Re footnote [1], there is at present an MoU between ITU and the NRO, see 


I presume that you are not suggesting that this MoU be abrogated, rather you are suggesting that nothing more is needed.

If that is correct, then I don't agree.  As already indicated, I think that more is needed.  But I do agree that it could be done by the NRO (but that would imply that NRO would have to be incorproated as a legal entity).

    NTIA awards the IANA contract, that is, it decides who performs the IANA function, and how. 

    Presumably the MONC would do that (for the IP address part of the IANA function) instead of NTIA.

  Thanks for echoing that fact. We then need to determine whether its worth forming a council that will only be awarding a periodic contract. IMO if this community decide that a contracting regime is what is desired[1] then that role can be given to the NRO while the composition of NRO-EC is reviewed.

    But you are right to ask for a more detailed explanation: the devil is in the details.

      Maybe it's helpful to know what oversight activities is performed by NTIA at it relates to numbers(if any). That would perhaps help understand the scope of work of the MONC. Then the other question of what will the role of NRO look like and what's the formation of the MONC going to look like.

        I am currently at the LACNIC meeting and we just had the discussion of ideas & proposals surrounding the IANA transition.  A new set of ideas has been presented here for discussion in this region.  The idea of a new oversight board (MONC) to perform the NTIA oversight function.

        I bring it up here so that you can be aware of it and so that we can discuss the idea in our region as well.

        Below are links to the slides and agenda which are in spanish.

        A few personal notes from the presentation and the discussion.

        Proposal for a Multistakeholder Oversight Numbers Council (MONC)

        Permanent body that would support the NRO, would meet once per year to supervise the development & oversight of IANA functions, similar to the sitting fiscal committee of lacnic.

        It was suggested that oversight role should be done by this body for the numbers portion of the IANA functions.  Members of the Council would have to be selected or appointed to fulfill this role.  How that would happen is not part of this initial idea draft.

        One thing that was noted here is that this is a new idea and that it should be given time for discussion to see if it has merits.  There aren't a lot of details on the structure here at this time, but they should come with time.
