Request for bids on curriculum development project

 Hi all...this came to me...I am unable to take it on at this time, but maybe someone here would be interested. Michele

Dear Michele:

My name is Jennie Steinhagen. I am assisting Susan Tatiner of the IEEE Standards Association on a university-level curriculum development project for a book of case studies about technical standards scheduled for publication by Wiley/IEEE Press this December. We found your name on the EFA Web site. Below are some details about the project. If you are interested, could you please share your thoughts and qualifications with us?

Project: Curriculum Development for Modern Standardization: Case Studies at the Crossroads of Technology, Economics, and Politics by Ron Schneiderman.
Project Timeframe: Goal is for material to be ready for editing and formatting in October 2014.
Project Scope: Develop university-level curricula support materials for each of the 9 case studies detailed in the book. The book (estimated to be 240 pages) is geared to undergraduate and graduate students in engineering and business. Materials to be developed include the following for each of the 9 case studies:
  1. "How to Use This Case Study in Your Classroom"
  2. Assessment
  3. Assessment Guide
Case Studies:
  • Smart Grid
  • Bluetooth/ZigBee
  • Electrical Trace Heating
  • TV White Space
  • mHealth
  • Wireless Charging
  • Automotive Event Data Recorders
  • Electronic Design Automation (EDA)
  • Internet of Things/M2M
  • This is a freelance/consultant, one-time, work-for-hire project. The material would be copyright IEEE.
  • All work can be performed remotely and information exchange will take place via email. Occasional phone calls may be required.  
Next steps:
  • We are currently accepting bids from consultants. Please let us know if you would like to submit a bid. If you are interested in the project, we will send you the original book proposal, a complete MS of the case studies book, and a SOW to help you prepare your bid.
  • If you are not interested in submitting a bid, is there someone you would recommend?
I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Thank you and best regards,

Work Type: Copyeditor with education experience


My organization's editor just retired, and, while we are looking to hire a new editor/head of publishing, I have a report coming out that requires an editor sooner than that. The start date on the project would be approximately July 1st, and we would like to complete the editing process by the end of July. Compensation would be negotiated based on experience and time commitment. We are an education policy/membership organization. The publication is on student data privacy. It will be approximately 60-80 pages including endnotes. We would like an editor with extensive experience editing these types of reports (similar to those put out by CAP or another think tank-type organization). Experience editing educational reports is a plus. We would actually prefer that the editor have no experience in data privacy or law since this publication is an introductory resource. The editing required is an initial heavy copyedit with drafts sent back and forth between our team and the editor (we will be checking and verifying sources and footnotes in-house, so that will not be part of the job), and then final proofreading. Please contact me with any questions at, and feel free to share this posting widely.
Location: Could be remote - Crystal City, VA
Rate: $ 30-50 per hour (no more than 2K total)
