I have attempted to evaluate this report but I find it lacking in content.

For example:

- How were the KPI performance factors arrived at
- What other KPIs were considered and what were the reasons for not going with 

- Who did the evaluation  - were they independent or was this a self evaluation
- If independent, what was their Terms of Reference for the evaluation
- In terms of the response factors, how many allocations were there.

This report has less info than the basic WG report at ICANN.

In looking at the policies listed in 
http://www.icann.org/en/news/in-focus/global-addressing it seems a fair amount 
of information is collected. What has been collected?  It also seems that there 
are many announcements required.  What announcements have been made during the 
period being evaluated?  Why are these not reported in the performance 
evaluation or at least referenced.  Or was thee no data collected during this 
interval and not announcements made?  I just can't tell.

I think it is good that there needs to be a performance report, but it should 
contain enough information for someone to read it without needing to do a lot 
of background research to find the actual information that the performance 
indicators were based on.  Such a report should be self contained and should 
contain enough information for someone evaluating the evaluator to actually see 
details of the evaluation. As I would say if I was grading a student paper, 
please show your work!

It is nice to know ICANN/IANA was perfect but this report as it stands is 
relatively light and not very informative as to what they did that was perfect.

Thank you
