How are outside contracts decided upon?
Due to the necessity of securing work with exterior agencies, firms and foundations. There should be a committee dedicated to taking on the responsibility of which jobs are taken, declined or delayed. the committee should really only have to worry about the the numbers of available community members who have the required skills. However, if the institutions asking for members demands work that is contrary to the communities ethical stance or is currently involved in provable actions that run contrary to the benefit / future of mankind they should be turned down. Once again turned down contracts can be complained against and a a decision committee involving outsiders can be formed. No outside influence should be involved in research as it would create a bias automatically unless those involved are left unaware who requested it.
