Explanation/Background: ICANN continues its work to conduct bylaw mandated organizational reviews to provide for continual improvement in its technical coordination and policy development support roles.

The draft report was received by the ICANN Board's Structural Improvements Committee (SIC) and released for consultation and public comment on 23 October 2010. Comments received were taken into account by the independent external reviewers and incorporated into JAS Communications LLC's final report.

The independent external reviewers now issue their final report [PDF, 452 KB] for public comment. The community is invited to participate in this comment forum by 24 January 2010 and to provide input on the final report via The final report shall then be considered by the SIC and subsequently submitted to the ICANN Board for consideration.
