 Proposed Structure of the IETF Administrative Support Activity (IASA),

Abstract

   The IETF Administrative Support Activity (IASA) was originally
   established in 2005.  In the intervening years, the needs of the IETF
   have evolved in ways that require changes to its administrative
   structure.  The purpose of this document is to spur discussion by
   outlining some details of what an "IASA 2.0" arrangement could look
   like.  The proposal is for the execution of the IETF's administrative
   and fundraising tasks to be conducted by a new administrative
   organization ("IETFAdminOrg").  The IAOC would be eliminated, and its
   oversight and advising functions transferred to the IETFAdminOrg
   board and a new IETF Administrative Advisory Council, respectively.

1.  Introduction

   The IETF Administrative Support Activity (IASA) was originally
   established in 2005 [RFC4071].  In the intervening years, the needs
   of the IETF have evolved in ways that require changes to its
   administrative structure.  [I-D.haberman-iasa20dt-recs] discusses the
   challenges facing the current structure as well as several options
   for reorganizing the IETF's administration under different legal
   structures.  [ML-memo] further outlines the legal details of various
   options, including three options - an independent 501(c)(3)
   organization, a 501(c)(3) Type 1 supporting organization of ISOC, and
   an LLC that is a disregarded entity of ISOC - that would entail
   setting up a new organization to house the administration of the
   IETF.  This document outlines one way that such an organization could
   be structured and describes how the organization could fit together
   with existing and new IETF community structures.  In this document
   the new administrative organization is known as IETFAdminOrg.

   The purpose of this document is to spur discussion by outlining some
