Per the discussion in Singapore, I am wondering whether the Final Report from the Policy Development Process Working Group to the GNSO is a matter for consideration by SCI.  ICANN staff opined that SCI should not take this up until after the ICANN Board had approved it.  However, at that point, it seems to me that it would take another Board resolution for any recommendations made by SCI to be adopted by the GNSO and then by the Board.

I may not understand how the SCI is supposed to work, but had understood its function to be one of advising the GNSO with respect to recommendations made to it.  If a recommendation is delayed until after ICANN Board approval, it would seem the SCI may be less effective in its advisory role to the GNSO.

Perhaps "after the fact" review of recommendations to the GNSO is what was intended.

Thank you,

Subject: [gnso-improvem-impl-sc] meeting

Dear SCI colleagues,

As a result of our last F2F meeting in Singapore we've put our work more or less on hold by waiting for input regarding issues raised by the GNSO council or a group chartered by the council: no issue raised = no work - which could make us happy...

At the moment I personally don't see a real issue at the table which would force us to hold the FSF meeting in Dakar still scheduled on Sunday morning. So I've asked Glen to remove it from the GNSO schedule.

I'll provide a short report to the council explaining the SCI status and remind them about the possibility of raising issues for consideration with the SCI. This message could also be sent to the SGs and Constituencies.

In addition I think we could now follow the idea from the Singapore meeting of asking WGs or other affected parties about their experience with the new WG procedures. A framework or list of questions can be developed after the Dakar meeting for that purpose, and I'll take initiative on that.

I hope to see many of you in Dakar.

Kind regards
