STERLING, Va. – Yesterday, the North American Portability Management LLC (NAPM) announced on its website that it extended the deadline to respond to its Request for Proposal (RFP) for selection of the next local number portability administrator until April 22, 2013. Neustar, Inc. (NYSE:NSR) issued the following statement from Steve Edwards, Senior Vice President for Carrier Services, regarding the NAPM’s announcement:

Neustar successfully submitted its proposal on April 5, 2013, which was the deadline previously announced by the NAPM.  The RFP process has been a matter of public record since May 2011, was subject to a robust public comment process, and the deadline for submission of responses was published 60 days in advance of the filing deadline.  The process was designed to promote competition and provided interested parties with sufficient time to meet the submission requirements.  Neustar filed its response in a timely manner and in accordance with the RFP submission requirements. We remain confident in the strength of our proposal and the value to be gained by the industry and consumers if we are awarded the contract to continue in July 2015 as the local number portability administrator.
