You did stated that ICANN assumes NTIA stewardship .At the sane time you stated that CSC will perform operational functions of NTIA.
May you pls explain the repartition tasks of NTIA stewardship between ICANN and CSC i.e. Since operational tasks of NTIAx will be performed by CSC then what will be performed by ICANN and what will remain to be performed by by ,NTIA non transferred

However, I think that section III.A, The elements of this proposal, on pp 18 onwards has to be seen in its entirety as it goes over the different elements of the model and the relationship between them.
> I perhaps should have mentioned yesterday that the names of the different elements have changed in drafts from those given in the chart I used to talk us through the document. In the consultation draft, “periodic review function” or PRF on the chart became the “IANA function review” or IFR: while the proposal is for the reviews to take place every five years, it is possible for a special review to be set up, so the term periodic does not quite match with the proposal. Otherwise I think I did manage to keep to current terminology.

> The NTIA has a number of roles – identified in the document which went to consultation in December. I’m sorry if I did not make clear that I was looking at NTIA’s role in letting the contract and its ability to terminate and re-tender.
> One key part of the CWG’s discussion has been focussed on separability – a role that NTIA currently has by virtue of its contract with ICANN for the role of IANA functions operator. The contract approach allows the role to be reassigned in the case of the IANA functions operator failing to meet obligations and failing to remedy the failings.

> The role of the CSC is to carry out the operational responsibilities associated with managing the contract. Its role is quite limited in that it monitors performance against the agreed service level targets and works with PTI to ensure that concerns are addressed. The CSC does not make the decision on the future of the contract.
