Requesting for you to send any question that you have concerning the MVCOC. I’d be grateful for you to provide whatever details you feel is necessary to get your point across. Please don’t write anything that might compromise you or our organization (if applicable), although where clear evidence exists of significant negative history, especially of a serious nature, then we’d be grateful for such information.

See the presentations slides above that the Government prepared for their assessment. Please read all of the slides. I would escalate a comment on each bullet point.
