Let me ask for a clarification. When you say "from the responses received" I presume you imply "from the responses that pass the base criteria ICANN procurement process sets"?

I.e. the steps should be as follows (and in many cases "ICG" is in reality "subgroup of ICG", and all ICANN actions below is while keeping ICG, or subgroup of ICG informed:

ICG creates a requirements document (the document Adiel is working on)

ICANN creates an RFP based on this ICG paper

A set of responses are gathered by ICANN

ICANN filter out the ones that do not fulfil base requirements

ICG do select the secretariat

Secretariat reports to ICG
