Dear Alex:

The ICANN Board's Reconsideration Committee has made a recommendation on your reconsideration request submitted in November. The recommendation will be considered by the full Board at its next teleconference meeting. The recommendation will shortly be posted on the ICANN website.

Best regards,



Reconsideration Committee Recommendation for RR 00-7

In reconsideration request 00-7, D. Alexander Floum asks that the Board delete from ICANN's website "ICANN's November 9, 2000 characterization of IO Design's application", which we understand to mean the staff evaluation of Image Online Design's new TLD application.

The Reconsideration Committee recommends that the Board take no action in response to this request. Together with the team of expert independent evaluators, the staff produced a set of evaluations to assist the Board in its assessment of the new TLD applications. These evaluations were made public as part of the ICANN policy of openness and transparency.

In making its decisions, the Board considered the staff evaluations, as well as subsequent responses from applicants, including Image Online Design. It would be contrary to the ICANN process to delete the staff evaluation from the ICANN website.

[NOTE: Director Abril i Abril did not participate in the committee's consideration of Reconsideration Request 00-7.]
