If you have enough staff to add unnecessary admin functions then perhaps
downsizing would be a better option for you than justifying your job with
busywork..  Some of us are busy, some of us are understaffed..  This is the
way of the industry and it is how we stay competative..  

As I have said before, I do keep records, I *could* provide a report on a
moments notice.  In the interests of accuracy though an audit should be done
before providing reports to ARIN.  Without the audit we are just back to
making up numbers, which makes the entire exercize worthless.  Heck, I can
fill out a utilization form with numbers that look good and justify my
position without even looking at my database.  It sounds like that is what
you are promoting, don't take the time to check, just fill in the blanks..  

If that is the case then abandon the numbers altogether and just say "Reply
to this email"..  It would have the same meaning.
