ARIN Community - 

Several folks have asked for more statistics regarding specified transfer 
request processing.  While we are looking into options for producing such 
information via automation, we have manually reviewed the past tickets to 
collect the following information:

In 2011, there was a total of 24 Specified Transfers (NRPM 8.3) requested.  
Below is the current status:

Total 8.3 transfers       24 
Approved                  15
Pending/Abandoned          8
Denied                     1  (request was actually for simple reassignment)

In 2012 through July, there were a total of 19 Specified Transfers (NRPM 8.3) 
requested. Below is the current status. 

Total of 8.3 transfers    18
Approved                  12
Pending/Abandoned          5
Denied                     1  (duplicate ticket)

Note that "Pending/Abandoned" is a request which lacks sufficient information 
from the requestor to process.  These may be still be in progress, or approved 
to transfer a lessor amount than requested and then not further pursued by the 
requestor.  Note also that some transfer requestors later return with a fully 
qualified recipient so that the address block may later be an approved transfer 
to another party in these statistics.
