The IETF Administration LLC (IETF LLC) is soliciting proposals ("Proposals") for the
Temporary RFC Series Project Manager (PM).  The PM will assume responsibility 
for a subset of the tasks that are normally performed by the RFC Series Editor 
(RSE) role during the term of the contract, outlined below.  As this is a temporary 
position, the PM shall not be responsible for the evolution of the RFC series. 
Instead the PM shall shepherd changes already planned or in progress, and such 
incremental changes as are necessary to meet those goals. The general 
responsibilities of the RSE are laid out in RFC 6635, but that document should 
only be understood to apply to this project to the extent it, or parts of it, is 
incorporated by reference into the actual contract. The scope of responsibilities
and goals of the PM role are outlined here:  https://www.ietf.org/about/administration/rfps/
