I think this was a good example of "if it isn't broke don't fix it"
Ican have done a pretty good job of managing the web fundamentals so far. By retaining the task with Ican there is no reason why this shouldn't continue.

|At the time of purchase order award, the estimated value of this purchase order is less than $10,000 |
Makes a mockery of contracts and lawyers in general wouldn't you say? :)

I suppose that just indicates the direct, out of pocket cost (payments from the US gov't to ICANN) is less than $10,000.
I imagine the value of the contract to ICANN is a bit higher, but they don't have a place on the form to indicate that amount. ;)

There was a lot of critics about ICANN in recent years but if they do really manage IANA for $10.000 then the U.S. government will not find an alternative managing body other than ICANN :)

ICANN gets its revenue from fees paid by registrars, not from the US taxpayers.

Its about managing IANA IPs/network not about domain names

Right, but do you know how hard it must be to manage the internet protocol databases? I know that the paperwork required for allocation of a Class C (254 IP addresses) has changed (increased) dramatically over the years.
