Presumably you are therefore saying "yes" to the first of the two 
alternatives I mentioned?

That's why some people might think it was the second alternative. In

complete the process of deciding what the job is, how a transition away 
from NTIA (to anyone at all) would be managed, and how the successful 
candidate would be chosen.
