  • As part of staff’s implementation planning, whether it would be feasible for staff to contact all 359,00 POCs with reassignments directly, and whether the maintenance of those records is the responsibility of their upstream provider with whom ARIN has a contractual relationship.

M&A (NRPM 8.2) transfer discussion Highlights included:

  • Whether the policy text could be clarified and the utilization requirements expanded in order to be more in line with current practice
  • The time lag between the M&A event and the initiation of the transfer process, and the rate at which transfers are abandoned
