Hi Andreas,

I'll ask the board to share the decision, on which the hiring of the external expert is based, public.
And for the rest you're asking too much details on board work IMO.

Hi Cor,

if there is a clear description of the task it shouldn't be an issue to
make that public at least to the TDF members.

And it would also be of interest which consultancy firms you have contacted.

Why have you only contacted those firms, although there are a lot of
providers of such offerings on the market?

What were the detailed criteria to choose only those firms?

Hi Andreas,

Good questions.
Yes, we had a clear description of the ask. We had contacted 4
consultancy firms with a summary, of which two seemed best matching.
We got offerings from them based on the precise description. Finally
we've chosen the one which we expect to be most helpful with checking
the process as described and taking (a first) look at the wider
communication. The price of the offerings did not differ much.


PS. For me it is not needed to use 'I think the TDF members want to
know'. It is OK if you are interested.

Hi all,

if I look at the price tag of this decision, I' curious if there had
been a complete task description done in writing before the decision.
And I also think the community and especially the TDF members want to
know if there had been a tender with the task description in front of
the decision.

Had there been done a market analysis / a comparison of cost before the
decision? I'd like to note that TDF is a tax-exempt charity, running on
donation money.

only to check the handling, impartiality and objectivity of the CoC

preference to go with the offering from Central Consultancy &
