07-Jun-2018 | Source : ICANN | Visits : 4094
LOS ANGELES – Analysis Group, the independent examiner performing the second ICANN Nominating Committee (NomCom) Review, published its final report.

According to ICANN, the final report includes an assessment of the NomCom and 27 recommendations for improving its operations.

Analysis Group presented its findings and resulting recommendations for improvement in three categories:

Composition and Responsibilities of the NomCom Members
Processes of the NomCom
Additional Topics
The final report published considers comments on the draft final report published on March 27, 2018, input provided during the public webinar on April 10, 2018 and any other feedback Analysis Group may have received.

Next Steps

The NomCom Review Working Party (RWP) will prepare a feasibility assessment and initial implementation plan (FAIIP) based on the final report. This will include an analysis of recommendations in the final report for usability and prioritization, provisional budget implications, anticipated resources and the proposed implementation timeline.
Analysis Group and the RWP respectively will then present the final report and the FAIIP to the ICANN Board's Organizational Effectiveness Committee (OEC). The OEC will make a recommendation to the Board on next steps.
An independent review of the NomCom is mandated by ICANN's Bylaws and is part of ICANN's commitment to its own evolution and improvement, accountability and transparency. Analysis Group was selected to perform the review and began its work in June 2017.

The purpose of the NomCom review is to determine (i) whether the NomCom has a continuing purpose in the ICANN structure, (ii) if so, whether any change in structure or operations is desirable to improve its effectiveness and (iii) whether the NomCom is accountable to its constituencies, stakeholder groups, organizations and other stakeholders. The review also assesses whether the improvements resulting from the last review (2007-2010) were effective.
