Welcome to the IANA Stewardship Transition Coordination Group (ICG) website, a comprehensive destination for discussion, contribution, and collaboration related to the NTIA's announcement and request of 14 March 2014. The ICG is comprised of 30 individuals representing 13 communities. It was created in July 2014 as a result of community discussions and input provided as part of ICANN's Process to Develop the Proposal and Next Steps.
The community is encouraged to view the ICG links located in the navigation table to the right to access the most up-to-date information on the IANA Stewardship Transition Coordination Group.
Seven public comments were received concerning the IANA IPR agreements.

Shortly after the NTIA Announcement of 14 March 2014, ICANN launched a multistakeholder process and discussion to gather community views and input on the principles and mechanisms for the transitioning of NTIA's stewardship of the IANA functions.
Following a month-long call for input on the community-driven draft proposal, on 6 June, ICANN posted the Process to Develop the Proposal and Next Steps.
When NTIA announced its intent to transition its stewardship, NTIA established that the transition proposal must have broad community support and address the following four principles:
NTIA also explained that it would not accept a proposal that replaces the NTIA role with a government-led or an inter-governmental organization solution.
Then following a call for names, the IANA Stewardship Transition Coordination Group (ICG) was formed comprised of individuals selected by each represented community. These 30 individuals represent 13 communities of both direct and indirect stakeholders who together will deliver a proposal to the NTIA recommending a transition plan of NTIA's stewardship of IANA functions to the Internet community, consistent with the key principles outlined in the NTIA March 14 announcement. The ICG will conduct itself transparently, consult with a broad range of stakeholders and ensure that its final recommendations support the security and stability of the IANA functions.
