Development of the Operational Design Phase Process
The Operational Design Phase (ODP) was developed over six months through an iterative drafting process that included ICANN community input and consultation throughout.
The first version of the ODP concept paper was shared with the ICANN community on 9 October 2020 and received written input from five ICANN community groups.
