ICANN 2010 BUDGET- Follow the Money...

Reading into this they are still planning for both new gtld's and some idn.idn releases in 2009, with continuation into 2010. On the IDN launches, "Some of the FY09 expense will be underrun, and deferred into FY10".

http://www.icann.org/en/planning/ops...work-10-en.pdf

FY 2010 Operating Plan Framework
The work plan called for in the FY10 Operating Plan and Budget is once again a challenging undertaking, with the launching of New gTLDs, IDN ccTLD fast track, and increasing Security Initiatives. The organizational activities to be performed in FY10, and the required resources, is summarized in the following table:

1. New gTLD Implementation and Delegation
The implementation of a process for the introduction of New gTLDs is one of the two most significant changes that have been made to the name space (the other being IDNs). This new process will significantly increase competition and choice for consumers in the gTLD marketplace and offer the potential of innovative, creative and valuable application of TLDs for Internet users. As stated in the Strategic Plan, the principal objective for this priority is to have new gTLDs functioning in the root, during FY10, with the processes to support them embedded in standard operations.

Proposed Framework for FY10 Operating Plan and Budget 17 February 2009 Page 10
The new gTLD portion of the FY10 budget is $7.45 million (vs. $8.67 million in FY09, a 14.1% decline) and includes the staff, professional services, and technical costs required to complete the development of the implementation of the new gTLD policies as well as those costs necessary to prepare for new gTLD application processing (e.g. advanced staffing of the application processing function). A separate new gTLD budget will be proposed at a later time prior to launch that will address the additional costs to actually process the applications (e.g. evaluation panel fees). This separate new gTLD budget, along with the revenue from evaluation fees, is described in Section VII.
New gTLD program development costs are projected to decline in FY10 from FY09 because the project is coming to completion. FY09 gTLD forecasted costs are below the FY09 budget levels largely due to the delays in the plans for the new gTLD program. Many of these unspent resources are still required in FY10 to complete the implementation of this program along with the costs for additional studies and preparation of an additional draft of the applicant guidebook.

2. IDN Implementation
The introduction of IDN TLDs at the top level, as well as the launch of IDN ccTLDs within the fast track process, remain a priority for ICANN, with the intent to fulfill a global need for domain names in the scripts and languages of the world. The IDN ccTLD fast track implementation plan will be completed in accordance with the recommendation from the IDNC working group, and when executed, will result in the delegation of IDN ccTLDs in the root zone. The IDN implementation portion of the FY10budget as proposed is $1.25 million (vs. $1.38 million in FY09, a 9.1% decline). As with the new gTLD program, this cost is projected to decline in FY10 because the implementation program will end. Some of the FY09 expense will be underrun, and deferred into FY10.

VeriSign to Pay $6M More to ICANN in FY 2010
Wednesday, February 18th, 2009
Proposed budget includes increased contractual fee from VeriSign.

Internet Corporation For Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has published its Proposed Framework for FY10 Operating Plan and Budget (pdf). ICANN’s Financial Year 2010 runs July 1, 2009 to June 30, 2010.

Despite the possibility of declining domain registrations, ICANN will get a $6 million windfall thanks to a fixed fee provision in its dotcom agreement with VeriSign (NASDAQ: VRSN). VeriSign will pay $18 M to ICANN for running the .com registry during the year, compared to $12 M in FY ‘09. (VeriSign pays a variable free of 75 cents for each .net transaction.)

Because of this fixed fee, ICANN expects a 28% increase in registry related revenue for FY ‘10 compared to FY ‘09. It forecasts a slight decrease in registrar revenue.

ICANN expects to spend nearly $7.5 M on new gTLD implementation and delegation for the year, which is 14% lower than forecast for 2009. However, admitted delays in new gTLD implementation may push back expenses. ICANN is budgeting that it won’t be able to contribute its goal of $10M-$15M to its reserve fund in FY ‘10 due to new gTLD expenses. A separate new TLD budget will be published prior to the launch of new TLDs. This budget will include the revenue and expenses anticipated from new TLDs (the $7.5 M forecast is for implementation, not execution).

If you’re wondering where the rest of your money goes, here’s a breakdown of the proposed FY ‘10 budget compared to the actual expenses in FY ‘07:

Personnel: $24.7M, up 79%
Travel & Meetings: $11.5M, up 85%
Professional services: $11.9M, up 102%
Administration: $6.3M, up 105%

During the same period, revenue is up 56%. END QUOTE
