I just got this inquiry through my site info request page. If anyone
is interested please contact them directly - if you are not a Corp
entity (when I talked to them it sounded like they wanted a Corp to
Corp contract) and you need to work on a W-2 basis, I can set you up
to recieve pay through my own company with just the processing fee I
pay through my employee leasing company
Right now I'm working full time on a security appliance and cannot
take this contract myself.
