State the number of registrars in each of the following three categories: (1) operational, (2) ramp-up (registrars that have received a password for access to OT&E), and (3) pre-ramp-up (registrars that have requested access, but have not yet entered the ramp-up period).

2. Service Level Agreement Performance. Compare Service Level Agreement requirements with actual performance measures for the reporting month.

3. TLD Zone File Access Activity. State the total number of zone file access passwords at end of the reporting month.
