We received an overwhelming response to our call for feedback in the design of a community-driven process toward achieving transition of NTIA’s Stewardship of the IANA Functions. From the launch of the public comment process in Singapore two weeks ago through last Thursday, we received numerous ideas on principles and mechanisms and are now incorporating them into our consultation materials. We also are taking into account feedback received from our I* partners.

As a result, we need a little longer than the anticipated 7 April deadline for finalizing and posting the scoping, draft process proposal and timeline documents for further public dialogue. We will now be posting COB on 8 April (UTC). Thanks for your understanding and stay tuned!
