ACSP Suggestion 2016.12: Interactive Fee Calculator


Author: Adam Brenner   
Submitted On: 21 June 2016


The online fee estimator within the ARIN portal should be interactive.

This means we should be able to add OR AND remove resources (IPv4, IPv6, ASN) and the online estimator should provide us an estimate of what the new fees would be. Think of this as a “What If I {add/removed} the following resource{s}”

The resources we add OR AND remove to the estimator will in *no* way trigger any actions to the rest of the system (return resources, submit justification request, etc.) The whole purpose is for informational use and fee estimator should make that clear to the end user when adding OR AND removing resources.

Thanks, -Adam

Value to Community: Reduce questions to ARIN staff Improve understanding of fee policies Help in the future when fees change (because they always will)

Thank you for your suggestion, numbered 2016.12 upon confirmed receipt, recommending that ARIN provide an interactive fee calculator enabling resource holders to determine fee impacts based on what-if resources change scenarios.

Your suggestion appears to have value to the community and therefore we will add it to Engineering Projects Awaiting Prioritization.

We do not have a schedule for implementation at this time, and we suggest you check for any updates in the software development update report that is given at each of the ARIN meeting. At that time staff will report on software engineering projects have been completed as well as what we anticipate completing in the next six months or so.

Until your suggestion is implemented, it will remain open. Thank you for your participation in the ARIN Consultation and Suggestion Process.

This suggestion is not on the 2018 Work Plan and will be considered as part of the Community Consultation on Open ACSPs in April 2018. This consultation will serve as one of the inputs to help determine which suggestions will be included ARIN’s 2019 Work Plan.
