Draft Policy ARIN-2011-12
Set Transfer Need to 24 months

Date: 24 August 2011

Policy statement:

If ARIN-prop-146 passes, also modify "will be utilized within 12 months" 
to "will be utilized within 24 months"

Rationale:

Due to the complexity of the financial transaction that may be
involved and the associated budgeting on the part of the receiving
organization, 24 months is a more reasonable amount of forecast need to
allow to be fulfilled via the transfer process.

Potential benefit to address aggregation by allowing fewer larger
transfers sooner.

Change from previous version: uses the new language proposed in
ARIN-prop-146 rather than modifying 4.2.4.4. Also no longer modifies
4.2.4.4 to apply to section 8.2 transfers.

Timetable for implementation: immediate
