Following the end of this public comment proceeding, we will hold calls with the community. These calls are an opportunity for the community to present their written comments on the Draft PTI FY18 Operating Plan and Budget. This process is intended to enhance understanding of the comments and to improve the quality of the response. All calls will be public, focused on the organization that submitted comments, and attended by at least one PTI Board member. Additional PTI and ICANN Board members may attend based on availability.
The staff and PTI Board members attending will primarily listen and ask clarifying questions. Responses to public comments will not be provided during these calls, unless the comments are factual with a very specific and simple answer.
The schedule for these calls, along with dial-in information, is published on the ICANN Community Wiki Finance Workspace.
After holding calls with the community, a report on the comments received will be prepared. After incorporating changes based on suggestions and comments, the PTI Board will be invited to adopt the Plan in January 2017.
