ACSP Suggestion 2012.5: Bulk Billing Management


Author: Mike Joseph   
Submitted On: 24 April 2012


Thank you for implementing most of the billing enhancements requested in my previous suggestion (ACSP 2011.16). I would like to offer the following additional suggested enhancements to facilitate bulk management of billing records for ARIN ORGs:

  1. On the list of ORG IDs for Billing Info page, show also next to each ORG the current billing status and, if applicable, amount due.
  2. Add a new report (like the Associations Report) to obtain the invoice history and account status for all linked ORGs.
  3. Provide a mechanism for updating the billing information across a group of ORGs at one time without having to enter the information separately for each ORG.

These changes will make it easier for those who are responsible for managing ARIN resources for multiple ORGs to have simpler and easier access to the billing information for those entities. Making billing management easier means faster and more efficient payments to ARIN.
