In its 3rd addenda to its Request for Proposals to Obtain. Operate. 
Manage. Administer. Maintain and Market the Geographic Top Level 
Domain .nyc, the DoITT stated:

Contractor shall maintain an active membership in RISG (Registry 
Internet Security Group) registrysafety.org OARC (DNS Operations, 
Analysis & Research Center) dns-oarc.org APWG (Ami Phishing Working 
Group) apwg.org

Passing on the marginal utility of the first and third requirement, 
and I did so comment in CORE's response, the 2nd requirement for OARC 
membership was prudent and reasonable.

FWIW, CORE will shortly join OARC.
