Perhaps you were not paying attention… The board has already inflicted this upon us effective January, 2022.

Not exactly. This proposal is aimed at having policy catch up to that which the board has already inflicted upon us. It’s more a reflection of the unfortunate actions of the board than an effort to push the board in a particular direction.

Cart, horse…

>> Problem Statement:
>> Starting in Jan 1 2022, ISPs and end users will no longer have a distinction in terms of fees and both will be under RSA membership terms. There is existing policy language in the NRPM which references ISPs and end users separately.
>> Policy statement:
>> This policy aims to synchronize the NRPM in regards to the new 2022 fee schedule by consolidating instances where ISPs and End users have clear distinctions.

>> Comments: The fee schedule is not in effect until Jan 1, 2022. The new Fee Schedule includes the following changes, “Transitioning End Users from annual per-resource maintenance fees to the RSP (Registration Services Plan) Fee Schedule”
>> Timetable for implementation: Any time after Jan 1,2022
>> Anything else: The AC/community may want to consider the word “resource holder” rather than organization in the new text.
