Hello All,

The Board discussed recommendation 12 in the Board information call today, and offers the following response:

First, the Board agrees that a transitional bylaw can be used to define the Board's commitment on WS2 matters.  Second, the effort anticipated in WS2 should be performed through cross community working groups chartered by multiple groups across ICANN, effort and not all work must be done by the existing CCWG-Accountability.  Third, the Board agrees that it will treat consensus based-recommendations on the limited list of WS2 topics (set out in the CCWG-Accountability's redline) just as it will consider the consensus-based WS1 recommendations from the CCWG-Accountability.  Fourth, the Board does not support the inclusion of a timeline for the required completion of WS2 efforts in the transitional Bylaw.  Finally, the Board supports that the costs of WS2 must be subject to the budgetary process for the year.  If the budget is exhausted and additional resources are necessary, the chartering organizations must support a request for Board consideration on additional funding.
