[council] Motion to extend PPSC and OSC charters

We can form the oversight committee any time we want.  Do we want to do that before the DTs and SCs finish their work?  If so, how do we avoid duplication and maximize efficiencies?

It's clear that the 2 SCs need to continue to work. Just our recent conversations re such things as the DOI recommendations or the voting procedures show that more work needs to be done. However, I would also like to ask where we are with regards to the oversight committee that there was talk of forming? Could that not also help move things in the right direction?

Rob kindly reminded me that the latest extensions of the PPSC and OSC end in Cartagena.  Because both SC's and some of their WTs are still working, I am submitting this motion to extend their charters further.

Whereas in October 2008, the GNSO Council established a framework for implementing the various GNSO Improvements identified and approved by the ICANN Board of Directors (see - GNSO Council Improvements Implementation Plan)
http://www.icann.org/en/topics/gnso-improvements/gnso-improvements-implementation-plan-16oct08.pdf <http://www.icann.org/en/topics/gnso-improvements/gnso-improvements-implementation-plan-16oct08.pdf> ;

Whereas that framework included the formation of two Steering Committees - the Operations Steering Committee and the Policy Process Steering Committee - to charter and coordinate the efforts of five community work teams designed to develop specific recommendations to implement specific aspects of the improvements;

Whereas the Council intended the charters of the committees (and their attendant work teams) to be temporary and not to extend beyond the 2009 annual ICANN meeting without specific action by the Council;

Whereas the Council has now twice extended the terms of those committees to allow the GNSO community implementation recommendations work to continue (see - http://gnso.icann.org/meetings/minutes-council-24sep09.htm <http://gnso.icann.org/meetings/minutes-council-24sep09.htm>  and http://gnso.icann.org/meetings/minutes-council-10mar10-en.htm <http://gnso.icann.org/meetings/minutes-council-10mar10-en.htm> );

Whereas the Council acknowledges the hard work of those work teams and notes that those committees and their teams are diligently continuing their work;

RESOLVED, The Council extends the terms of the Operations Steering Committee and the Policy Process Steering Committee and their respective work teams as necessary through the San Francisco ICANN public meeting in March 2011. The Council directs each steering committee and applicable work team chair to identify the specific targets and benchmarks for their work and to share that information with the Council by 19 January 2011.
