I agree with Kavouss on this.

ICANN can forward the ICG's recommendation to NTIA, but may not alter it in any way.

I also agree with Lynn's recommended language change.

I have no problem that ICANN transmit the proposal to NTIA but without any modification what so ever.
i.e. ICANN ACTS AS A post office.
We do not want the all efforts made by global multistakeholder community be edited or modified or commented by ICANN
ICANN  could be part of the process and submites its comment to ICG and not act as AUDITOR FOR ICG

Hi Alissa

I hope things are well.  We at NTIA wanted to once again thank you and the members of the ICG for all your hard work.  NTIA is actively monitoring things and took note of the process time line posted by the ICG on Sept 8th.  We wanted to alert you now that we see a procedural issue with “step 7” as proposed.  As articulated in our March announcement, we asked ICANN as the both IANA functions contractor and the global coordinator for the DNS to convene the multistakeholder process to develop the transition plan.  (See: http://www.ntia.doc.gov/press-release/2014/ntia-announces-intent-transition-key-internet-domain-name-functions).  This means as practical matter and consistent with procurement rules, ICANN must be the part that formally submits the transition proposal to NTIA.  While not a substantive concern, we wanted to flag this procedural issue now so that it can be addressed by the ICG and ICANN well in advance.

Thank you
