IANA contract opened again for re-bid by the US government

by Frank Michlick in Categories: ICANN / Policy

After the US National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) had canceled the first RFP for a new IANA contractor because they “received no proposals that met the requirements“, the RFP was opened again for bids two days ago. ICANN had submitted a bid, which was not accepted by  NITA. The deadline for bids to the new RFP, which doesn’t seem to deviate from the previous one by much, is May 31st, 2012.

The current contract was to expire on March 31st of this year, but was extended by six months just before ICANN’s 43rd meeting.

As reported by DomainIncite, ICANN is to report on a debriefing as to why their previous bid was not accepted:

Over a month ago, at an ICANN press conference in Costa Rica, CEO Rod Beckstrom said: “We were invited to have a debriefing with [the NTIA] to learn more about this. Following that discussion we will share any information we are allowed to share.”

There is a fat lady singing in front of the ICANN building with pigs flying overhead.
