for specific assignments within your company?

Do you find that the hardest part of your job is finding people to 
consult for and, conversely, finding the right consultant for the job?

recently announced that they are compiling a comprehensive catalog

	o Training
	o Hardware (Buying and Selling, Maintenance and Repair, etc)

			Product Design
			Application Programming
			Operating System Customization
			Porting and Migration
			Special Services
		Quality Assurance and Release
			Methodologies and Solutions
			Testing Services

A typical entry will probably look similar to the one I have
submitted for inclusion:
