Greetings team,

I want to understand this statement by Steve Crocker on cost for publishing
the IANA registries. Is this charge the same as what we have provided in
the Numbering proposal and Draft SLA?. On our "IANA SLA principles", Page
12 of the CRISP proposal, we had  a principle "11. Fee
The fee is based on costs incurred by the IANA Numbering Services Operator
in providing the IANA Numbering Service. Relevant section(s) in the NTIA
contract: B.2"

This fee is also referenced on the Draft SLA.

Article 5: Fees3
5.1 Obligation to reimburse cost
The RIRs shall reimburse the Operator for the direct cost of the work,
namely the costs
necessarily and reasonably incurred in the performance of the work, and
actually paid, by
the Operator.
5.2 Maximum Reimbursement
Notwithstanding the foregoing, the maximum amount the RIRs shall reimburse
Operator pursuant to Article 5.1 above shall be One Hundred Dollars
($100.00) unless
otherwise agreed to in writing by all Parties.
