You didn’t explain in your post your rationale for not purchasing Joao Fabiano’s work. For what reasons did you rule it out? Difficulty in evaluation?
We evaluated all of the projects other than the three I specifically mentioned not evaluating. Sorry for not writing up the other evaluations—we just didn’t have time. We bought the ones that gave us the most impact per dollar, according to our evaluations (and based on the prices people wanted for their work). So we didn’t purchase Joao’s work this round because we calculated that it was somewhat less cost-effective than the things we did purchase, given the price. We may still purchase it in a later round.
Thanks for the response. That’s great feedback to hear.
