ICANN Staff Issues Report is Now 1 Month Overdue

On 13 January the GNSO Council started a Policy Development Process (PDP) by formally requesting a Staff Issues Report. The ICANN bylaws require completion of such a report by ICANN staff within 15 days. It is now one month past the due date, and still no report. Staff performance is pathetic -- it's time for Twomey to kick some Staff butt.

The formal Council request: "Whereas the high demand amongst registrars to register specific domain names that become available for re-registration at the registry has lead to unforeseen impact and strains on the registration infrastructure of gTLD registries and registrars. Whereas this affects the service level that registrars can provide to their customers and the meaning of ICANN accredited as it applies to registrars, Council resolves, to request the ICANN staff manager to write an issues report (as specified in annex A to the ICANN by-laws) on the "Problems caused by contention for domain names made available by a gTLD registry ", so that Council can subsequently decide if a policy development process would be appropriate."

The Bylaws: Creation of the Issue Report --

"Within fifteen (15) calendar days after receiving either (i) an instruction from the Board; (ii) a properly supported motion from a Council member; or (iii) a properly supported motion from an Advisory Committee, the Staff Manager will create a report (an "Issue Report")."
