I agree, with 2 caveats:

- we must avoid discussing whether another body (ICANN Board, in this case) is "authorized" or not to undertake any action. I suggest "Consistent with its charter, the ICG considers that in transmitting the Transition Plan to NTIA, the ICANN Board shall not modify the Plan itself."

- Board Liaison: strictly speaking there's only ONE Liaison (WU Kuo-Wei). Elise is a Liaison from Staff, in a technical capacity.

Objet: [Internal-cg] Revised Text on Question about ICG and ICANN board

What is the role of the ICANN board in preparing the proposal? 

The ICG is independent of the ICANN board. The board is represented on the ICG by two liaisons, who are there to provide information about the IANA functions and to keep the board and ICG informed about the implications of the transition. Like any other member of the community, the ICANN board can submit public comments to the ICG about the final proposal. Consistent with U.S. federal government procurement rules, the NTIA needs to have the final proposal submitted to it by the ICANN board, but the board is not authorized to modify or approve the ICG's proposal. When the ICG submits its final proposal to ICANN, it will also be released to the general public and to NTIA as well.
