The ARIN Consolidated RIR IANA Stewardship Proposal (CRISP) team members, along with our colleagues from each of the other four RIRs, are hard at work preparing the proposal to submit to the IANA Stewardship Transition Coordination Group (ICG). (Check here for background on the IANA Stewardship Transition) We’ve had four conference calls so far in addition to an initial face-to-face meeting. We held our most recent conference call yesterday on 18 December, and we are making good progress. The first draft of the Consolidated RIR IANA Transition Proposal is now available for review and comment. See the PDF of the Draft Response to the Internet Coordination Group Request for Proposals on IANA from the RIR community.
The draft addresses all six parts of the ICG’s RFP including:
- Number Community’s Use of IANA
- Existing, Pre-Transition Arrangements,
- Proposed Post-Transition Oversight and Accountability Arrangements
- Transition Implications
- NTIA Requirements
- Community Process
Key points in the proposed transition are:
- Continue with ICANN as operator of the IANA function
- Exchange a service-level agreement with ICANN as the IANA function operator on number resources
- Establish a Review Committee with representatives from each RIR region
Discussion of this proposal will be held on the NRO global mailing list, so please subscribe to firstname.lastname@example.org to provide your feedback on the first proposal from the numbers community.
