Updates on other transition-related activities
Transition timeline and implementation
Following a request by the National Telecommunications and Information
Administration (NTIA <http://www.ntia.doc.gov/> ) to thechairs of the ICG
77c3dd16/attachment.pdf>  [PDF 575 KB] and CCWG-Accountability
0.html>  for information on projected dates for completing the stewardship
transition, the IANA Stewardship Transition Coordination Group (ICG
<http://www.ianacg.org/> ) wrote to the three operational communities (here
, here 
and here 
) for more information on how long it would take to implement each of the
three components of the transition proposal. The IETF Working Group on
Planning for the IANA/NTIA Transition (IANAPLAN
<https://datatracker.ietf.org/wg/ianaplan/documents/> ) has responded
> , stating they believe the protocol parameters component could be
implemented promptly, pending more information about the possible
involvement of the protocol parameters community in the CWG-Stewardship's
proposed Post-TransitionIANA (PTI).
The announcement of Fadi Chehadé's departure as ICANN CEO in 2016
On 21 May, ICANN's CEO, Fadi Chehadé announced
<https://www.icann.org/news/announcement-2015-05-21-en>  that he would leave
his position in March 2016. Following his announcement, the NTIA released a
short statement 
rickling-icann-ceo-chehade> , noting, "A successful transition does not
depend on the leadership of a single individual, but rather the engagement
of the global multistakeholder community working collaboratively to ensure
that the Internet remains open, secure, and resilient."
IANA-related discussions at WSIS Forum 2015 and EuroDIG 2015
* On 28 May, the ICANN Cross-Community Working Group on Internet Governance
organized a session at the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS)
Forum 2015, titled IANAStewardship Transition – A Live Example of a
Multi-Stakeholder Process
<http://www.itu.int/net4/wsis/forum/2015/Agenda/Session/269> .
* On 5 June, the EuroDIG held a session, The IANA Stewardship Transition: A
Test Case for Internet Governance?
U.S. Government processes related to the IANA stewardship transition
* On 5 June 2014, The US Government Accountability Office (GAO
<http://www.gao.gov/> ) was asked by the Chairs of the U.S. Government's
House Energy and Commerce Committee
-examination-administration-proposal-regarding-future>  to review the NTIA's
plan to transition its oversight of the IANA functions.
* In response to this, the Consolidated RIR IANA Stewardship Proposal (CRISP
<https://www.nro.net/crisp-team> ) Team submitted awritten response to the
n-Name-System-Discussion-Guide-CRISP.pdf>  [PDF 60 KB] on May 12.
* Also on May 12, a revised version of 2014's Defending Internet Freedom Act
of 2014 (H.R. 5737 
<https://www.congress.gov/bill/113th-congress/house-bill/5737> ) was
submitted. This year's version, Defending Internet Freedom Act (H.R. 2251
<https://www.congress.gov/bill/114th-congress/house-bill/2251/text> ), is,
in contrast to the previous version of the bill, supportive of the global
multistakeholder efforts to develop a transition plan for IANA's
stewardship, but still would require specific conditions to be met before
the NTIA could complete the transition.
* On June 3, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Commerce, Justice,
Science, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act (H.R. 2578
<https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/114/hr2578> ). It contains similar
language to the previous Act, which prevented government funds being used by
the NTIA to complete the transition of its stewardship over IANA until the
end of the financial year in September. The Act next goes to the U.S. Senate
for its consideration.
