Without the help of many independant contractors, there would not be enough support for all the events that use O2CM. Below you will find a listing of our team, where they are generally located and how to get in touch with them. Find one that works best for your event.
Standard rates for the technicians listed below are $525/day plus travel expenses. Feel free to contact one of them to help support your event onsite with Computer systems and Scrutineering Services.
