- How will NTIA collect and assess proposals? Has a process been
determined? Is there a timeline in place for a decision?
- Does transition of the IANA functions out of NTIA have implications
for national security?
- How will NTIA ensure that any transition is smooth and does not affect
the daily functioning of the Internet?
