In principle, IETF administrative functions should be

"in-house" should be explicitly justified by the IAOC
and restricted to the minimum staff required, with these
decisions and staffing reviewed by the IAOC on a regular
basis and against a "zero base" assumption.

"Minimum staff required" is a little difficult. One can do anything with existing staff if quality and timeliness don't matter. The IAOC has to determine those parameters as part of deciding staffing levels. I suggest "minimum staff required to perform the functions satisfactorily as determined by the IAOC", or something along those lines.
