“V. NTIA Requirements

Additionally, NTIA has established that the transition proposal must meet the following five requirements:

  • Support and enhance the multistakeholder model; 
  • Maintain the security, stability, and resiliency of the Internet DNS;
  • Meet the needs and expectation of the global customers and partners of the IANA functions;
  • Maintain the openness of the Internet; 
  • The proposal must not replace the NTIA role with a government-led or an inter-governmental organization solution.

This section should explain how your community’s proposal meets these requirements and how it responds to the global interest in the IANA functions.

Note: CWGRFP3 and 4 should have considered this in their work and this should only be a final sanity check to produce the text confirming this requirement once 3 and 4 are completed.”

Discussion on how to start our Assignment

  • Assignment is to respond to NTIA requirements and describe how we think our proposal meets the criteria.
