| Explanation:As part of its commitment to continuously improving transparency and accountability, ICANN commenced a process of consultation with the community on the development of a set of Management Operating Principles.
ICANN has a range of existing external legal and internal rule based accountabilities. Those accountabilities have never been outlined concisely and in collected form. For example, there has been no clear set of information disclosure principles, no clear participation framework, no clear translation framework and no organisational code of conduct. The draft principles and frameworks for accountability released on 23 June 2007 strive to achieve that purpose. They are presented in draft form for discussion and development with the community.
In considering these draft documents ICANN would like feedback on the following:
In answering the above, providing clear evidence to support assertions as well as identifying any organizations that have mechanisms beyond those that ICANN relies upon, will greatly assist in understanding what improvements can be made.
