ALAC Statement on FY 10 Operating Plan and Budget Framework
The following statement has been transmitted to the public consultation on ICANN’s Budget and Operating Plan FY 10 Framework.
We have been requested by the Chair of the At-Large Advisory Committee to transmit the input for the public consultation on the Proposed Framework for ICANN's FY10 Operating Plan and Budget on behalf of the ALAC.
The attached Statement was originally drafted by ALAC Member Gareth Shearman, as agreed during the April 28th 2009 meeting of the At-Large Advisory Committee and following a presentation on the Proposed Framework for ICANN's FY10 Operating Plan and Budget given by ICANN Chief Financial Officer Kevin Wilson to the At-Large community. It was then published for review by the ALAC 5th May 2009. The original version was posted to the At-Large Advisory Committee internal list on 30th April 2009 and may be reviewed under: https://st.icann.org/alac-docs/index.cgi?al_alac_st_0509_1. Due to the timelines built into the Budget Development process, it was understood that the statement would not be able to undergo the full, At-Large community-wide consultation as doing so would prevent the comments of the ALAC from being taken into account by ICANN’s Finance Department as it completes work on its Draft Budget and Operational Plan for Financial Year 09/10.
The Chair of the ALAC then requested the Staff to open a vote on the document, said vote opening on 7th May and closing on 12th May.
The results were announced on 13th May by the Staff, the result being that the Statement was endorsed by a vote of 11-0-0.
