ARIN Online Maintenance Scheduled for Saturday, 02 May

ARIN Online will undergo maintenance from 7:00 AM until approximately 
11:00 PM EDT on Saturday, 02 May.

During this time, ARIN Online accounts will be inaccessible, 
transactions submitted via ARIN’s RESTful Provisioning service will be 
rejected, and any mail sent to ARIN Registration Services will be queued 
and not immediately acknowledged.

Once maintenance has been completed, ARIN Online accounts will be 
accessible and queued mail will be processed. Any RESTful calls sent 
during the outage are not queued, and must be resubmitted after the 
maintenance period.

All other ARIN publicly available services (Whois, IRR, RPKI Repository 
Services, etc) will be available during this outage.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation.

Regards,

Mark Kosters

Community Consultation on Election-related Bylaws Changes

On 13 April 2015, the ARIN Board of Trustees proposed changes to the
ARIN Bylaws. Per Article X. Section 6.b. of the Bylaws, these changes
require community notification and consultation before they can be
adopted.  ARIN is opening this community consultation to obtain feedback
on the following Bylaws changes.

1.    Article VIII. Section 4.a. Voting.

Current bylaws language:

Voting. Each General Member of record and in good standing on such date
that is sixty (60) days before a ballot or election shall be eligible to
vote (through its designated member representative voting contact) in
such ballot or election…

Proposed bylaws language change:

Voting. Each General Member of record and in good standing on such date
that is forty-five (45) days before a ballot or election shall be
eligible to vote (through its voting contact) in such ballot or election…

Rationale:
      a. Replacing the term “designated member representative” with
“voting contact” throughout the     Bylaws and in election-related
documentation more clearly describes the function of this type of contact.
      b. ARIN suggests shortening the time between elections and the
voter eligibility cutoff deadline     in order to provide member
organizations more time to update their voting contact information.

2.    Article VIII. Section 4. b. Election Period.

IRR Route Validation Consultation Extended to 24 April

ARIN has extended the discussion period for the community consultation 
about its Internet Routing Registry service. The new closing date is 
Friday, 24 April.

ARIN is seeking feedback on the following questions:

1.	Should ARIN begin a new project to enable IRR route object validation 
to the ARIN registry database? If this consultation results in support 
for moving forward in this area of work, it will be taken under 
advisement by the ARIN Board of Trustees for consideration as a new area 
of priority by the ARIN organization. If approved, ARIN staff would 
participate in community-driven initiatives in this area, and using 
information gathered from these initiatives and this consultation, 
produce a specific proposal to move forward.

2.	If yes, should this effort be coordinated with other RIRs to help 
facilitate cross-registry authentication?

3.	If yes, should this effort also support third party IRR route object 
authentication?

View the full text of the consultation at:

https://www.arin.net/participate/acsp/community_consult/03-17-2015_irr.html

We encourage community members to provide comments to

RFP for West Coast Co-location Services

The American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN) is seeking proposals
for Internet Co-location providers for hosting services for ARIN
equipment and applications used in the operation of ARIN's public-facing
Internet services. Many of the services provided by ARIN are important
parts of the Internet infrastructure. ARIN is looking for sites that are
situated on the west coast of the United States or Canada.

The vendor must provide or allow:

   *  40 rack units of space for ARIN equipment.
   *  Access to transit providers of native IPv4 and IPv6 connectivity.
   *  Access to a peering fabric for peering with other networks.
   *  Environmental and security infrastructure at their facility.
   *  24x7x365 NOC for problem resolution.

All contractual terms and conditions related to the work performed,
nondisclosure of information, or liability issues must be detailed. ARIN
will require that the vendor performing this service sign a
nondisclosure agreement due to the proprietary nature of the information
ARIN retains for its subscribers.

Proposals must be submitted before 15 April 2015 for consideration, and
must include a statement of work, full pricing details, and references.

We anticipate vendor selection by 15 May with deployment no later than
60 days after the contract is awarded.

Full text of the RFP is available at:
http://www.arin.net/about_us/contracts/201503_west_coast.pdf

Send proposals to west-coast-rfp@... or by mail to:
ARIN
3635 Concorde Parkway, Suite 200
Chantilly, VA. 20151

Technical questions may be directed to: Matt Rowley, ARIN Infrastructure
Manager matt@...

ARIN is operated as a nonprofit 501(c)(6) corporation which is chartered
for educational, charitable, and scientific purposes. It is a membership
organization with an official IRS designation as a business league.
