Dear All,

The FY18 Additional Budget Request process has started.  This process pertains to a dedicated part of the overall ICANN annual budget that is set aside to fund specific requests from the community for activities that are not already included in the recurring ICANN budget. FY18 Additional Budget Requests cover the period 1 July 2017 through 30 June 2018.

The relevant information is available on the At-Large FY18 Budget Development Workspace[community.icann.org]<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__community.icann.org_display_atlarge_At-2DLarge-2BFY18-2BBudget-2BDevelopment-2BWorkspace&d=DgMFAw&c=FmY1u3PJp6wrcrwll3mSVzgfkbPSS6sJms7xcl4I5cM&r=ds9md1zoepmwqw2nfk-Vs9ssxn1I3jPs97ekKkctEkM&m=zHtOrpDZgpDO1AvUv5HgJvFMRfcYReaDu6LOZ10kZo4&s=vz0aIyc_mwz4pmOcprhGLmE6ePTEFlpkQwo8UVjMepE&e=>, including the key deadlines, details of the process, principles and the request template.

 IMPORTANT: In 2016, the members of the ALAC Finance and Budget Sub-Committee (FBSC) agreed to the following criteria for At-Large proposals:

  *   Outreach should not be a major focus. Activities to improve engagement with existing members is encouraged.
  *   If any request is made on outreach, it should probably go through the CROPP program and not this special request process.
  *   Proposals should include ways in which will make the ALAC and/or the At-Large community more effective and develop the At-Large community.
  *   RALO requests must go through a bottom up process within their RALO prior to being submitted for consideration by the FBSC.
  *   RALOs should consider the General Assembly/Summit timeline (APRALO is scheduled for a General Assembly in FY18)
  *   They must be explicitly supported by the RALO representatives on the FBSC.
  *   Staff is currently expecting that basic resources for community communications/printing will be supported through the core ICANN budget, but that community proposals for printing , etc. will be accepted as a back-up in case expectations change.  Specific proposals for communications resources beyond simple printing and editing functions should be prepared and submitted.
 IMPORTANT:  Between now and 16 January 2017 the RALOs are asked to review any ALS request or complete a template on behalf of the RALO and send requests to At-Large Staff<mailto:staff at atlarge.icann.org>.

Kind regards,
