The evaluation fee is 185,000USD and is required from all applicants. The evaluation of an application will not begin until ICANN has received the evaluation fee in full by a date and time that will be available in the final Applicant Guidebook. The evaluation fee is set so as to recover all costs associated with the New gTLD Program. It is to also ensure that the program is fully funded and revenue neutral and is not subsidized by existing contributions from any of ICANN's funding sources, including generic TLD registries and registrars, ccTLD contributions and RIR contributions. A detailed outline of the Evaluation Fee and other financial considerations are detailed in the Explanatory Memorandum: “Updated Cost Considerations” - http://www.icann.org/en/topics/new-gtlds/cost-considerations-04oct09-en.pdf
