ICANN picks Analysis Group to review NomCom

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has appointed Analysis Group to conduct an independent review of the ICANN Nominating Committee (NomCom), reports ITRealms.

This review, ITRealms gathered is mandated by its Bylaws, as part of ICANN's commitment to its own evolution and improvement, accountability and transparency.

ITRealms reports that the review which begins immediately is expected to conclude in 2018.

Also, ITRealms reports that the selection of an independent examiner followed ICANN's rigorous procurement process, which includes independent evaluation of submissions, presentations by the highest scoring proposals, follow-up interviews, and reference checks.

A press statement from ICANN confirmed that this process was led by the ICANN organization and validated by the Board's Organizational Effectiveness Committee, which is responsible for overseeing ICANN's Organizational Reviews process.

In addition, ITRealms reports that the selection criteria for the independent examiner was developed in collaboration with the NomCom Review Working Party.

“The criteria emphasized expertise in talent acquisition, board selection procedure and experience in the not-for-profit sector. In addition, criteria such as understanding of the assignment, proposed methodology, knowledge of ICANN and the independence of the proposed review team were assessed,” officials told ITRealms.

ICANN, therefore invited former and current candidate who applied for selection by the NomCom, current and former NomCom appointee as well as former and current member of the NomCom to take active interest in the review.

The Analysis Group is led by Dr. Greg Rafert
