Its more complicated than that.  I’ve submitted the proposed policy change below to the AC.  Obviously at this early stage I don’t know if the Community will accept this or not but 2014-13 complicates this proposal.  That is part of the reason why I suggested changing 2014-13 to specify a range rather than a fixed allocation.  I would be fine with having this proposal included with 2014-13 if the AC though that made sense.  Otherwise it can remain separate.

4. Problem Statement:

   New and small organizations are having a difficult time receiving
   resource allocations from ARIN because of the economic, administrative
   and time burdens of making their way through ARIN's needs testing
   process. For small allocations, the burdens of needs testing may
   exceed the value of the resources, or may deter small, less
   well-funded organizations' ability to receive an allocation from ARIN.
   As ARIN was created to provide Internet resources to ALL organizations
   within its geographic territory, this disparity in the Policy Manual
   needs to be addressed.  The problem can be remedied by removing needs
   testing for any organization that applies to receive the current
   minimum block size allocation.

5. Policy statement:

   "A Minimum IP allocation size(s) has been defined per Section 4 of
   the ARIN Number Resource Policy Manual.  Regardless of any policy
   requirement(s) defined in any other active Section of the Policy
   Manual, all organizations may apply and shall automatically qualify
   for the current Minimum IP Block Allocation upon completing the
   normal administrative application process and fee requirements, and
   all organizations shall be eligible for such an allocation once
   every 12 months.  Where this is in conflict with any other Section
   in the Policy Manual, this Section shall be controlling."

   a. Timetable for implementation: Immediate

I’ve double checked with staff and this proposal will not make allocations or assignments larger than /24 more difficult than today.

In the revised section Minimum allocation the text allows for /24 and larger prefixes, it isn’t limited to only a /24.

Correct.  An updated staff assessment is forthcoming which adds the sentence:

"If implemented, staff would continue using these well established criteria and
 guidelines for initial requests larger than /24."
