Dear All,

ICANN is developing an Operational Plan and Budget for Fiscal Year 2013 to
accomplish the goals and priorities of ICANN's Strategic Plan for 2012-2015
(draft version at
03oct11-en.pdf ).

In preparation for this, ICANN's Finance Team has asked the ALAC to submit
project requests to be budgeted in ICANN's Draft Operational Plan and Budget
for Fiscal Year 2013 by 20 January 2012, giving consideration to the number
of requests and to the priority of the requests.

In turn, ALAC's Finance and Budget Sub-Committee (FBSC;
https://community.icann.org/x/n4XT ) has requested that RALOs submit their
FY13 project requests for consideration by the committee by 10 January 2012.
The Sub-committee would appreciate that each RALO indicate its top three
projects, should more than three be submitted.

As requested by ICANN's Finance Team, all FY13 project suggestions must use
a template which can be found on the At-Large Fiscal Year 2013 Budget
Development Workspace at https://community.icann.org/x/yofbAQ . The form
asks RALOs to describe in detail the actual scope of the activity being
proposed, how it relates to the current Strategic Plan, and how the funds
are to be implemented.

RALOs may wish to review last year's ALAC's FY12 Budget proposals at

ALAC's FBSC will be reviewing the RALO submissions in an attempt to
prioritize requests for submission to ICANN Finance in time by 20 January

It is important to note that ONLY projects showing positive impact to
ICANN's Strategic Plan 2012-2015 or to ICANN Policy Development will likely
be approved. Also, please note that all project submissions sent by the ALAC
will be included in ICANN's 2013 Draft Operational Plan and Budget and
published for public comment.

FY13 Budget requests may be either posted directly on the At-Large Fiscal
Year 2013 Budget Development Workspace or sent to At-Large staff at:
staff at atlarge.icann.org

Kind regards,

Heidi Ullrich, Silvia Vivanco, Matt Ashtiani, Gisella Gruber, and Nathalie
