allocation of auction proceeds. You can access the poll here: http://input.icann.org/go?iv=1db40f7xlo0xj. Members and participants are both encouraged to complete the poll.

As a reminder, it is not necessary to consult with your groups to respond to this poll. You can respond from your own perspective based on the CCWG discussions to date and your own analysis. The results of the indicative poll will be used to finalize content on the recommended mechanism(s) in the proposed Final Report. During the public comment period on the proposed Final Report, SO/ACs and SG/Cs will have an opportunity to respond to the recommendations in the report and members can ensure at that point that they are aligned with their groups.

The deadline for completing the indicative poll is 23:59 UTC on Tuesday 3 December. An outline of the timeline for next steps is attached for reference.

Kind regards,

Emily Barabas | Policy Manager
