Dear all,

As RIPE NCC members are aware, the Regional Internet Registries (RIRs) have
been working together for some time on the production of a relationship
agreement, or contract, between the RIRs and the Internet Corporation
for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).

There is now a draft contract that, if executed, would represent
agreement between the RIRs and ICANN on matters of roles,
responsibilities and procedures relating to Internet address management
and global address management policies. This contract would further
codify, or formalise, the existing working relationship between the RIRs
and ICANN which is set forth in the ASO MoU.

Pending the final approval of RIR and ICANN boards, and the satisfactory
development of the ICANN reform process, the RIRs believe that this
document could be signed.

To facilitate input from the RIRs' communities, the draft document is
available at:

   http://www.ripe.net/ripencc/about/regional/icanndraft-announce20020409.html

Comments are invited until Friday, 31 May 2002, 23:59 UTC.

kind regards,

Axel Pawlik
Managing Director
RIPE NCC
