Our timelines for this project were rather short (2 months); however Johnston Research Inc. undertook two northern site visits, a series of telephone interviews, and produced a final report on-time. The evaluators conducted themselves in a very professional manner throughout the process; in addition to being very flexible in order to get the job done.
