Some suggestions have been made about the duration of the proposed 
contract between the RIRs and the IANA Operator, and about other 
details related to the proposed contract.

In the view of the CRISP Team, the contract should be drawn up by 
the RIRs' legal teams, and it is not appropriate for the CRISP 
Team's response to the ICG RFP to go into much detail about the 
content of the contract.

We suggest that, at an appropriate time in the future, the 
relevant legal teams should include the following considerations 
in the contract:

  - whether the contract should be for a fixed or indefinite term;
  - how renewal should be handled;
  - conditions that may trigger termination;
  - provisions for a smooth and orderly transition to a different
    operator in the future, including transfer of relevant assets;
  - the possibility that different parts of the IANA function may
    be transitioned to different operators in the future.
