CCWG WS2 Next Steps

Now that we have outlined the WS2 workplan as part of the discussion in
Helsinki, there are various areas where additional follow up will be needed
as the subgroups get underway.

Please note that the Subgroup sign up Google Doc will be closed as of 12
July 2016, to sign up as either an active participant or an observer in any
of the Subgroups going forward please send your request to ACCT-Staff
(acct-staff at icann.org).


The following timeline was presented in Helsinki with the work divided into
two approaches.  Simple topics are anticipated to be short term and should
be able to reach consensus quickly with a Public Comment period planned for
October 2016 and the final output to be presented at the ICANN meeting in
Copenhagen.  The more complex topics will take longer to develop and as such
will provide an update on the progress of the subgroup¹s work in Copenhagen,
with the final report expected to be delivered in June 2017. An early
indication from the Subgroup Rapporteurs as to whether their topic is on the
simple timeline or the complex timeline would be useful so that the CCWG can
plan its work to enable full participation in the subgroups of interest for
each participant.

Designated rapporteurs will need to reaffirm their time commitment,
including the meeting time to work with the CCWG leadership team in
preparatory and post drafting of their recommendations and reports.


Each subgroup is expected to deliver a report of its findings and
recommendations to the CCWG Plenary for discussion and consensus.  Periodic
updates on the work of each subgroup will need to be provided by the
Rapporteurs during CCWG Plenary sessions to track progress.

The expectation is that the output reports and recommendations will look
like an Annex of the Work Stream 1 report. The structure is an executive
summary; a description of the issue, including the description of the
current state of play and incorporation of the discussions and inputs
received from the Work Stream 1 effort, the supplemental report; and a
section describing the requirements for the recommendation and how the
recommendation has been validated against WS1 recommendations. The report
and recommendation will also need to include text to demonstrate how the
subgroups recommendations are meeting what was previously known as the NTIA

Each subgroup needs to be careful to demonstrate that they are conducting
the due diligence needed in meeting the NTIA criteria with each and every
one of its recommendations and requirements.  These requirements will then
be translated into specific Bylaw articles after CCWG plenary discussion and
consensus and a Public Comment period has been held on the CCWG


Staff can support up to nine (9), one hour meeting slots per week, which
will be available for the WS2 subgroup Rapporteurs to work together to
select their group¹s meeting dates and times.

The weekly 1-hour available slots for July and August will be as follows:
€ three (3) slots at 05:00 UTC,
€ three (3) slots at 13:00 UTC
€ three (3) slots at 20:00 UTC

The timing of the available slots will be reconsidered at the end of August
so adjustments can be made, if necessary.  However the nine (9) weekly one
(1) hour slots will remain consistent in order for ICANN staff to support
the work of all the subgroups with no more than three (3) slots to occur on
any one day of the week.
