ICANN is seeking input from the community on an early draft of the Operating Plan and budget through a consultation session in [English, French, Spanish and Russian] (using simultaneous interpretation).
The Operating Plan is a very important document that sets out ICANN’s objectives for the July 2008 – June 2009 financial year. The budget sets out ICANN’s financial goals for the year based on the operating plan objectives.
ICANN is engaging with the community earlier than ever with a combined high level budget and operating plan. This is intended to provide a starting point for a focused community conversation to take place over the next four months during the budget creation and approval process. The draft Operating Plan and budget documents will be revised based on the feedback that is received and published for further community consultation in the coming months. It is hoped that a final version of the plan and the budget will be approved by the Board at their June meeting. For more information on the planning and budgeting process, see
The Operating Plan and budget affect all members of the community and ICANN encourages all to participate.
