Starting at the phrase "because ..."

If I recall correctly the policy proposal was made on behalf of one or
more law enforcement agencies, which are unlikely to have, as a
primary motivation, a relation between putative locality of allocation
requester and availability of the resource allocated.

As I pointed out earlier, agencies of government, and other entities,
other than the agency which created the allocated resource and the
initial and subsequent mechanisms of allocation (unique, consistent
with the routing regime of the epoch, ...) are mere consumers of the
resource and not subordinating sources of policy.

If I'm mistaken a pointer would be appreciated.
