EPDP Phase 2 - Meeting #74
Proposed Agenda
Thursday 23 July 2020 at 14.00 UTC

1.                            Roll Call & SOI Updates (5 minutes)

2.                            Confirmation of agenda (Chair)

3.                            Welcome and housekeeping issues (Chair) (5 minutes)

  1.  Expected approach for consensus designation and timeline:

From the GNSO Working Group Guidelines:
The recommended method for discovering the consensus level designation on recommendations should work as follows:
i. After the group has discussed an issue long enough for all issues to have been raised, understood and discussed, the Chair, or Co-Chairs, make an evaluation of the designation and publish it for the group to review.
ii. After the group has discussed the Chair's estimation of designation, the Chair, or Co-Chairs, should reevaluate and publish an updated evaluation.
iii. Steps (i) and (ii) should continue until the Chair/Co-Chairs make an evaluation that is accepted by the group.
iv. In rare case, a Chair may decide that the use of polls is reasonable. Some of the reasons for this might be:
o A decision needs to be made within a time frame that does not allow for the natural process of iteration and settling on a designation to occur.
o It becomes obvious after several iterations that it is impossible to arrive at a designation. This will happen most often when trying to discriminate between Consensus and Strong support but Significant Opposition or between Strong support but Significant Opposition and Divergence.

            Modified timeline:

     *   22 – 26 July – continuation of online dialogue on category 2 items
     *   27 July – confirmation in google doc of proposed agreements on category 2 items by staff support team – by 28 July groups to confirm if they cannot live with the proposed agreements (if cannot live, proposed agreements will NOT be applied)
     *   23 24 July: distribution of Final Report and consensus designations. As a reminder, the Chair will make an evaluation of the support achieved for the recommendations and publish its designation for the group to review.
     *   243 - 27 29 July: opportunity for EPDP Team to respond to consensus designations, review by Chair of input received, if any, confirmation by Chair of designation.
     *   27 29 July: deadline for minority statements.
     *   31 July: No later than date for submission of Final Report to the GNSO Council

4.                            Finalization of review of cannot live with items:

  1.  Priority 2 related items
     *   Item #1
     *   Item #37-41

  1.  Any further items flagged after review of proposed approach for cannot live with items documented in google doc<https://docs.google.com/document/d/16BICriVfOPiEeve4A-x6TYKPbgRKqvhX/edit> following 21/22 calls or following review of updated rec #8 language<https://docs.google.com/document/d/10xb5eE3CxTvx5tFNmhsO_F7OdOIRMJFH/edit>
