The IAOC announces that an agreement has been concluded between the Internet Society and the University of Southern California for the provision of RFC Editor services for two years beginning January 1, 2007.
The Information Sciences Institute at USC has been providing RFC Editor services under contract with the Internet Society since October 1998. This is the first time the contract was open for competitive bidding.
In addition, to ensure clarity of rights of use for RFCs published before October 1, 1998, the University has granted the Internet Society a license which the Internet Society will in turn provide to the IETF Trust.
The IAOC looks forward to working with the IAB, and the ISI team in the delivery of quality RFCs in an expeditious manner for the IETF and Internet community.
Contract details will be available in two weeks at http://iaoc.ietf.org/rfc_editor.html.
