> Dear SCI members,
> *As agreed at the SCI meeting today the deadline on this consensus call is
> extended through Monday, 25 April.*
> As agreed on the SCI call on 07 April, the attached document, *CONSENSUS
> CALL-GNSO Operating Procedures Proposed Revision Relating to Motions &
> Amendments 07 April 2016*, is being circulated for a formal Consensus
> Call.  The document is the proposed revision to the GNSO Operating
> Procedures to include the new text on submitting, seconding, and amending
> motions.
> *Background:*
>    - On 05 March 2015 the SCI submitted to the GNSO Council a Review
>    Request (see attached) concerning the fact that there are currently no
>    formal procedures on (i) whether, how and by whom a properly submitted
>    motion is to be seconded, and (ii) treatment of proposed amendments to such
>    motions as either “friendly” or “unfriendly”.    The Review Request was one
>    of two that the Council approved at its meeting on 16 April 2015. In
>    the attached Review Request the GNSO Council asked that the SCI codify the
>    existing customary practices of the GNSO Council and consider new processes
>    to govern the seconding of motions and amendments to motions.
>    - On 09 October 2015 the SCI agreed on a documentation of the Current
>    Practice Relating to Motions and sent a letter (attached) along with the
>    original Review Request and the documentation to Jonathan Robinson, GNSO
>    Council Chair.
>    - In December 2015 the SCI established a Sub Team A — Sara
>    Bockey, Angie Graves, Wolf-Ulrich Knoben, and Lawrence Olawale-Roberts, and
>    Rudi Vansnick — to review the current practice and the Sub Team submitted
>    its recommendations to the SCI on 02 March 2016.  The SCI discussed the
>    recommendations in Marrakech on 05 March and asked staff to draft revisions
>    to the GNSO Operating Procedures per the recommendations.
>    - On 07 April the SCI discussed the draft revisions and asked staff to
>    submit them to the SCI for a Consensus Call.
> *If there are no objections by Monday, 25 April (deadline extended from 21
> April), the language will be presumed to be accepted by Full Consensus.*
> Best regards,
> Julie
> Julie Hedlund, Policy Director
