Jeffrey,

The text was changed from "Upon verification that the organization has
already obtained connectivity at its new discrete network site"  because
folks felt that this meant the connection had to be up and running, not
just under contract.   I believe there is more justification required than
just "having a new site".   I see nothing in the current policy that states
an automatic /24.  Here is the policy text as it stands today from NRPM
(see below)

Thanks!
----Cathy

4.5. Multiple Discrete Networks

Organizations with multiple discrete networks desiring to request new or
additional address space under a single Organization ID must meet the
following criteria:

   1. The organization shall be a single entity and not a consortium of
   smaller independent entities.
   2. The organization must have compelling criteria for creating discrete
   networks. Examples of a discrete network might include:
      1. Regulatory restrictions for data transmission,
      2. Geographic distance and diversity between networks,
      3. Autonomous multihomed discrete networks.
   3. The organization must keep detailed records on how it has allocated
   space to each location, including the date of each allocation.
   4. When applying for additional internet address registrations from
   ARIN, the organization must demonstrate utilization greater than 50% of
   both the last block allocated and the aggregate sum of all blocks allocated
   from ARIN to that organization. If an organization is unable to satisfy
   this 50% minimum utilization criteria, the organization may alternatively
   qualify for additional internet address registrations by having all
   unallocated blocks of addresses smaller than ARIN's current minimum
   allocation size.
   5. The organization may not allocate additional address space to a
   location until each of that location's address blocks are 80% utilized.
   6. The organization should notify ARIN at the time of the request their
   desire to apply this policy to their account.
