This is an update on the developments from the CRISP Team.

The first teleconference was held on 09 December 2014. Here are the
highlights from the meeting:

o There was participation from all CRISP team members as well as
several observers.
o Izumi Okutani and Alan Barrett were elected Chair and Vice Chairs
o Apart from voting 8/10 on the the final proposal, other decisions
during the period leading to the deadline will be by rough
consensus. To meet the deadline of 15 January 2015, there will be
two weekly teleconferences up until an initial draft proposal has
been put together.
o A drafting team has already volunteered to put together the first
draft based on the currently existing materials from discussions
that were held in each region, which draft will be discussed at the
second teleconference on 11 December 2015.

We encourage the community to continue providing any feedback and
ideas by subscribing to the mailing list ianaoversight at

So far, here are the main points coming from our region based on the
survey results and discussions at AFRINIC20 and AFRINIC21 pertinent
to the following requirements that the transition proposal to the
NTIA must meet:

Requirement 1: Support and enhance the multi-stakeholder model
Requirement 2: Maintain the security, stability, and resiliency of
the Internet DNS
Requirement 3: Meet the needs and expectation of the global
customers and partners of the IANA functions
Requirement 4: Maintain the openness of the Internet
Requirement 5: The proposal must not replace the NTIA role with a
government-led or an inter-governmental organization solution.

The community has provided feedback below, which already meets the
above stated requirements:

o The existing mechanisms for the Policy Development Process in the
AFRINIC community (as well as other communities) are already
successfully embracing the multi-stakeholder model requirement and
shall be maintained.

o There should be minimum (or no) changes to the existing IANA
services operator (ICANN) to ensure continuity, stability and
minimal disruption to critical internet operations.

o There should be an agreement (SLA, MoU) between the IANA operator
(ICANN) and the NRO or any other body the communities eventually
agree on that will provide oversight and accountability to the RIRs.

o The existing Global Policy Development Process which is already
transparent, open and all-inclusive should be maintained and sustained.

Further community input to this critical process is still welcome,
and can be shared with us on the ianaoversight at mailing list.
