The evaluation would involve reviewing the two proposals consisting of 17 pages total – and answering approximately 4 questions on an evaluation form pertaining to both proposals and let us know which if any of the two revisions you like best and whom is more qualified to update the book. There is a two-week turnaround for a completion of the project and an honorarium of $160.00 for completion. Hence, if you or anyone in your organization is interested in this project and would like more details – please contact me via e-mail or at the number below. Hope to hear from you either way.
