    a budget that differs in many ways = BIGGER
    by Anonymous on Friday May 14 2004, @10:56PM (#13589)
    STAFF SUPPORT
    Regarding the hiring of staff support, Bruce reported that ICANN will hire a
    GNSO Policy Officer in August. While this is true, I believe that it was not
    made clear that this position is in addition to the existing position of
    GNSO Staff Manager. While Barbara will be stepping out of that role, she
    will continue in the staff manager position until a replacement is found.
    That search is underway. As manager of the budget, I will coordinate with
    Paul Verhoef so that we can begin the search for the Policy Officer position
    earlier so that the new position can be filled coincident with the adoption
    of the new budget.

    Paul Twomey, Paul Verhoef and I are in active discussion to ensure better
    support of the GNSO process - it is a top priority for us.

    ICANN BUDGET
    During the call, the proposed ICANN budget was also discussed. Concern was
    voiced that some of the appropriate reviews had not yet occurred. In
    accordance with the original plan, ICANN will consult with the Budget
    Advisory Group and others prior to the posting of the budget.

    During the time since the Rome meeting, Paul Twomey and I have been (and
    are) in extensive consultations with many constituency members, discussing
    alternative funding and spending proposals. Through that process, we have
    learned much about the business models of different stakeholders. ICANN's
    evolving revenue model is an attempt to better match revenue sources to
    spending beneficiaries, develop predictable fees for various stakeholders
    over a longer period, and develop new sources of revenue. The result of this
    work is a budget that differs in many ways from those in past years. The
    budget will enable significant improvements in staff support for the GNSO as
    well as other ICANN undertakings.
