    Re: Purchase Order No. 40SBNT067020:
    Administration of the ARPA Top Level Domain

    Dear Mr. Touton:

    As noted in your organization's quotation of February 2, 2000, the ARPA Top Level Domain (TLD) exists in the root zone of the domain name system as a limited use domain currently consisting of one record, in- addr.ARPA. On April 14, 2000, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), formerly known as the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA), officially signaled its disassociation with the ARPA domain and its understanding the domain would be used by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names (ICANN) and Numbers and the Internet Architecture Board (IAB) for additional Internet infrastructure uses.

    In keeping with the DARPA understanding, we believe that the ARPA domain should be made available for this specific, limited purpose. The Department of Commerce considers this an Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) function and has requested that the WHOIS entry for the ARPA domain reflect IANA as the registrant.

    Purchase Order No. 40SBNT067020 provides that "[ICANN] will perform other IANA functions as needed upon request of DOC." As such, the Department of Commerce requests that, as part of the IANA functions, ICANN undertake administration of the ARPA TLD in cooperation with the Internet technical community under the guidance of the IAB, as a limited use domain for Internet infrastructure applications, including the migration of Internet infrastructure applications that currently reside in the .int TLD. Further, as indicated by DARPA, the ARPA TLD string should be given a different expansion such as "Address and Routing Parameter Area" to avoid any implication that DARPA has operational responsibility for the domain.

    If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
