ICANN announces timetable for release of Strategic Plan

31 October 2004

ICANN is preparing to release a proposed three year Strategic Plan. This
Strategic Plan sets the direction and establishes the three-year goal
for ICANN's Staff and Operational Functions. It has been prepared by the
office of the ICANN President and CEO in consultation with ICANN's Board
of Director and after receiving input from the ICANN community. The
final Plan will be completed after further consultation involving the
ICANN Community. 

In preparing a multi-year Strategic Plan, ICANN is applying sound
business practices which allow ICANN to build on its successes and
incorporate improvements over time. While the plan will guide ICANN for
the three years 2005-2007, it will be updated annually by the Executive
and Board to respond to the dynamic policy resolutions and interests of
ICANN's diverse constituencies.

ICANN underwent a reform process during 2002-3 that restructured and
strengthened the ICANN policy process. This Strategic Plan does not
revisit the reform process but focuses on defining strategic priorities
for operational roles only, those required to sustain a stable, global
and multi-stakeholder organisation, and to support the organisation's
policy development process. 

This Plan also does not seek to make any statement or limitation on how
the Internet community may seek to engage the ICANN policy forum, or
prescribe any future direction for policy development.

The timetable for releasing ICANN's Strategic Plan is as follows: 

November 16th: Publication on Website
November 16th: Eight week Public Comment Forum opens (to January 15th
November 17th-23rd: Briefings for ICANN Community
December 3rd-4th: Presentation at ICANN Cape Town Meetings Public Forum
January 15th-30th 2005: Revision and final drafting of ICANN Strategic
January 31st- February 11th, 2005: Second period of Public Comment on
Final Draft version.
