This is also my understanding but it was good i asked (incase i missed

Ditto! I believe ensuring the provision of reports as currently done by
IANA operator will still be continued (or improved upon if there are
identify lapses) and continuity of such feature can be ensured by including
relevant lines in the agreement. Also as you have rightly noted that NTIA
play no major standing/daily role in reviewing reports, i think the role
carried out by NTIA is what the NRO NC can comfortably handle and there may
be no need to create a whole team just to read periodic reports.
