Is the cause of your concern:
1) ARIN's implementation of current NRPM 8.2 (M&A Transfer) policy,
which has ARIN work with organizations whose resources are no
longer justified under ARIN policy)?
If so, I would welcome any suggestions for improvement in the
implementation of this policy language.
2) The NRPM 8.2 policy itself?
If this is the case, then proposing a policy change which meets
your expectations would probably be the best course forward.
3) Parties expectation that their number resources would be
transferred contrary to the community-developed policy?
We do explain that number resources can only be transferred in
accordance with the community-developed policy, and actually
have perform hundreds of transfers each year as a result of
bona fide merger and acquisition activity (i.e. the vast majority
of the requests complete, as one can tell from the statistics -
Do you suggest we do more outreach so that those few who attempt
to do "M&A transfers" to circumvent NRPM 8.3/8.4 know in advance
that they will not be approved?
