 Public Comments Opens Today: Questions to the Community on Accountability
and Transparency within ICANN

18 May 2010

*Explanation/Background:* In the Affirmation of Commitments (AoC), ICANN
commits to maintain and improve robust mechanisms for public input,
accountability and transparency so as to ensure that the outcomes of its
decision-making will reflect the public interest and be accountable to all
stakeholders. The AoC Accountability and Transparency Review Team (ATRT) is
in the process of analyzing stakeholder and community input that has been
submitted on these topics prior to the AoC (i.e. comments on Improving
Institutional Confidence, submissions to the NTIA NOI on expiration of the
JPA, etc.). However, the ATRT would also like to understand if there are new
inputs or changes in stakeholder views since the establishment of the AoC.

*The Initial Questions from the ATRT* can be found here:

The Accountability and Transparency Review Team web space with other
reference materials can be found here:

*The Process Going Forward:*

At the end of this Public Comment period, the ATRT will review the comments
submitted and prepare a summary analysis of the various submissions. The
ATRT will use them as both benchmarking of post AoC community view and to
inform the specific methodologies and processes the ATRT will be conducting
between now and December 2010.

*Deadline and How to Submit Comments:*

The ATRT is opening a 45-day public comment, from 18th May through 1 July
2010, and invites community comments and responses to these questions.

The formal Public Comment Forum Box is located here:
