Dear Councilors,

There was an action item to prepare a draft GNSO Guidance Process (GGP) Initiation Request for certain New gTLD Subsequent Procedures topics. Attached, please find a draft that staff worked on with Jeff, in consultation with Council leadership. Note that this would be the first GGP ever and hence, here is a general point and some more specific ones to take into account in reviewing the draft.

  *   A GGP does not require a separate charter. Things like scope, working mechanism, and method of operation should all be contained in the initiation request.
  *   The draft contains a concept of Group 1 versus Group 2 topics. Group 1 is where the SubPro Final Report specifically called out substantive work that it envisioned would be completed during the Implementation Review Team phase. Group 2 will be topics that are identified by the ODP Team, where they are able to determine that additional guidance is needed to support the presumed eventual implementation. The specifics for Group 2 are currently to be determined, as we await input from the ODP Team.
  *   You will see that in Section 3 of the document, relevant Outputs from the SubPro Final Report are reproduced, and that there are Tasks identified. These tasks are envisioned as the specific scope of work for the GGP. Per the previous bullet, the tasks for Group 2 are still TBD.
  *   The suggested working model for this group is proposed as a representative steering group, which can do the work itself, but it can also delegate the work to sub-teams where it is evident that the work is best performed by those with specific expertise in a certain field.

If you have any questions or comments, please let us know. Council leadership is likely to propose the GGP as a topic for the May Council meeting.
