Hi all,

Thanks Farzaneh for the welcome. I would propose that Sam take lead on the
FC role because I have a couple of clarity seeking questions and still need
some onboarding to enable effectiveness and understanding of the following
factors relating to this new role, particularly:

-          Breakdown of expenses and income received in the past 2 - 4
years (As per the ICANN 5 year operational budget and budget requests) by
NCSG/GNSO and constituencies and how it was used

-          Breakdown of GNSO annual allocation vs allocation to other AC's
and SO's

-          Database of NCSG member organisations (including those who have
contributed in yesteryear)

-          Understanding of priorities, plans and requests from NCSG and
member constituencies

-          Assessment of impact in regard to funds disbursed: NCSG, NCUC
and NCOP

-          Capacity building/On-boarding of FC by NPOC member, previous FC
reps and other observers of the FC

-          List of contact people and finance staff within ICANN to work

-          Review of current or setup of effective financial internal
controls systems for the NCSG

-          Scheduling of a F2F meeting with finance and leadership
committees of the GNSO, SG’s and C

-          Assessment of budget requests submitted and approved by NCSG
constituencies Vs CSG constituencies

-      Financial reports of NCSG and constituencies in the past 3 years (if
available on the Wiki page, please share link)

I have gone through the NCSG charter and it is clear in terms of what need
to transpire, I have also started investigating budget requests and the
2018FY ICANN Operational plan and budget to understand the financial
situation of NCSG and opportunities for raising funds. Should it be a
challenge for Sam to take lead, then I do not mind helping out but will
need to obtain support from other FC observers, members and representatives
in order to fulfill duties assigned to the NCSG FC according to the
charter, thanks.

Thato Mfikwe.
