Neustar, Inc. (NYSE: NSR), a trusted, neutral provider of real-time information services and analytics, today announced an update on the selection process for the local number portability administrator contract beginning July 1, 2015.
Throughout the NPAC administrator selection process, Neustar has fully responded to each deadline and request. In April 2013, Neustar submitted an initial proposal according to the process and subsequently responded to the North American Portability Management LLC's (NAPM) request for a revised submission. In October 2013, the company requested the opportunity for all bidders to submit additional revised proposals. Together with that request, the company also submitted a revised proposal. On January 24, 2014, the company was notified that its October 2013 proposal would not be considered.
“Under the stewardship of Neustar, the NAPM and the FCC, the NPAC has become the world’s largest and most complex number management system and it is poised to be the system for the future. We believe that given our track record in innovating to meet the industry’s needs, as well as our exceptional stewardship of the NPAC, we are the logical choice to be the local number portability administrator over the next contract period. The industry, consumers, and competition can only benefit from allowing all bidders the opportunity to submit new and revised proposals. We will continue to seek the opportunity for bidders to do so,” said Lisa Hook, Neustar's President and Chief Executive Officer.
