NOWG reviewed and recommended that this change order be approved. Recommendation was provided to the FCC on May 25, 2007.

25 10/10/2007NOWG NANC Report25 NANPA Change Order #12 Recommendation Change Order #12 proposed to replace all four (4) of the servers currently in use for the NANP Administration System (NAS).
