At least we agree partial here that the current RSA is currently
sufficient as it is.  Because stated in Section 6 (d) (i) (d)
“Acknowledges: (i) that this agreement shall at all times be subjected
to adopted policies;” .
There are no polices to guide staff  on how to investigate (review)
the applicant’s utilisation of the number resources already assigned.
Hence I fail to see how this policy is unnecessary.

I have proved that this policy is very necessary and rather seeks to
provide a framework in which staff can use to ensure transparency,
objectivity and fairness in the review of  assigned resources.

I fail to see the objection that was  raised and not addressed by the
authors, except the objections that this policy is costly and time
consuming for staff, if not, unnecessary,  duplicative  and harmful
The proposal has a long life and I see efforts of the authors to
address  real objections. What I have not seen is propositions to
improve and make things harmless.
