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.

Operating Plan and Budget 2009

Open: 17 May 08
Closed: 17 June 08

Explanation:The draft Operating Plan and Budget for the 2009 financial year has been released for public comment.

As a result of the Strategic Plan, from which the Operating Plan is developed and which then leads through to the Budget, there is a call for substantial expense growth for ICANN.

This public comment period is intended to inform the community and provide active community and Board feedback on the proposed objectives and plans. This feedback will be taken into account in arriving at a final plan, which then establishes the resources and objectives for the ICANN community over the next year.

For more information on the process run through by the community to arrive at the Operating Plan and Budget, please review the official announcement of this comment period.
