MARINA DEL REY, CA - The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) posted a redacted version of its May 31, 2012 proposal to provide the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) functions. According to ICANN, the US Department of Commerce, National Telecommunications and Information Administration awarded the contract to ICANN on July 2, 2012. The contract incorporates by reference the ICANN proposal and two responses to requests for additional information. 

The original proposal is organized into two volumes: Volume I includes the technical and management approaches, information on past performance and documentation demonstrating fulfillment of mandatory factors spelled out in the solicitation. Because of its size, Volume I has been saved into three separate PDFs: 

• Volume I, Part 1 of 3
• Volume I, Part 2 of 3
• Volume I, Part 3 of 3 

Volume II includes financial information and project funding strategy. Also posted are two responses to requests for additional information: 

• Correspondence dated 23 June 2012 and 26 June 2012 

ICANN staff made three redactions. First, we redacted from the security section confidential information about ICANN's internal networks. Second, we redacted Appendix D "IANA Data Classification Standards" from Volume I, as it is still in draft form and proceeding through internal review. Finally, in our response to a request for additional information, we redacted the portion of the subject line of the letter that stated, "Confidential and Business Proprietary" as this statement is no longer applicable.
