New gTLD Program Budget

Open: 31 May 2010
Closed: 21 July 2010

Explanation/Background: The proposed New gTLD Program budget is an analysis of gTLD program costs, including an assessment of the general risk and the timing required to complete certain remaining activities necessary for operational readiness. To ensure costs are appropriately managed, tracked and disclosed, the gTLD budget has been organized according to three phases; 1) development, 2) deployment, and 3) application processing. This paper [PDF, 116 KB] (with June 1, 2010 revision) discusses the definition and timing of each phase as well as key activities to be accomplished.
