• Phase 3 - PowerPoint slides – approximately 10 PowerPoint files with 450 words each
• Phase 4 - Participant’s Guide - approximately 18,700 words
These documents will be translated and adapted into appropriate Spanish language documents by the independent consultant and returned to CRI on a timely basis. A specific schedule for delivery of each phase listed above will be agreed to by the independent consultant and CRI in advance.
Project Timeline: All work shall be completed on or before May 30, 2011.
This work will proceed in phases with payment made at the completion of each phase and delivery of the translated document. A phase, in this instance, will be defined by the separate documents outlined above.
