I have noticed that ICANN is not contracting by publishing any RFP any more. I understand from raising this in the BA meeting that ICANN is contracting a purchasing manager. Ms Beth Noveck commented that research indicated that traditional purchasing stifled inovation and there were 21 Century aproches to this. This is an area to explore.
ICANN could create an open data policy to facilitate reuse of information and the creation of new services.
–What kind of data collected by ICANN, registries, registrars, etc. could be subject to this open data policy?
