Funds will cover the cost of transcribing interviews with stakeholders in the FIP. This research will collect data both from publicly available documentation of the FIP and from interviews with FIP stakeholders. Interviews will need to be transcribed before data can be extracted and analyzed. An experienced transcriptionist can accurately transcribe a one-hour interview in roughly two hours, a task that would take the inexperienced much longer.
Hiring a professional transcriptionist will free me up to focus more on my research and analysis.
