Thanks Tebben,

Appreciate the quick work getting me an estimate. That figure is much higher than I have budgeted. Could you please itemise more clearly which aspects of my request require the time stated?

A "total hours" by each line item from my original request would help me to limit its scope. For example,

Any periodic statistical reports (monthly, quarterly, yearly etc) of pre-employment screening polygraph testing and results -- XX hours
Any documents containing summary or aggregate data on the demographics of individuals undergoing pre-employment polygraph screening. Demographics to include any of: race/ethnicity, gender, age, disability status. -- XX hours
Any reports or documents regarding complaints alleging gender, race, age or disability bias regarding pre-employment polygraph screening. -- XX Hours
Any reports or documents that are inspections, oversight, audits, quality control or assurance of your pre-employment polygraph screening program. -- XX hours.

Then I'll limit my scope to my budget!

Thanks Tebben,

Appreciate the quick work getting me an estimate. That figure is much higher than I have budgeted. Could you please itemise more clearly which aspects of my request require the time stated?

A "total hours" by each line item from my original request would help me to limit its scope. For example,

Any periodic statistical reports (monthly, quarterly, yearly etc) of pre-employment screening polygraph testing and results -- XX hours
Any documents containing summary or aggregate data on the demographics of individuals undergoing pre-employment polygraph screening. Demographics to include any of: race/ethnicity, gender, age, disability status. -- XX hours
Any reports or documents regarding complaints alleging gender, race, age or disability bias regarding pre-employment polygraph screening. -- XX Hours
Any reports or documents that are inspections, oversight, audits, quality control or assurance of your pre-employment polygraph screening program. -- XX hours.

Then I'll limit my scope to my budget!

best

Mark
