Brief Overview:

On 1 March 2019, the ICANN Board took action on the Final
Recommendations produced by the Competition, Consumer Trust, and
Consumer Choice Review Team (CCT-RT) – see
https://www.icann.org/resources/board-material/resolutions-2019-03-01-en

and directed ICANN org to “develop and submit to the Board a plan
for the implementation of the accepted recommendations”.

The Board resolution called for the plan to be completed and
provided to the community for consideration no later than six
months after Board action. The
plan for implementation
provides an overview of implementation
activities to be undertaken, where possible, highlights
dependencies, and enumerates resources requirements (if any). It
sets out the approach for future implementation of the six CCT-RT
recommendations the Board resolved to accept and assembles
estimates that are directional for understanding.

Community input is requested to determine whether the path
suggested by ICANN org to implement the six Competition, Consumer
Trust, and Consumer Choice Review Team (CCT-RT) recommendations the
Board resolved to accept on 1 March 2019 is reasonable in the
context of the intent of CCT-RT. Additionally, community feedback
is invited on the next steps for accepted recommendations.

In exercising its fiduciary duty, the Board intends to consider
the proposed plan for implementation as well as community feedback
received on the proposed path forward and considerations specific
to each recommendation. Once the community input adequately
considered, the ICANN Board will direct ICANN org to produce a
detailed implementation plan that results in the implementation of
recommendations 1, 17, 21, 22, 30, 31, including any adjustments
the input received through the public comment proceeding may
potentially prompt. Further implementation details, including
resources availability, scheduling, will be supplemented with
specific details and budget plans once the implementation steps are
underway.
