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"


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 Also no longer modifies to apply to section 8.2 transfers.

Timetable for implementation: immediate
