Section I: Description and Explanation
Two documents are presented for community discussion and public comment: 1) the Draft PTI FY21 Operating Plan and Budget and 2) the Draft FY21 IANA Operating Plan and Budget ("IANA Budget"). These budgets have been presented in separate documents as they are adopted by different organizations at separate times.
The PTI Board will be asked to adopt the PTI Draft FY21 Operating Plan and Budget in December 2019. The ICANN Board will be asked to adopt the IANA Budget in January 2020.
The Empowered Community has a right over the IANA Budget. An overview of the Empowered Community's powers is published on the Empowered Community website.
Section II: Background
PTI was incorporated in August 2016, the second month of ICANN's FY17 budget. The PTI Board was seated during September 2016. It performs the work required to deliver the IANA Services through contracts with ICANN. Excellence in delivering the IANA Services is a key goal in ICANN's Strategic Plan and PTI is working to fulfill that goal.
