Hi All,
I can confirm the understanding.

Prioritet: Høj


Following discussions within the CWG last week, and again yesterday, it seems essential that we communicate effectively with Sidley in three areas:

1.       The CWG’s requirements in order to finish the proposal

2.       The CWG’s requirements to support the proposal in B.A.

3.       The CWG’s potential requirements post B.A. and/or with implementation

Arguably, the current scope of work deals with 1 & 2 above and we have not yet properly scoped or discussed 3.
Of 1 & 2 above, 1 is clearly most urgent so I’ll concentrate on that here.

N.B. Our current plan is to have the final reading of the proposal in tomorrow’s CWG meeting

It is my understanding that we need to secure the following from Sidley in advance of concluding the final proposal for send-off next week.

A.      A form of language which effectively captures the conditional nature of the proposal i.e. that the proposal is valid if and only if adequate accountability mechanisms
(as currently contemplated by the CWG in conjunction with the CCWG) are in place at the time of the transition (or failing that or irrevocably committed to being in place within a defined and agreed timeframe).

B.      A confirmation around the use (or not) of the ICANN bylaws (golden?) as described in the CWG proposal in order to capture the necessary components of the CWG proposal that need to be enshrined in the ICANN bylaws

C.      A confirmation that the final proposal is consistent with Sidley’s advice given to date and, to the extent that it is not, what changes are required.

Please can you confirm this understanding as soon as possible in order that this position and associated instructions can be communicated to Sidley as soon as possible.

Given that I believe tomorrow’s scheduled Client Committee meeting is leaving it too late, I have taken the opportunity to directly communicate this draft scope of final instructions (A-C above) to Holly & Sharon so that they are on notice that we are working it up.

Thank-you for your prompt attention to this.
