Dear Colleagues,

The CRISP Team would like to highlight that RIRs' contribution to ICANN
and its fees to be paid as a part of the contract for the IANA operator
should be treated and considered separately.

Regarding the fees associated with the contract with the IANA operator
on the number resources, the CRISP Team plans to describe basic
principles about this, while not specifying a specific amount.

Best Regards,
Izumi Okutani
The CRISP Team
