ARIN-prop-144 Remove Single Aggregate requirement from Specified Transfer

Proposal Originator: Matthew Kaufman

Proposal Version: 1

Date: 2 May 2011

Proposal type: new

Policy term: permanent

Policy statement:

Modify Section 8.3 as follows:
Change "can demonstrate the need for such resources, as a single
aggregate, in the exact amount which they can justify under current ARIN
policies" to "can demonstrate the need for such resources in the amount
which they can justify under current ARIN policies"

Rationale:

The "as a single aggregate" has been interpreted to apply only to
"demonstrate the need" as opposed to the resources which may be received
by ARIN staff. It is possible that the original intent was to require
than each transfer be of a single aggregate.

HOWEVER, as multiple Section 8.3 transfers may be executed serially by a
pair of entities which wish to use the specified transfer policy in
order to transfer any number of blocks as long as there is needs
justification for each, it simply saves the transferring entity, the
recipient, AND ARIN paperwork to allow a transfer of multiple blocks to
proceed as a single transfer.

Timetable for implementation: immediate
