    Goals / Remit

    Remit: One World, One Internet

    What Does ICANN Do?
    To reach another person on the Internet you have to type an address into your computer -- a name or a number. That address must be unique so computers know where to find each other. ICANN coordinates these unique identifiers across the world. Without that coordination, we wouldn't have one global Internet.

    In more technical terms, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) coordinates the Domain Name System (DNS), Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, space allocation, protocol identifier assignment, generic (gTLD) and country code (ccTLD) Top-Level Domain name system management, and root server system management functions. These services were originally performed under U.S. Government contract by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) and other entities. ICANN now performs the IANA function.

    Other financial info

    In order to keep a clear segregation between the ICANN operations and the New gTLD Application process, from an operational and financial monitoring standpoint, the ICANN Corporation now includes two separate components: Operations, which corresponds to the existing ICANN operations comprised of Core and Project work, and New gTLD Application Processing, which includes the New gTLD Application-related revenues (fees) and costs (processing, risk, historical development).

    This structure was established in January 2012. It will be used until the New gTLD Application Processing is completed and all funds are expensed and potential remaining funds disposed of as per Board decision to be formulated with Community input. Though both components share Executive Management oversight, Infrastructure and Support services, they stand apart operationally by having:
    • Separate/dedicated accounting ledgers
    • Separate/dedicated bank accounts
    • Separate/dedicated investment funds
    • Separate/dedicated reporting formats
    • Separate/dedicated operational resources


    ICANN Operations is made up of the functional view and the statement of operations, which showcases the revenues and expenses of each fiscal year.
    The functional areas have traditionally been comprised of cross functional core organizational activities. In recent years, ICANN has put more focus on highlighting the projects (temporary large endeavors undertaken to create a unique product, service or result) which the Board and/or Community have requested the staff to work on in any fiscal year. Both core and project work can be reflected within a functional area.
    In the first part of this section, we will provide a summary of work in each of the functional core operating areas, as well as highlighting the proposed projects which were derived from the FY13 Priorities communicated in the FY13 Framework, or those suggested by either the Board or Community in discussions this year.
