ICANN is seeking a provider to independently review the Generic Names Supporting Organisation (GNSO), the policy-making body for generic top-level domains (gTLDs).

Although the GNSO is reviewed periodically, ICANN said the latest assessment is of “critical importance” to its community because of the increase in gTLDs.

ICANN wants a “qualified provider” to start the six-month review by July 1, 2014.

Proposals must be submitted to ICANN by May 13, with presentations to follow later in the month. A final report is due in January 2015.

The GNSO’s members include representatives from gTLD registries, intellectual property owners and businesses.
