"Minimum staff required" is a little difficult. One can do anything

I suggest "minimum staff required to perform the functions
satisfactorily as determined by the IAOC", or something along those lines.
In principle, IETF administrative functions should be
outsourced. Decisions to perform specific functions
"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.
