Rationale for Resolutions 2017.12.13.02 – 2017.12.13.06

The resolutions taken here today fulfill ICANN’s responsibility, as the sole member of PTI, to elect the President of PTI & appoint Directors to the Board, completing the initial terms required for the first year following the IANA stewardship transition. The appointment of the PTI Board (including the PTI President) will allow the PTI Board to continue its work. The new PTI President will begin in his role on 1 January 2018.

The appointment of the PTI President & Board are taken fully in line with the obligations as set forth in the PTI Bylaws, and respectful of the community’s recommendations of the proposed composition of the Board.

These actions confirm ICANN’s continued commitment to its Bylaws as adopted on 1 October 2016 & ICANN’s obligations surrounding the performance of the IANA Functions that are contracted to PTI. This also directly serves ICANN’s mission to ensure the stable and secure operations of the Internet’s unique identifiers, & serves the public interest in the continued stable performance of the IANA Functions.

None of the actions taken today are anticipated to have any impact on the security, stability or resiliency of the DNS, though PTI is essential to ICANN’s security, stability & resiliency work. There are resource implications in supporting PTI, which are reflected in the PTI, IANA & ICANN Budgets.

The appointment of the PTI President & the appointment of the PTI Board are Organizational Administrative Functions for which public comments were not necessary.
