Bill - 
  The ISP must demonstrate the need for IPv4 address resources under 
  ARIN standard allocation policies (i.e. a single-homed ISP showing 
  need for a /20 or multi-homed ISP showing need for a /22) in order 
  to qualify to receive resources via transfer.  Once qualified, we
  can approve the transfer of IPv4 space; this can be to a maximum
  of their documented need based on their current utilization rate 
  extended 24 months out, and down to a minimum of a single /24 (as 
  /24 is the explicit minimum transfer size specified in NRPM 8.3)
