Staffing and Contracting
Would it make sense for the OER Foundation to establish a service to find (accredited) service providers (individuals or organisations) to assist with OER implementation? e.g. Service seeker posts a request/job indicating type of service required, platform (if applicable, e.g. WE, cnx, wv, ...), description, ..., and the system lists available service providers and/or allows them to bid? - K 14:47, 11 September 2009 (UTC)

Yes -- the OER Foundation intends to support and establish a node for accredited service providers to assist with OER implementation.
Ultimately this will be hosted on the WikiEducator.com domain --- we still need to consult with the community and potential service providers regarding the detail of how this may work in the future.
