After taking the community feed back, I'd like to update my proposal to the

1) Summary of the Problem Being Addressed by this Policy Proposal Some
member are experiencing extreme long wait for their additional allocation
request to get passed, some members are experiencing none technical
information requested from Afrinic(customer data, marketing channel etc),
in order to improve overall service quality of Afrinic, here is the policy.
2) Summary of How this Proposal Addresses the Problem To improve overall
service quality and transparency of Afrinic’s number resource services by
documenting roles and responsibilities of AFRINIC.  3) Proposal

1.Afrinic should make decision on subsequent allocation requests based on
Afrinic   policy, and conclude a request no longer than the 20% of the
total period AFRNIC approves the resources for. (E.g. If Afrinic is issuing
resources to its member to meet its 12 months needs, the longest waiting
time for Afrinic allocation process should not be longer than 20%*12month,
to cope with 80% utilization requirement for additional allocation). If
Afrinic was not able to make decision on a certain request within this
period, for each additional month beyond this period, the requesting member
should receive percentage of the requested period of the total request
until such decision has been made, in order to protect member from smooth
running of its business.

  2.Afrinic should publish standardized base information request for each
typical type of resource allocation.

3.Afrinic should not store, request any marketing or business related
none-technical information from its member, for example, customer data,
marketing channel, and marketing budget.

4.Afrinic allocations should be solely made based on current policy, no
other factor other than policy should infer with afrinic’s decision on
processing allocation requests.

5.Afrinic board should never being involved in any form of resource
allocation process.

6.For the interest of overall policy development process, other RIR staff
as well as it's governing body personnel(advisor or board member, for
example) should not be involve in Afrinic policy development process.

7.Afrinic policy working group chair election should be conducted
independent from Afrinic board nomination committee, candidates should be
free of any requirement.

The main updated point is point 5:

5.Afrinic board should never being involved in any form of resource
allocation process.

Thanks very much and please update the proposal accordingly.
