GNSO Travel Support Principles
       Here is my first contribution.  I think our group would do well to put 
forth some basic *principles* for GNSO Travel support that we all agree on.  
Below is a start toward that end.  We might also want to add some words 
clairfying the *purpose* of travel support (may be someone else would like to 
take a crack at that).  I have put "TBD" (to be determined) in places that will 
be affected by our requested clarification of constituencies vs. stakeholder 
Allocation and Control
The total GNSO Travel support budget (less the amount allotted to the NCAs and 
GNSO Council chair) should be divided on an equal basis among the GNSO 
constituencies or stakeholder groups (TBD).
The use of travel support funds is to be solely determined by each constituency 
or stakeholder group (TBD) independently as it sees fit to most effectively 
progress the work of the GNSO.  This will require flexibility in the use of 
travel support funds.  For example, an attendee may receive partial support 
(e.g. just airfare) or full support at the discretion of his/her sending 
group.  Also, a sending group may use the funds in different ways for different 
ICANN meetings throughout the year (e.g. send more or fewer people) as long as 
its total budget for the fiscal year is not exceeded.
The GNSO Council has no role in deciding how these funds are allocated to 
Transparency and Reporting
The names of all who receive travel support must be made known publicly.  What 
is covered for each (e.g. air fare, accommodations, per diem - not the dollar 
amounts) must also be made public.
Everyone who is supported must make known (e.g. in a report) publicly the dates 
of travel, accommodations (which hotel) and meetings attended and/or work 
accomplished.  Note:  I think this should take less than a page to describe.
