Dear Rudi, Anne, and SCI members,
At its meeting on 21 July the GNSO Council passed a motion 
(https://community.icann.org/x/BAObAw) that creates and charters a new GNSO 
Review Working Group. 
In this motion the GNSO Council also directs the Standing Committee on 
Improvements Implementation (SCI) to complete the two tasks assigned to it by 
the GNSO Council (see further below).  The motion notes that upon completion of 
these tasks, any new requests will revert to the GNSO Review Working Group for 
consideration. In addition, per the motion, following the completion of these 
two tasks the SCI will be disbanded as its work will have been superseded by 
the GNSO Review Working Group.
As noted recently by staff, a Public Forum has been opened on the two current 
SCI tasks regarding proposed revisions to the GNSO Operating Procedures.  It 
will close on 14 August, following which staff will produce a report on 
comments received, if any.   The SCI then will finalize the proposed revisions 
and submit them for approval by the GNSO Council along with a motion on 22 
August for Council consideration at its meeting on 01 September.  Upon Council 
approval the revised GNSO Operating Procedures will be published and the SCI’s 
work will be completed.
Staff have sent out a Call for Volunteers for the GNSO Review Working Group 
earlier today. I will forward this Call for Volunteers in a separate email. SCI 
members are encouraged to consider volunteering to participate in this Working 
Group.  Per the Charter, the GNSO Working Group is responsible for developing 
an implementation plan for submission to the Board by end-December 2016, 
containing a realistic timeline for the implementation, definition of desired 
outcomes and a way to measure current state as well as progress toward the 
desired outcome for the GNSO Review recommendations adopted by the ICANN Board. 
 The Charter also notes that the GNSO Review Working Group will be responsible 
for considering any new requests by the GNSO Council concerning issues related 
to the GNSO Council processes and procedures and to Working Group guidelines.
It has been a pleasure to work with the SCI as Council Liaison and I look 
forward to helping to complete our final tasks.
