> The ICG is independent of the ICANN Board. ICANN is represented on the ICG by two liaisons: one from the Board and one from the IANA staff. Both liaisons are there to provide information about the IANA functions and to keep the Board and the ICG informed about the implications of the transition. Like any other member of the community, the ICANN Board can submit comments through the established procedures for public comment. Consistent with U.S. federal government procurement rules, the NTIA needs to have the final proposal submitted to it by the ICANN Board,
My understanding is that the procurement rules requirement is that the proposal be submitted by “ICANN,” not specifically the ICANN Board. That is, exactly who from ICANN transmits the proposal is up to ICANN. So I would suggest editing the above phrase as follows:
"Consistent with U.S. federal government procurement rules, the NTIA needs to have the final proposal submitted to it by ICANN,”
