Hi all ..

An ICANN Announcement (10th Aug) regarding .org

Preliminary Report to ICANN Board: ISOC to Run .org

Marina del Rey, California USA (19 August 2002) Today, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) posted a preliminary Staff Report on the selection of a new registry operator to assume responsibility on January 1, 2003 for the .org registry. The report, which is subject to public comment and comment by all the bidders before being submitted for approval to the ICANN Board of Directors, recommends that the Board select the Internet Society (ISOC) as the successor registry operator for the .org registry, currently operated by VeriSign.

This preliminary report follows an extensive bid solicitation and evaluation process that was launched last April. Eleven bids were received in response to a Request for Proposals. These bids were analyzed and evaluated by three evaluation teams that operated independently of each other. 

“We received eleven very strong and thoughtful proposals,” noted Stuart Lynn, President of ICANN. “We appreciate the response of the institutions behind these proposals. The ISOC proposal was the only one that received top ranking from all three evaluation teams. On balance, their proposal stood out from the rest.” Lynn also emphasized the openness and transparency of the solicitation and evaluation process.

Cheers all ..
