Things to be noted by Freelancers about this project before bidding:

1) Before you BID please note the nature of the work and payment structure. This work comes in regular flow and is expected to last for atleast 6-12 months.
2) The payment is linked to each successful verification of individual certificate that we provide. One applicant may have either 1 or several certificate for verification. We will however, pay for each certificate's successful verification.

3) The work will be considered done only when the complete steps along with WORD template and email confirmation or phone call recordings is provided. Post this our separate team will verify this details and may raise certain queries related to the verification, if in doubt. The applicant has to satisfy these queries.

4) Once step 3 is complete. The billing will happen by 3rd week of the subsequent month
5) Freelancer can expect flow of multiple such certificates and employment letters which need background verification each month. Processing more certificates over time improves efficiency and learning curve and thus the time taken for the activity drops.
Average processing time with experience is about 30-45 mins. Initially, this may take about 1 hour for each certificate verification

What is our budget:

This is a fairly simple task requiring natural language and internet skills. Task like web searching and template filing can be performed on any time of the week.
Only phone calls if required are to be managed during local work hours.

We expect a bid of usd 2-3 for each certificate verification (eg: if mr. John has 2 educational degrees and 2 employment letters, then this will be considered as 4 certificates ). With practice the time taken to process will drop.

Once we achieve a comfort level with freelancer's quality of service, the volume of work can be increased and can go upto 100 plus certificates making it a very remunerative project.
