Updated New gTLD Budget Published
22 October 2010
The New gTLD Budget is a critical component of the program and has been recently updated following public comment and additional analysis. Taking that into account, the Board approved the budget at its most recent meeting (http://www.icann.org/en/minutes/resolutions-25sep10-en.htm#1).
The document is an analysis of the New gTLD program costs, including an assessment of the timing required to complete certain remaining activities necessary for operational readiness. To ensure costs are appropriately managed, tracked and disclosed, the gTLD budget has been organized according to three phases: 1) Development; 2) Deployment; and 3) Application Processing. You can see the updated budget here: http://www.icann.org/en/topics/new-gtlds/explanatory-memo-new-gtld-program-budget-22oct10-en.pdf [PDF, 456 KB]
The proposed budget was originally posted for public comment on 31 May 2010. Only four comments were received but other comments, received during the general Guidebook comment process were also taken into account. Staff's Summary & Analysis of these comments can be found here: http://www.icann.org/en/public-comment/summary-comments-new-gtld-program-budget-22oct10-en.pdf [PDF, 108 KB].
The main change from the original proposed budget is the deployment costs which increased from US$2.6 million to US$4 million. Two major additions include funds for non-financial support of applicants as recommended by the Applicant Support working group and funding for root zone stability efforts. The snapshot from the Applicant Support Working Group can be found here: http://www.icann.org/en/public-comment/#wg-snapshot. The Final Milestone recommendation from the group should be available soon.
