To whom it may concern


As a member of the tech community, I wanted to express my concern about
the .net bidding process and ask a few questions about how the bids will
be evaluated. 


My company relies on the DNS infrastructure to host our corporate site,
a forthcoming web log, and for application hosting services to our
clients. We depend on the quick and accurate lookups that make the
current internet a reality.


As a seller and buyer of tech services, we are often required to develop
a list of tasks and requirements.  In your efforts to choose the right
vendor, for .net, I hope you would ask the following questions.


- Is there going to be paid third party auditor to ensure compliance
with ICANN policies?

- What is the vendor's current track record for implementing all ICANN

- Has the applicant successfully implemented the Inter-Registrar
Transfer Policy?


Third party audits and oversight will be key to whatever vendor ICANN
chooses.  I hope that the costs of those audits are figured into the
final bid, and that ICANN's policies are followed and confirmed.
