I was referring to para 2.2 "Working Group Member Roles and Responsibilities"

For staff it says:

WG, namely secretariat (fundamentally a support function covering logistics)
and policy liaison (a support function providing WG assistance in a neutral
manner, including drafting, if required, which should reflect faithfully the
deliberations of the Working Group). In addition, ICANN Staff may perform the
following distinct roles for a WG as requested and appropriate: .......
The SOI/DOI procedures should be consistent with this description.

Dear Ray and Work Team members,
Here are the texts that relate to staff roles as discussed today. The Chair
of the PPSC Working Group Work Team is J. Scott Evans. I will produce notes
from this call as well as action items, that I will send out not later than
GNSO Working Group Guidelines
6.1.4 Other Important Roles
· ICANN Staff – the following distinct Staff roles may be assigned to a
o Expertise (technical, legal, economic, etc.)
o Secretariat (fundamentally a support function covering both logistics and
drafting assistance in a neutral manner reflecting faithfully the
deliberations of the Working Group)
o Operational/Implementation (facilitation with the framework of existing
policies and rules)
* Scoping (for policy matters, internal role of the General Counsel, but
possibly distinct, guaranteeing respect of the procedures and competencies of
the different structures)
ICANN staff assigned to support a GNSO Group are expected to work in the
interests of ICANN and the broader interests of the Internet community and not
for any other purpose or interests. ICANN staff are therefore exempted from
providing separate Statements of Interest as defined in Paragraph 5.1.
