It would probably be best to provide an answer with sufficient context to allow NTIA 
(as the eventual receipt of the information) with the ability to interpolate based on its
own knowledge.   For example -

 “In order to be ready for the stewardship transition, the IETF requires an updated SLA
 with ICANN which addresses these two issues.  An updated SLA has been drafted and
 the protocol parameter community can be ready for stewardship transition immediately
 after its has been executed with ICANN.   At this time, we do not have any information
 regarding when ICANN will be able to enter into the updated SLA.”
