ARIN has issued its initial response to ACSP Suggestion 2014.24. The 
suggestion and response text are provided below. This suggestion remains 
open and is available at:



Communications and Member Services
American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN)

Suggestion: *

Description: I'm very pleased how flexible ARIN staff is in receiving 
documentation in a variety of file formats and types.

This is suggestion is relatively minor but should be easy to implement: 
when ARIN staff attach an ARIN form to a ticket, such as an Office 
Attestation, rather than assume the ticket submitter has access to 
Microsoft Word (i.e. officer-attest.doc), perhaps an HTTP link to both 
Word and (editable) Adobe Acrobat documents can be provided, or attach 
both versions to the ticket.

Value to Community: Makes the form(s) more accessible to more of the 
community on more platforms and operating systems.


Thank you for your suggestion, numbered 2014.24, regarding file formats 
used in attachments uploaded by ARIN staff in ARIN Online.

We are updating our procedures to ensure flexibility of file formats 
provided in ARIN Online tickets, based on preferences indicated by 
customers. We are also evaluating the inclusion of other file formats, 
such as PDF, in addition to MS-Word, as the default file formats for 
attachments uploaded in ARIN Online.

Thank you for participating in the ARIN Suggestion and Consultation 
Process. We will keep this suggestion open until it has been fully
