Early Findings

Please note! We were not provided a geographic focus so we assumed a United States view. If a more broad approach is desired, for example, a global focus, this would have to be clearly communicated to us in any reply.

Summary Of Our Early Findings Relevant To The Goals

  • Our initial hour of research was spent gathering some data that addressed some areas of the five part question asked, as well as ensuring there was publicly available data that could provide the required data.
  • As mentioned at the top of the document, a geographic focus was not provided to us, so we assumed a United States focus. If a more broad approach is desired, for example, a global focus, this would have to be clearly communicated to us in any reply.
  • Please select one or more of the options provided in the proposed scoping section below.
