Dear All,


Please find attached the EPDP-Phase 2 Project package that closes out June

*	Project Timing, Status and Health:

*	Project duration is listed at 94% which reflects a revised
completion date of 31 July 2020.

*	Status has returned to "Revised Schedule" upgraded from "Target will
be missed" due to the Project Change Request reviewed by the GNSO Council at
its June meeting.
*	Health remains at "At-Risk" due to unstable agreements of key
recommendations of the SSAD.

*	Project Budget:

*	The EPDP-P2 was granted $760,000 following two resource requests
from the GNSO Council to the ICANN Board.
*	ICANN Org's fiscal year closed 30 June 2020, for which the remaining
budget was credited back to the reserve fund.

services and travel. $439,539 budget remained.

this is subject to a revision <$1K awaiting final expense reconciliation.
