The IESG and IAB have called for IETF consensus on a plan for transitioning the
IETF administrative support infrastructure.

If the transition that we have proposed garners IETF consensus, we intend to
build a transition team in order to get to work on the details of the structure
we are building as fast as possible.

The transition team will do substantial work on getting the IASA structure up
and running. The transition team would not be empowered to make binding
agreements, but could work with appropriate consultants and advisors to make a
lot of progress towards making sure the IASA gets off to a quick start - see
draft-wasserman-adminrest-plan for details.

This effort will require a substantial time investment from the team members in
the months of November, December and January; the exact length of the team's
tenure depends on the speed and result of the process leading to the IAOC being

As described in draft-wasserman-adminrest-plan, the composition of the team is
the following:

1 IESG selected member
1 IAB selected member
1 ISOC selected member
The IETF Chair
The IAB Chair
The ISOC President/CEO

The IESG and IAB needs to find the right people to select for this team - we
need people who understand the types of issues involved (financial, management,
legal and so on), as well as understanding the IETF.

We would like to have suggestions from the community on who would be good
people for these roles. Please send names of people you think would do a good
job on this team (or your own name, if you're willing to be considered) to the
the IESG and IAB lists ( and we will attempt to put
together a merged "candidate pool" from which the IAB and IESG can make their

In order to make it possible to consult with people at the IETF, we request
that you send us the names of possible candidates before November 8, 2004.
