Yes, a bunch of us are looking into this. We have selected a
probable vendor, and are awaiting a formal estimate. Unfortunately,
the vendor has had an unexpected delay (connected with opening a
branch office at Yale) and is way behind schedule. I will get
anxious if there is another month's delay.

Yes, it is too complicated.  A number of experts independently 
recommended one particular vendor.

I wish things were far enough along to be able to say where to
send the money.  The plan was to set up a non-interest-bearing
bank account to hold such funds, but until the formal estimate
arrives I didn't think it worth while to actually set it up.
