    02/22/19 17:51 PM . Tim Bauer. Client changes position to FTE. Closing out contract posting.

    02/21/19 14:55 PM . Tim Bauer. Still going per agent. Still no changes (new submissions) in pipeline since last week. Key remains someone that has built (not just tested) Telematics solutions.

    02/07/19 14:17 PM . Tim Bauer. Per agent --> "We will consider Telematics candidates either at architect level that are above the bill rate, or at the bill rate but not architect level." Given that, if you have an architect level candidate feel free to submit OVER target rate.

    02/06/19 17:45 PM . Tim Bauer. Holding on submissions that seem to be more about validation (testing) of telematic solutions than building/architecting them.
