Dear All,

For your information, the GNSO Council resolved at its last meeting to 
terminate the Policy Process Steering Committee (PPSC) and modify the PDP-WT 
Charter from 'the Policy Development Process Team shall be responsible for 
making recommendations concerning the development of and transition to a new 
PDP for PPSC review' to 'the Policy Development Process Team shall be 
responsible for making recommendations concerning the development of and 
transition to a new PDP for the GNSO Council's review'. You can find the 
complete resolution below.

With best regards,

Marika


Motion to terminate the Policy Process Steering Committee

WHEREAS, in October 2008, the GNSO Council established a framework (see GNSO 
Council Improvement Implementation Plan;

(http://www.icann.org/en/topics/gnso-improvements/gnso-improvements-implementation-plan-16oct08.pdf)
 for implementing the various GNSO Improvements identified and approved by the 
ICANN Board of Directors on 26 June 2008

(http://www.icann.org/en/minutes/resolutions-26jun08.htm#_Toc76113182)

(http://www.icann.org/en/minutes/resolutions-26jun08.htm);

WHEREAS, that framework included the formation, in January 2009, of two 
Steering Committees, the Operations Steering Committee (OSC) and the Policy 
Process Steering Committee (PPSC), to charter and coordinate the efforts of 
five community work teams in developing specific recommendations to implement 
the improvements;

WHEREAS, the PPSC established two work teams, including the Working Group Work 
Team (WG WT), which was chartered to develop a new GNSO Working Group Model 
that improves inclusiveness, improves effectiveness, and improves efficiency, 
and the Policy Development Process Work Team (PDP WT), which was chartered to 
make recommendations concerning the development of and transition to a new PDP;

WHEREAS the WG WT has already completed its tasks;

WHEREAS the PDP WT has worked diligently to develop the proposed new GNSO 
Policy Development Process and expects to deliver a final report soon;

WHEREAS submitting the PDP-WT report to the PPSC would add additional delay to 
the completion and approval of the new GNSO PDP;

WHEREAS a Standing Committee for Improvement Implementation (SCI) has been 
created and will be responsible for reviewing and assessing the effective 
functioning of recommendations provided by the Operational Steering Committee 
(OSC) and Policy Process Steering Committee (PPSC).

NOW THEREFORE, BE IT:

RESOLVED, the GNSO Council hereby terminates the Policy Process Steering 
Committee (PPSC) and expresses its gratitude and appreciation to the PPSC for 
their dedication and commitment.

RESOLVED, the GNSO Council requests the Charter of the PDP-WT to be updated 
from 'the Policy Development Process Team shall be responsible for making 
recommendations concerning the development of and transition to a new PDP for 
PPSC review' to 'the Policy Development Process Team shall be responsible for 
making recommendations concerning the development of and transition to a new 
PDP for the GNSO Council's review'.

RESOLVED FURTHER, the GNSO Council hereby instructs the SCI to amend its 
charter approved by the GNSO Council on April 7, 2011 (see 
http://gnso.icann.org/resolutions/#201104) to include "recommendations provided 
by the PDP-WT as approved by the GNSO Council" in addition to those recommended 
by the OSC and PPSC as approved by the GNSO Council.
