GNSO Communications and Coordination Work Team (CCT) Final Consolidated Recommendations

Open: 23 April 2010
Closed: 16 May 2010

Explanation/Background: This report is the product of a cross-constituency Communications and Coordination Work Team (CCT) that was chartered by the GNSO's Operations Steering Committee (OSC) in March 2009 to review and recommend implementation proposals concerning certain sections of the Board's GNSO Improvements Report (3 February 2008) including:

  • Developing new GNSO website requirements including document management and collaboration tools;
  • Improving the GNSO's ability to solicit meaningful feedback; and
  • Improving the GNSO's coordination with other ICANN structures.

The recommendations are part of the overall GNSO Improvements effort and are designed to help the GNSO Council and the GNSO Constituencies and Stakeholder Groups improve communications, cooperation and coordination among themselves and with other ICANN structures.

The CCT's Final Consolidated Recommendations report was approved by the OSC and forwarded to the Council effective 9 April 2010.
