Dear Karla, 


Thank you for sharing the Draft Community Members Representative (CMR)
document. Here are my comments (Red: to be removed, Bleu: to be added):

*       In the text, “CRM” is used instead of “CMR” several times.
*       As for the role of the CMR members

*       SARP Selection: …. Upon receipt of the statistical information of
the pool of potential SARP members candidates such as geography, experience
level, and background, CMR will provide feedback as to the makeup and
pre-selection of SARP. At this phase of the program, the identities of the
SARP candidates are not revealed to CMR. CMR has input on the selection
process design only, not and the actual pre-selection 
*       SARP training: The SARP members will be trained to ensure evaluation
process efficiency and consistency. During the development of training
materials, CMR will provide input to ICANN. The input starts from the
outlining of the training design to review of in-stage development, as well
as the final training product. During the training, the CMR members,
together with ICANN and the coordinator, will identify the SARP leadership
(SARP Chair and Team leaders). The composition of the SARP teams will follow
the training, and will be performed by the 3 parties (ICANN, CMR,

Dear all,


Please see attached a summary of the proposed Community role in relation to
the SARP and actual financial support request evaluations. Please let me
know if you have issues viewing the file.


Carlton, regarding your comments below, there are few things I will try to
clarify on Friday during our call.


Thank you and I look forward to talking to the JAS WG again after so long!


Kind regards,

Dear Karla:

Many thanks for this notice.  I do not have an objection to either date or
purpose of the meeting. 


When you share the list of SARP applicants, it'd be useful if At-Large
members - self or otherwise expressed - could be noted.


I'm also presuming that a formula for SARP Membership to Applicants for
financial assistance is already determined.  If so, it'd be very useful if
this is also circulated.


 Kind regards,

- Carlton

Dear Carlton and Rafik,


I hope this e-mail finds you well.


There was a meeting today with few JAS WG representatives (Rafik, Tijani,
Avri, Cintra, Alan), few board members (Chris, George, Sebastian) and staff
(Kurt, Karla, Dennis [Project Manager], Wendy) about the Support Applicant
Review Panel (SARP) and operations of the financial assistance evaluation.
One of the issues discussed was having an active role of community members
from the JAS WG in the final design of the SARP and evaluation process. 


It was proposed we hold a special JAS WG meeting on 20 April to explain to
the JAS WG the current vision and also reach an agreement on the JAS WG
individuals that will be involved in the final design and evaluation
process. Obviously, the selected individuals will be expected not to have
conflict of interest issues and be able to dedicate time to this. I will
work with the policy team to schedule the 20 April meeting, following the
same structure and time we had before. If there are any objections from
moving ahead with this plan, please let me know ASAP.



I am preparing some materials to share with the JAS WG that explains in more
details the plans and the role in the SARP design and evaluation process.
This will be sent to all soon.



Quick Program updates:

·         We are pleased to report we received 80 applications for the SARP.
Applicants come from different regions of the world and have a wide range of
backgrounds, including business, academic, diplomatic, etc.

·         We plan on selecting the SARP members and start training of all
involved in the evaluation end of April, beginning of May.

·         We do not have yet the final number of financial assistance
applicants and, as you know, the new gTLD application window has been
extended. We will announce the financial assistance applicants at the same
time we reveal all the data on the new gTLD applicants. The actual number of
financial assistance applicants will dictate the final number of SARP
members and community members needed for evaluation.



I look forward to meeting with you all on April 20th.


Kind regards,


Karla Valente
