ICANN Draft FY19 Operating Plan and Budget and Five-Year Operating Plan Update

Brief Overview

Purpose:

Focusing on ICANN‘s commitment to the multistakeholder model, ICANN‘s Draft FY19 Operating Plan and Budget and the current year update to the Five-Year Operating Plan are provided for community discussion and public comment. ICANN seeks structured feedback on the plans described in these documents. The documents incorporate improvements on previous years based on regular interaction with the ICANN community and reflect FY19’s planned accomplishments towards the Five-Year Strategic Plan, which was adopted by the ICANN Board in October 2014.

Current Status:

The draft documents provided for this proceeding have been prepared and published for public review and comment. They describe ICANN‘s plans for FY19 and a high-level overview of FY20, including the plans to be carried out by PTI and IANA. Consultations were conducted on PTI’s draft FY19 plans during summer and fall of 2017. A report of public comments on the FY19 PTI and IANA Operating Plan and Budget was published in December 2017. The updated PTI Operating Plan and Budget was adopted by the PTI Board on 9 January 2018. The sections of the plans relating to PTI are therefore already finalized and are included in these documents to provide a complete picture.
