ICANN's Engineering & Information Technology (E&IT) department is the foundational "service provider" for ICANN. The E&IT team uses an integrative, collaborative process to gather demands for systems and prioritize work. Twice a year, senior leaders in ICANN org evaluate their respective function's current and future E&IT-related project demands. Projects include optimizing computer, network, and storage infrastructure, custom-coding fit-for-purpose software systems, and optimizing the infrastructure for such systems.[1]

Frozen Delivery Pipeline Process

The list of IT demands is managed via the following process. Feedback is gathered from each team, project proposals are aligned with ICANN's strategies, and cross-functional dependencies and impacts and community input are considered to prioritize requests. This process leads to a priority list of E&IT demands for each function within ICANN org. The projects are considered in light of community-reviewed and ICANN Board-approved budgets and the E&IT department’s capacity for each upcoming semester (January-June or July-December). The resulting list is called the “Frozen Delivery Pipeline,” which is then reviewed and approved by ICANN Senior Vice Presidents and the ICANN CEO.

E&IT Workstreams

The E&IT department has seven workstreams:

  1. Community Engagement: supporting Engagement with the ICANN community.
  2. Community Collaboration: working on tools and websites used by ICANN org, SOs, and ACs, such as the Information Transparency Initiative (ITI).
  3. Contracted Parties: supporting transactional work with registries and registrars
  4. Technical Services: the systems used by ICANN org and/or community to ensure contracted parties meet contractual obligations, such as Service Level Agreement Monitoring (SLAM), Zone File Access, and CZDS
  5. IANA Services: systems for performing the IANA functions, including root zone management.
  6. Staff Services: for the ICANN org, including Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) functions for HR and Finance, Intranet, email, and phone systems
  7. IT Infrastructure: systems and services such as Zoom, data centers, cloud, information security, and ICANN Managed Root Servers (IMRS).
