I noticed a few issues with the RFP, draft announcement, and timeline, so
Mohamed and I are sorting through these with Alice:
1. The latest version of the RFP still had 31 December as the target date;
it has been fixed in the attached and in Dropbox.
2. We’ve specified in the announcement that icg-forum at icann.org is the
address to use for RFP clarification questions.
3. We didn’t have any language in the announcement about how we want the
communities to submit proposals to us. I added a sentence to indicate that
the proposals should be conveyed to the ICG mailing list by an ICG
4. The timeline needs to go out as well and should be announced as part of
the same announcement. also found an error in the v6 version Russ
circulated, in the way the web forum was described. I’ve attached an updated
version for publication, v7, and put it in Dropbox.
5. The timeline did not have a deadline for comments. I was not sure if this
was intentional or not. I’ve inserted October 6 as a deadline.
Given how late it is today, I think we should plan to publish the
announcement, RFP, and timeline tomorrow (9 September).

Updated draft announcement text is below and on Dropbox:

Global Multistakeholder Internet community.

Should any community submitting a proposal require  clarifications to the
RFP, these should be submitted to the ICG on or before Wednesday, 24
September 2014.  Submissions should be sent by email to icg-forum at icann.org
before this date, and responses will be provided by the ICG by 20 October
2014. Clarification questions will be publicly archived at

We expect communities to be able to begin work immediately on their
proposals, in light of the aggressive timetable for this work.

The communities should submit their proposals to the ICG before or on 15
January 2015. Proposals should be conveyed to the ICG by ICG members.

The ICG has also released a suggested timeline for the transition process:

<please insert a direct link to the timeline>

While this timeline is aggressive, every attempt has been made to be
flexible and allow all communities to participate effectively.  The ICG is
therefore providing this timeline for review and comment.  Please provide
comments by email to icg-forum at icann.org by 6 October 2014. They will be
publicly archived at http://forum.icann.org/lists/icg-forum.
