Subject:  CCWG Final report for your consideration

Dear Chartering Organizations,
The Cross Community Working Group on Enhancing ICANN Accountability
(CCWG-Accountability) is pleased to provide its Chartering Organizations
with its report on Work Stream 1 recommendations. You can download the full
report here: https://community.icann.org/x/8w2AAw
<https://community.icann.org/x/8w2AAw> .
As per the CCWG-Accountability¹s Charter, we now seek your approval to
submit this final report to the ICANN Board and ask you to consider this
approval in accordance with your respective SO or AC rules and procedures by
9 March 2016 to meet the overall timing requirements, which would allow the
IANA Stewardship Transition (as a whole) to proceed.
The report is the result of extensive work by the CCWG-Accountability¹s 28
members, 175 participants and a team of highly qualified legal advisors
since December 2014, which included over 221 calls or meetings, 3 public
consultations and more than 13,900 email messages. It represents a carefully
crafted balance between key requirements, specific legal advice, and
significant compromises by all who participated and includes diligent
attention to the input received through the Public Comment proceedings.
The final proposal has received the consensus support of the
CCWG-Accountability with five minority statements from members recorded for
Chartering Organization consideration (see Appendix A). Please note that we
are publishing our report today with the minority statements delivered by
the original 19 February deadline, but we have given our members a final
opportunity to revise, retract or add minority statements based on our
compromise reached this morning. We will send you a revised Appendix A on 25
As noted in the CCWG-Accountability report, the group worked to meet both
NTIA requirements for the overall IANA Stewardship Transition (Annex 14),
and the CWG-Stewardship dependencies for the naming community on ICANN
accountability enhancements (Annex 13). The co-chairs of the CWG-Stewardship
and the CCWG-Accountability have coordinated their efforts. The
CWG-Stewardship will deliver a letter to you confirming that its
dependencies have been met, thus allowing the IANA Stewardship Transition
proposal to move forward.
We will make ourselves together with or other key contributors available to
you before and during the ICANN 55 meeting in Marrakech to answer any
questions you may have and explain any details of the report. For your
information, further background documents as well as the slides, recordings
and transcripts of recent webinars explain the details of the final proposal
are available here: https://community.icann.org/x/ogDxAg
<https://community.icann.org/x/ogDxAg> .
Should you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
Thank you very much for your continued support.
Thomas Rickert, Mathieu Weill and Leon Sanchez
CCWG-Accountability Co-Chairs
