    Budget and Expenditures Contract between ICANN and the RIR's
    posted by tbyfield on Sunday April 07 2002, @12:29PM

    Hendrik writes "RIPE NCC published a Notice Concerning Contract between ICANN and the Regional Internet Registries. Most interesting remarks are at the bottom on the release of one half of the funds to ICANN the RIR's kept in escrow.

    The notice reads..."



    Notice Concerning Contract between ICANN and the Regional Internet Registries

    The Regional Internet Registries (RIRs) have reached the position in the drafting of a contract between the RIRs and the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) where there is a draft contract that represents agreement between the RIRs and ICANN on matters of roles, responsibilities and procedures relating to Internet address management and global address management policies. This contract would further codify the existing working relationship between the RIRs and ICANN which is set forth in the ASO MOU.

    Presented below is a copy of the joint letter from the RIRs to Stuart Lynn, ICANN's President and CEO.

    Subject: Contract between ICANN and the Regional Internet Registries
    
    Dear Stuart:
    
    The Regional Internet Registries (RIRs) have reached the position in the
    drafting of a contract between the RIRs and the Internet Corporation for
    Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) where there is a draft contract that
    represents agreement between the RIRs and ICANN on matters of roles,
    responsibilities and procedures relating to Internet address management
    and global address management policies. This contract would further
    codify the existing working relationship between the RIRs and ICANN
    which is set forth in the ASO MOU.
    
    Completion of the contract is contingent on the outcome of a number of
    further steps:
    
    - It is anticipated that the draft contract will be the subject of a
    process of public review within the ICANN and RIR constituencies.  Any
    proposed changes to the contract as a result of these reviews will
    require further consultation between the parties.
    
    - The RIRs also note that a program of evolution and reform has been
    initiated by ICANN that may result in outcomes for ICANN that could have
    a material effect on the ability of the parties to complete their
    commitments as documented in the draft contract. This situation will be
    monitored by the parties during ICANN's process of defining any
    consequent reform activities.
    
    The RIR's have been holding contract payments to ICANN in escrow pending
    completion of the contract. As an sign of good faith at this stage of
    the process, the RIRs will release one half of these funds to ICANN.
    
    The Regional Internet Registries are:
          The American Registry for Internet Numbers (www.arin.net) (ARIN)
          Réseaux IP Européens Network Coordination Centre (www.ripe.net)
    (RIPE NCC)
          Asia Pacific Network Information Centre (www.apnic.net) (APNIC)
