Thanks for your comments, but Leadership has to balance ALL of the comments that we get which means that very few proposals from any groups are adopted as is.  That is one of the purposes of the multi-stakeholder model.  The compromise proposal that we believe can get the most support is involving the community in the development of the selection/evaluation criteria as well as in the legal terms that relate to the CPE process.  But ICANN as an organization needs to have some flexibility to act and look out for the corporation as a whole.  It is ICANN Org that will have to manage their vendor, pay their vendor, etc.

Do you at least support the above?  We understand you want the community to have more rights, but do you at least support these rights?  We are trying to get to the end here.  Giving the community involvement in the selection/evaluation criteria development is much better than the status quo, correct?

Good evening:

I have a few comments:

1.  The leadership proposal involves a significant dilution of the ALAC comments, which I do not approve.
     The demand for community involvement in the selection of CPE Providers stems from the very unsatisfactory outcome of the 2012 process. In my view, there was no consensus in the PDP supporting of the status quo.

More generally, it is implausible that a single Provider could deal with this competently and equitably world-wide.

2.  Thus the text should refer throughout to 'ProviderS' and 'candidateS'.

This is the Eighth Topical E-mail on outstanding questions being “put to the list.”  This covers an additional Community question stemming from the ALAC comments (Topic 34)

Remember:  We are down to the wire on this, so unless you have a VERY strong objection to these, we will put these into the document.  If you do have a big issue with the responses to these (all of which were previously discussed and in emails over the past 1.5 months), please let us know ASAP.  Only comments that provide the rationale for the objection with proposed replacement text to address the specific outstanding questions will now be considered.

Lets not let the perfect be the enemy of the good.

Comment from the ALAC:  The ALAC set forth some processes for the selection of the CPE Provider(s) – Namely, that there is a need for greater community participation in ICANN’s engagement of a CPE service provider/panelists, in the following 4 aspects: (i) the development of criteria by which ICANN Org is to evaluate and select candidates; (ii) the shortlisting of identified candidates; (iii) the final selection process; and (iv) the terms for inclusion into the contract between ICANN Org and the selected candidate.

Leadership Proposal. Based on the discussions that took place on the call as well as in other discussions of similar topics, we would recommend adopting the following recommendation:

“The Working Group recommends that the process to develop evaluation and selection criteria for the Community Priority Evaluation Provider (CPE Provider) must include mechanisms to ensure appropriate feedback from the ICANN community.  In addition, any terms included in the contract between ICANN Org and the CPE Provider regarding the CPE process must be subject to public comment.”

Please note that based on previous discussions, Leadership did not believe that involving the community in the actual selection of the CPE Provider had sufficient support or would be acceptable to ICANN Org.

Please have your comments (If any) by no later than 23:59:59 UTC on Tuesday, December 8, 2020.
