"GSA" will provide, to anyone who asks, a numeric value that can be used in the administrative authority identifier field of U.S. GOSIP version 2 of Network Service Access Point (NSAP) addresses, under a delegation of authority from the ISO 6523 part of ISO's subtree that is registered as the [current arc]."
