[At-Large] ICANN Accountability Mechanisms

For the record, I included the ICANN CEO on all of my communications with ICANN over the past month as well as the Ombudsman.

I am documenting the specific issues that have arisen and would love the opportunity to present them to the At-large if this is of interest.  And of course, if anyone has an opposing view, that would be very important to hear as well.

I actually raised this very issue, while we were working on the accountability framework. At the time, folks believed the power to throw out the board would suffice but clearly that is a tool of last resort.

Many people, myself included, raised the question of staff accountability - and also during successive ATRT sessions. And for reasons that are their own, others resisted this and thought everything hinged on the Board - how naive.

I recall responses separately made during the usual ALAC "grilling" sessions of the ICANN CEO at each iCANN meeting, of both successive CEOs, Fadi Chehadé and Göran Marby, and staff accountability was dealt with internally and that the CEO of ICANN is the warrantor of that accountability. Perhaps should you complain to the ICANN CEO about his organisation's alleged inability to take action in a reasonable time?

Kindest regards,
