On 15 May, we received a new suggestion, numbered 2019.12 upon confirmed 
receipt, that ARIN make clarifying changes to the special policy actions 
section of the Policy Development Process. Staff is reviewing this 
suggestion and will issue a formal response once analysis is complete.

The full text of the suggestion may be found below or at:



Description: Add additional detail to section 10 (Special Policy 
Actions) of the PDP

Value to Community: Section 10 of the PDP (Special Policy Actions) is a 
seldom used section, but when it is used it is usually a significant 
action. The current PDP contains limited detail about the processes the 
community, advisory council, and board should go through when dealing 
with an suspended or emergency policy action.

My suggestion is to add additional detail and process flow language to 
this section of the PDP using the recent suspension of the wait-list 
policy as valued input into how a suspended policy may be updated.

My hope is that the additional details gives the board, advisory 
council, and community a better road map of how a suspended or emergency 
policy will be reviewed and implemented.
