The process that LRI took us through was remarkable in several ways. First, you gave us a road map and directed us through a very complicated situation. The end result was a detailed, but easily comprehended, set of guidelines to inform our decision making. What was particularly impressive, given the complexity of the task, was your ability to keep us on schedule and operate within budget. I looked back at my notes today and the process took 10 weeks from start to finish.
