Thank you Scott.  As the co-author, I very much recognize this proposal text is a “first draft”.  Working with my co-author Jason Schiller, and having solicited feedback from the AC, this proposal was submitted to solve the general problem.  My hope was the mechanics would be looked at critically by the community during the PDP, and we would work together to improve them. 

Regards
David Huberman

>> 
>> Some large ISPs assign individuals to be POCs for reassigned blocks without consultation of the individual they are inserting into Whois. One year later, the POC is contacted by ARIN as part of Annual POC Validation policies.  The POC often does not know who ARIN is, what Whois is, and why they are in Whois.

>> This policy proposal seeks to improve the situation where a POC is unwittingly and unwantingly inserted into Whois.
>> 
>> It also seeks to mitigate the significant amount of time that ARIN staff reports that they spend fielding phone calls from POCs who have no idea they are in Whois.
>> 
>> Finally, it is hopeful that this proposal will improve the overall POC validation situation, by forcing ISPs and customers to work together to insert proper information into Whois at the time of sub-delegation.

>> 3.7 New POC Validation Upon Reassignment
>> 
>> When an ISP submits a valid reallocation or detailed reassignment request to ARIN which would result in a new POC object being created, ARIN must (before otherwise approving the request) contact the new POC by email for validation. ARIN's notification will, at a minimum, notify the POC of:
>>

>> - the organization(s) to which the POC is being attached.
>> 
>> If the POC validates the request, the request shall be accepted by ARIN and the new objects inserted into Whois.  If the POC does not validate the request within 10 days, ARIN must reject the request.
>> 
>> 3.8 Downstream Validation of Simple Reassignments
>> 
>> When an ISP submits a valid simple reassigment request to ARIN with an organization name OR postal address that is identical to one or more existing OrgIDs, ARIN will notify the downstream organization and obtain guidance on whether to accept the simple reassigment, or redirect it to one of the existing OrgIDs as a detailed reassignment.
