Indeed, I do think that we need to open the a second round since we have
time for it. The most important thing is to inform the RALOs as soon as
possible so that they will prepare their requests on time for the
sub-committee to approve and send to the controller.

Objet : [Finance-sc] Fast track vs. normal track requests


Dear members of the Finance & Budget sub-committee,



a recent discussion with one of the RALO leaderships made it appear that

they were really rushed to go through their internal processes to

approve requests. Perhaps it was a lack of communication from members of

the FBSC to their region, perhaps it was just the fact that we had less

than one month to put together the budget requests.


As you'll note on the ICANN Finance WIKI, there are actually two deadlines:









          Early vote/decision by April => submit by 3/22/2013





          Vote/decision by June => submit by 4/29/2013



In order to save ourselves from needed to frantically work immediately

after the ICANN meeting in April, the request from RALOs to send their

requests was aligned with the fast track. This put pressure on them to

get their proposals done fast - but some might have forgotten about

requests which would not need a fast track.


As a result, I am asking you, members of the FBSC, whether we should

open a new round of RALO requests, if they wish to add any request that

would take place from November 2013 onwards -- hence using the "Normal



If this is the case, then Gisella has already prepared a placeholder for

a call on 22 April 2013 - and we *could* use this call to:

1. follow-up on any follow-up requests from Finance on our initial round

2. discuss the second round of requests


Any suggestions?


Kind regards,
