Dear OMA,

The IETF's liaison manager to OMA, Murray Kucherawy, has asked to step down.

The IAB's position on liaison relationships with other SDOs is that the best
way for other SDOs to collaborate with IETF is to participate in the
appropriate IETF working groups. Liaison managers are appointed when the
liaison relationship with another SDO isn't working effectively through normal

Upon review of the IETF/OMA liaison relation, the IAB feels that the liaison
relationship between IETF and OMA is functioning effectively through the
appropriate working groups, so the IAB does not plan to replace Murray at this

We would like to cordially thank Murray for his years of service as the IETF's
liaison manager between the two organizations.

Bernard Aboba, IAB Chair
