The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) invites the community to join one of two public webinars to discuss planning for the fiscal year 2023 (FY23) Operating Plan and Budget (OP&B) for delivering the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) functions. The webinar will explain the planning process, the proposed operational priorities for FY23, timelines, and key assumptions. ICANN welcomes the community's questions and comments.

The annual OP&B for the IANA functions has two components: a budget and operating plan for Public Technical Identifiers (PTI), the ICANN affiliate that performs the IANA functions, which outlines the planned activities and resources to deliver the core IANA functions. The second component includes the PTI budget plus additional programs and costs that the ICANN organization incurs overseeing and enabling the IANA functions.

In addition to the webinars, the community has further opportunity to participate in this planning process. The draft plans will be put out for Public Comment in September before being considered for formal adoption in late 2021.


ICANN's mission is to help ensure a stable, secure, and unified global Internet. To reach another person on the Internet, you need to type an address – a name or a number – into your computer or other device. That address must be unique so computers know where to find each other. ICANN helps coordinate and support these unique identifiers across the world. ICANN was formed in 1998 as a nonprofit public benefit corporation with a community of participants from all over the world.
