The IETF Administration LLC has extended [1] the contract for the RFC Production Center with Association Management Solutions for one year until the end of 2022.  This contract had previously been awarded and twice extended to a total of six years, and would normally have been re-tendered after that time.   However, it is expected that major changes will need to be made to the contract to implement the output of the RFC Editor Future Program and this extra year provides for that without additional disruption to the service.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions.
