This document explains the process that the ICG will follow for assembly and finalization of the IANA Stewardship Transition Proposal. It includes information about the ICANN Board's role in conveying the final transition proposal to NTIA.

The ICG has also issued an update to its previously published process timeline – https://www.icann.org/en/system/files/files/icg-process-timeline-07jan15-en.pdf [PDF, 51 KB]. The target dates remain unchanged in the updated timeline, but the explanations of the last two steps in the timeline have been updated for consistency with the Assembly and Finalization Process. The previously published timeline graphic https://www.icann.org/en/system/files/files/icg-process-timeline-graphic-10sep14-en.xlsx [XLSX, 44 KB] remains consistent with the updated timeline.
