I have a research proposal and quote. Now what?

Once a provider submits a research proposal and quote, it's time to evaluate it to see if the suggested research will meet your needs and expectations.

The proposal should state the research question and outline what the provider will do to answer it. Ideally, it would give you an idea of what records the researcher will use, where they are located, what information they might (or might not) contain, and what you can expect to receive in terms of a report and document images.

The quote will estimated fees for the project including time, travel, and expenses, and will let you know if a deposit is required.

If the proposal and quote are agreeable to you, click on the red "Accept Quote" button.

If they aren't, you are welcome to halt the project by clicking the "Reject Quote" button or you may message the provider to ask for edits.
