We're letting DHCP do the assignments.

We're blessed with sufficient public addresses to meet our needs.

If by management you mean logging userid to IP assignment, we let the
authentication portion of Clean Access / Cisco NAC handle that. I
believe Bradford will do as well. You don't have to manage the IP
address assignments so directly, except for inbound tunnels in your NAT,
if you permit that.
