Resolution of the ICANN Board
Redelegation of .GA

Board approves the redelegation of .GA

Meeting Date: 
Thu, 11 Apr 2013
Resolution Number: 
Resolution Text: 
Resolved (2013.04.11.08), ICANN has reviewed and evaluated the request, and the documentation demonstrates the process was followed and the redelegation is in the interests of the local and global Internet communities.
Rationale for Resolution: 
As part of the IANA Functions, ICANN receives request to delegate and redelegate country-code top-level domains. ICANN Staff has reviewed and evaluated a redelegation request for this domain and has provided a report to the ICANN Board that proper procedures were followed in that evaluation. The Board’s oversight of the process helps ensure ICANN is properly executing its responsibilities relating to the stable and secure operation of critical unique identifier systems on the Internet and pursuant to the IANA Functions Contract. Ensuring that the process is followed adds to the accountability of ICANN. This action will have no fiscal impact on ICANN or the community, and will have a positive impact on the security, stability and resiliency of the domain name system. This is an Organizational Administrative Function not requiring public comment.
