CCWG-Accountability Engagement Session
An opportunity for substantive discussions and feedback between the community and those closely involved in the process about accountability, stress testing, global accountability standards, both Work Streams, etc.
The CCWG-Accountability is expected to deliver proposals that would enhance ICANN's accountability towards all stakeholders. The goal is for the transition proposal regarding the IANA functions to be communicated to NTIA in a timeframe which is consistent with the expiration date of the current IANA Functions Contract, which is set at 30th September 2015. The CCWG-Accountability will therefore work as expeditiously as possible to identify those mechanisms that must be in place or committed to before the IANA Stewardship Transition in light of the changing historical contractual relationship with the U.S. Government (Work Stream 1) and those mechanisms for which a timeline for implementation may extend beyond the IANA Stewardship Transition (Work Stream 2).
