Dr. Stephen Crocker, Chair
ICANN Board of Directors

Dear ICANN Board of Directors,

Following the submission on the Cross Community Working Group on Enhancing ICANN Accountability (CCWG-Accountability) Work Stream 1 Report to its Chartering Organizations on 23 February 2016, we are pleased to announce that transmittal of the report has been approved by all six organizations. Each of the Chartering Organizations’ approval and statement is recorded as follows, in order received:
Security and Stability Advisory Committee <http://mm.icann.org/pipermail/accountability-cross-community/2016-March/011606.html> (SSAC)
Address Supporting Organization <http://mm.icann.org/pipermail/accountability-cross-community/2016-March/011639.html> (ASO)
At-Large Advisory Committee <http://mm.icann.org/pipermail/accountability-cross-community/2016-March/011658.html> (ALAC)
Governmental Advisory Committee <http://mm.icann.org/pipermail/accountability-cross-community/2016-March/011676.html> (GAC)
Generic Names Supporting Organization <http://mm.icann.org/pipermail/accountability-cross-community/2016-March/011694.html> (GNSO)
Country Codes Names Supporting Organisation <http://mm.icann.org/pipermail/accountability-cross-community/2016-March/011697.html> (ccNSO)[1] <x-msg://160/#_ftn1>

In addition, the CWG-Stewardship certified <http://mm.icann.org/pipermail/accountability-cross-community/2016-February/011509.html> that the CCWG-Accountability has met the dependencies on which their proposal was expressly conditioned, thus allowing the IANA Stewardship Transition (as a whole) to proceed.

The report is the result of extensive work by the CCWG-Accountability’s 28 members, 175 participants and a team of highly qualified legal advisors since December 2014, which included over 221 calls or meetings, 3 public consultations and more than 13,900 email messages. It represents a carefully crafted balance between key requirements, specific legal advice, and significant compromises by all who participated and includes diligent attention to the input received through the Public Comment proceedings. Prior to submitting to the Chartering Organizations for their approval, the Work Stream 1 Report received the consensus support within the CCWG-Accountability itself, with five minority statements recorded in Appendix A of our Report, and available here <https://community.icann.org/x/0ReAAw>.

With the sign off by the Chartering Organizations of this report, the CCWG-Accountability is pleased to transmit this report to the Board as part of the IANA Stewardship Transition process. We are available to you in order to answer any questions you may have and to explain any details of the proposal. For your information, comprehensive further background documents and reference materials are available here <https://community.icann.org/x/ogDxAg>.

CCWG-Accountability Co-Chairs
