Hi Adrian,

thank you for your interest,
for clarification, an applicant won't necessary apply or/and have all kind of support.

1- it respect cost-recovery principle and we will work with the new gTLD program staff to accommodate that (Chuck amendment).  We will work on topic of  external sources of donors or foundations willing to support financially applicants.

AK>> So will you be proposing for a discount from ICANN? Yes or no? To be clear, by discount I mean a reduction in the total application fee paid to ICANN. It may be for example, that the applicant pays part of the fee and the rest is sourced from another means (foundation etc).

2- yes, we didn't state  exceptions for applicants regarding those requirements, assistance or support can be technical (from  various service providers etc) or financial ( subsidized from external sources). the WG will work  to figure out how this could best be done.

AK>> The applicant will pay for Registry Services but they may be subsidised from an external party? Yes or no? Also, these Registry Services will comply with all other Registry standards as requested in the AGB? Yes or no?

3- translation of material etc but not necessarily by ICANN, again the WG will work to figure out how it can be done


as you see the WG will work to explore how things will be done (guidelines)

I have been reviewing the work of the JAS WG.

It is all good work that is deserved of our attention.

However, I have read the various Board resolutions that were the genesis of the working. The original notion was developed in order to provide support to applicants.

Is it fair to say that, in your mind (or the WG’s for that matter), the following will be true given the support regime as you would have it;

- a new gTLD applicant will have to pay the application fee in its entirety but will be subsidized through a foundation or external parties?
- a new gTLD applicant will have to establish a Registry System to full and ‘standard’ ICANN compliance but may be subsidized in order to cover the costs associated?
- ICANN may provide assistance in preparing the application for those where English is not a first language

Can you clarify this for me so I can take this back to my SG? Thanks.
