On behalf of Brian Cute - Chair of the Second Accountability & Transparency
Review Team (ATRT2)


Dear Jonathan,


The Second Accountability and Transparency Review Team (ATRT2) continues to
gather data to inform its Report and Recommendations that will be sent to
the ICANN Board by December 31, 2013.  Among the issues ATRT2 is reviewing
is ICANN financials.  Among the comments from some AC/SOs there have been
requests for ATRT2 to look into ICANN financials including but not limited
to e.g. traceability of projects in the budget and plans for the future
budgets regarding the use of the turnover expected to be received from new


Under the AoC, ATRT2 is required to issue Recommendations on a fact basis.
As such, ATRT2 is interested to hear from your SO whether there are facts
that would substantiate a Recommendation from ATRT2.  ATRT2 will issue its
draft Report and Recommendations for public comment by mid-October 2013.
Inputs from the community on this, or other issues, should be received by
mid-September to afford ATRT2 the opportunity to factor those inputs into
its draft Report and Recommendations.  Should your SO wish to offer any such
inputs to the ATRT2, please send them to  input-to-atrt2 at icann.org by




Brian Cute
