Thank you Adiel,

and a sincere thank you to ICANN for accommodating this.  We maximize the chance of a successful outcome if we are always clear that this process is operating under community leadership.

>> The IANA Stewardship Transition Coordination Group (ICG) will issue a Request for Proposal (RFP) to select a suitable contractor trough ICANN process to perform its secretariat function. The ICG was established as a result of a broad community consultation and in response to the announcement by the U.S National Telecommunication and Information Administration Department (NTIA) of its intent to transition key Internet domain name functions to the global multistakeholder community. 
> The ICG is composed of representatives from different stakeholders groups to coordinate and deliver a single proposal. For more information about its role, please visit: https://www.icann.org/en/stewardship/coordination-group
> If you are interested in bidding for this proposal please send an Expression of Intent (EoI) to SecretariatForICG-rfp at icann.org by 07 September 2014
> The Expression of Interest shall provide the Name of Organisation your organisation and your  Contact details.
