    12/06/18 14:20 PM . Tim Bauer. Still going. No notable traction though. Pipeline still hasn't changed in recent weeks.

    11/23/18 14:11 PM . Tim Bauer. Still open per agent. No new candidates in pipeline since 11/14.

    11/09/18 14:06 PM . Tim Bauer. Per agent, this is now active (had been tabled for a bit). End-client now seems to have some urgency around the role.

    11/09/18 14:06 PM . Tim Bauer. Status changed to 1-Active

    10/25/18 13:24 PM . Tim Bauer. Closing based on lack of feedback from client. Will reopen if that changes.

    10/25/18 13:24 PM . Tim Bauer. Still in limbo (no change in pool overall at agent since 10/10). I'm going to close this based on lack of feedback.

    10/18/18 11:46 AM . Tim Bauer. Still in limbo here.

    10/11/18 19:20 PM . Tim Bauer. Status changed to WFF

    10/11/18 19:19 PM . Tim Bauer. Not sure what is going on. Pinged VMS today. Our submissions are the only ones in pool active at this point. Trying to clarify if the lack of movement is a sense of gaps in our submission. If so, I'll post out here. In the interim, holding.

    10/04/18 11:46 AM . Tim Bauer. Still open per agent.

    09/20/18 10:37 AM . Tim Bauer. Setting this to "B" rating as agent indicates this is sole sourced to them (so just us and 5 other vendors)
