ICANN : Extended Deadline: Request for Proposal for the Independent Review of the At-Large Community

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (“ICANN”) is seeking a provider to conduct an independent review of the At-Large Community (“At-Large”), as mandated by ICANN’s Bylaws. The At-Large serves an important function – it represents the community of individual Internet users who participate in the policy development work of ICANN.

As part of ICANN’s ongoing commitment to its evolution and improvement, Article IV – Section 4 of ICANN’s Bylaws contains provisions for “periodic review of the performance and operation of each Supporting Organization, each Supporting Organization Council, each Advisory Committee (other than the Governmental Advisory Committee), and the Nominating Committee.”

These periodic reviews present ICANN structures with opportunities for continuous improvement through consistent application of compliance review principles to objectively measure performance relative to specific and quantifiable criteria developed by ICANN based on the unique nature of its structures. The resulting implementation of improvements and the systematic means of measuring performance and validating effectiveness of implementation are of utmost importance to the ongoing legitimacy of ICANN.

The objective of this Request for Proposal (RFP) is to identify an independent examiner to assess effectiveness of: (1) improvements resulting from recommendations from the previous Review, (2) components of the At-Large Community – ALAC, Regional At-Large Organizations (RALOs) and At-Large Structures (ALSes) in accordance with the ICANN-provided objective and quantifiable criteria. The Review is scheduled to take place from April 2016 through March 2017.

For a complete timeline, additional information and instructions for submitting responses please see https://www.icann.org/en/system/files/files/rfp-atlarge-review-21jan16-en.zip [ZIP, 972 KB].

Proposals should be submitted to AtLargeReview-rfp@icann.org by 07:59 UTC on 28 January 2016.
