I hear both of you,  Andrei, Mwendwa, that you believe the timing is important, hence shouldn't postpone the action items on IPR post-transition.

This is a summary of my suggestion.

1. Submit to ICG, that all IPR issues to be implemented *before* the contract expiry
   The current suggested submission to the ICG actually says the IPR issue to be addressed before the contract expiry. It does not say anything about post-transition.
   (It is my understanding that this is what Andrei and Mwenda supports)

2. We continue discussions within the CRISP Team in coming two weeks, about timing of implementation of all IPR action items
    - We confirm consensus on this issue at the coming CRISP call on 8th Oct
      (Whether all action items need to be completed prior to the contract or some can be deferred post-transition)
    - I believe this is needed given we observe different opinions

Below is a paste of the draft submission, the same as what I have posted in my earlier mail to Andrei : https://www.nro.net/pipermail/crisp/2015-September/002264.html

If you still have concerns about the draft submission to the ICG, I genuinely don't understand what it is, as I have intended to address your point.
Please suggest a text ASAP. 


Action Items to be submittted to the ICG

 a) Action Item description (and Combined Proposal paragraph reference (or other reference?)):

 b) Indicate whether the item needs to be done:
	- before the proposal goes to the NTIA, or
	- during implementation (before contract expiry)

 c) Group/organization responsible for the action item
