October 29, 2018

On October 26, NTIA Administrator David Redl sent a letter to ICANN Board of Directors Chair Cherine Chalaby raising a concern about an accountability deficit at ICANN. The letter states that "[r]ecent ICANN senior staff departures have highlighted that ICANN lacks post-employment restrictions," and recommends an immediate review as well as "cooling off periods" as a potential solution "to ensure that conflicts of interest or appearances of unethical behavior are minimized."
