Ted -  If we determined that the POC was illegitimate, then
we would mark the POC appropriate.  This does not mandate a 
resource review per section NRPM 12, and a change to policy
to mandate such would require discussing the level of staff
resources we would need to dedicate to this effort.

We contact them and explain that they need to update the 
contact information on number resources accordingly, and
if a different organization is involved, then must also 
initiate an appropriate transfer request.
