Public Comment

Public Comment is a vital part of our multistakeholder model. It provides a mechanism for stakeholders to have their opinions and recommendations formally and publicly documented. It is an opportunity for the ICANN community to effect change and improve policies and operations.

Improving Institutional Confidence

Open: 16 June 08
Closed: 31 July 08

Explanation:Following extensive input from the Internet community, a Transition Action Plan, Improving Institutional Confidence in ICANN document and an FAQ have been prepared by the President's Strategy Committee in order to start a discussion process for possible changes within ICANN, the main aim of which is to ensure community confidence in the organization as the Joint Project Agreement between ICANN and the United States government concludes in September 2009.

A timetable for that process will also be outlined, and a dedicated webpage launched to provide the community with all the information it needs, including regular updates as the process develops.

This public comment period will be one of two that act as the place to provide written input and feedback into the consultation (oral input will be possible at ICANN and other meetings). A summary and analysis of this comment period will be provided to the Committee carrying out the consultation (the President's Strategy Committee) in order to assist in revision and review of the documents above.
