ICG Statement on Contracts and Other Agreements

As the development of the proposal for the IANA stewardship transition proceeds, the ICG notes that operational communities have begun discussions with ICANN concerning existing and future contracts and other agreements called for in their respective transition proposals.

The ICG expects — as it has from the very beginning of the transition process — that all interested parties will express their opinions about the transition proposals openly, transparently, and within the community processes. This includes opinions about the provisions, principles, and mechanisms associated with contracts or other agreements between the communities and the IANA functions operator. In order to ensure that any final proposal complies with the principle of multistakeholder support, it is crucial that the opinions of the proposed contracted parties be shared within the community processes as early as possible.
