On 14th March 2014, the U.S. Government announced its intent to transition
its stewardship of the IANA functions to the global multistakeholder

Following this announcement, ICANN, was tasked with facilitating the
development of a global, and representative proposal based on the following

1.       Support and enhance the multistakeholder model;

2.       Maintain the security, stability, and resiliency of the Internet

3.       Meet the needs and expectation of the global customers and
partners of the IANA services;

4.       Maintain the openness of the Internet.

5.       The proposal must not replace the NTIA role with a government-led
or an inter-governmental organization solution.

The IANA Stewardship Transition Coordination Group (ICG) was formed in July
2014 (https://www.icann.org/en/stewardship), and tasked with assembling and
delivering a proposal to NTIA through the ICANN Board. The ICG constituted
three special interest groups representing the Domain Names community (NRO
members), Numbering Resources community (CWG), and the Protocol Parameters
community (IETF),

ICG shall compile the proposals from the three communities into a single
proposal which the ICG shall submit to the board for review, and the board
shall forward the final proposal to NTIA.

The three communities affected by IANA functions, IETF (handling protocol
parameters), Numbering community - CRISP Team  (under the umbrella of NRO),
and Domain Names community (Cross Community Working Group) have released
proposals on how the IANA transition should be handles.
