The ICG chairs recently received a letter from Sec. Strickling  that included the following text:
"Accordingly, to assist us in our planning for the fall, I ask that the community provide us with an update on the status of the transition planning and the associated timeframes, including the community’s views as to how long it will take to finalize the transition plan and implement it after it is approved. We request that you and the three primary customer working groups provide us with your views before the end of June, which will give you the opportunity to discuss these issues with the multistakeholder community at the June ICANN meeting in Argentina. In providing this feedback, please keep in mind that the United States Government will need sufficient time to evaluate the proposal and that all work items identified either by the ICG and the CCWG-Accountability as prerequisites for the transition will need to be implemented prior to the ending of the contract.”
The ICG understands that the CCWG chairs received a similar letter.
The ICG is inquiring with the operational communities about how much time the communities believe they will need to complete their proposal development and implement the aspects of the transition proposal that the communities have identified as needing to be completed prior to the expiry of the NTIA contract (e.g., creation of new contracts, agreements, or entities) . The ICG expects ICANN to provide input directly to those communities as appropriate as they formulate their responses to us, but if there are time frames associated with internal ICANN processes or any other ICANN-specific implementation information that the ICANN Board thinks we should know in formulating our response to Sec. Strickling, we would appreciate if you could share that with us directly by June 9 at 23:59 UTC for consideration by the ICG. Should you have further thoughts to communicate to us later in June, that would be welcome as well.
Alissa, Patrik, and Mohamed
