FYI. Please review.
I am somehow unhappy about the ICANN Academy being transformed into
"Leadership Training" and tagged under "At-Large" when this is now a
cross-community effort with a cross-community WG in place.

IMHO this document does not shed much light on how to proceed forward
with our APRALO & AFRALO IGF workshops, nor the ICANN Academy.

Kind regards,

Dear Community Leaders,


As you know, the Board approved the Fiscal Year 2013 (FY13) Budget and
Operating Plan on 23 June in Prague. 

The treatment of the various SO and AC Budget requests was reflected in
the FY13 Adopted Budget posted on the ICANN Finance webpage last
month (see -
This communication is intended to clarify what has been approved and
what staff will be implementing (in most cases with you) over the next
11 months.


As presented in Appendix A of the FY13 budget document, not all
individual SO and AC requests could be funded as proposed. 

To account for the wide variety of proposal types and to accommodate as
many requests as possible, the individual requests have been combined by
common subject matter, issues or activities into one of 7 “Notes” that
explain the approved and funded project work. It is within these
combined Notes that your approved request will be implemented.


Attached please find an overall summary of each of the resourced
projects, which now identifies the ICANN staff member who has been
designated to coordinate each of the approved activities. 

If you have not already been contacted, expect to hear soon from each
staffmember about how they intend to coordinate with you to implement
each activity successfully.


The Finance Team will coordinate with each staff implementer to assure
that resources are correctly tracked and managed throughout the life of
each activity so that we collectively can assess the success of each
effort that is undertaken this fiscal year. We would like to continually
refine and improve this process on a go-forward basis.


Many thanks to all of you who have worked with us to move this effort
forward.  It has been a learning experience we hope to build on with
you, together, in future budgeting efforts.
