ARIN-prop-147 Set Transfer Need to 24 months and Clarify Exception

Proposal Originator: Matthew Kaufman

Proposal Version: 1

Date: 2 May 2011

Proposal type: new

Policy term: permanent

Policy statement:

Change section 4.2.4.4 content as follows:

Replace:
"This reduction does not apply to resources received via section 8.3. An
organization receiving a transfer under section 8.3 may continue to
request up to a 12-month supply of IP addresses."

With:
"This reduction does not apply to resources received via transfer. An
organization receiving a transfer under section 8 may request up to a
24-month supply of IP addresses."

Rationale:

The exception should apply to transfers under 8.2 as well as 8.3 (and
any future transfer policies).

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.

Timetable for implementation: immediate
