Can the request be in two parts? We shouldn't have to copy everyone with
bank details, correct?

I think we must forward this request to the GNSO council asap, if you
agree I can do it.

Dear GNSO Travel Team:
I understand that the GNSO approved the release of the $19,963.79 DNSO
restricted funds to support the travel costs for members of the six GNSO
constituencies. In order to execute the release of these funds, I will
need a clear request from each constituency of the exact amount and
payment instructions (e.g., name of payee, account #’s, currency, date
of transfer). In the
request please include a reference to the GNSO resolution (copied below
for your reference) and copy the other contituencies. I assume I will
be getting 6 requests for US$ 3,3327.30. (19,964.79/6).
At its meeting of September 25, 2008 the GNSO Council created the
Travel Drafting Team (TDT) to work on proposals to optimize the
allocation and the management of Travel Funding for the GNSO
At a meeting held during the Mexico ICANN meeting in March 2009 between
the TDT and members of ICANN staff, the TDT requested that all GNSO
Constituencies receive Funding Slots for each of their elected
Councillors at each one of the three yearly international ICANN
meetings, with the understanding that it would then be up to each
Constituency to allocate these slots according to their own internal
That request stemmed in part from the recognition of the significant,
and ever increasing work loads, that GNSO Councillors face. Work which
they carry out as unpaid volunteers.
Since that meeting it has been identified that an amount of funds left
over from the DNSO are available for use should the Council wish to
provide additional Travel Funding to those GNSO Constituencies that no
longer have enough credits left for their three slots for the final
meeting of the fiscal year 2008, in Sydney.
The funds identified are in the amount of 19,963.79 USD.
That the DNSO funds be distributed evenly across all six GNSO
Constituencies in time for the Sydney meeting in June, with the express
purpose of providing additional Travel Funding for those persons
nominated by each Constituency as recipients to be of said Travel
