While it is helpful to see the budget broken into various initiatives, but it may be illuminating to see other views into the budget that thwould also help the community gauge whether ICANN is being efficient with the funding provided by the community:

1. Staff vs. non-staff expenses
2. Direct staff costs (salaries, bonuses, etc.) and non-direct staff costs (travel, furnishings, computers, etc.)
3. Technical-mission costs vs. policy-mission costs
4. Reimbursed staff expenses, by year (an average amount per staff member would be useful)
5. Number of consultants hired, and consultancy costs, by year
6. Number of miles flown by staff, by year

And so on... the initiatives are an excellent view of the aspirations of ICANN, but the budget is rather opaque when it comes to judging whether ICANN is being efficient in its use of the monies contributed by the community.

With thanks,

Antony Van Couvering
